hello to all,
I lately bought a certificate of authenticity of a vintage Chronomètre Royal from Vacheron Constantin: I would like to do a few remarks:
- pros are :
--you are cheerly welcomed at VC boutique by a well-informed person,
--you get very nice certificate with a (so-so) picture (BTW is the picture/print UV proof in order to last ?)
--you get a nice leather travel pouch,
BUT, the major cons:
- the price 914,6 CHF (=565,6 € = 897,4 $) is way to expensive and even more when compared to other brands (PP, IWC)
I understand, VC is getting revenue from its well-made archives but this is expensive for individual collectors like myself: what should you do if you are a VC vintage collector with several pieces ? I would like VC to think about it: and create some formulas : here are a few ideas : special fee for multiples pieces ? in exchange of lending timepieces ? special Loungers price ?
I have added some pictures of a late acquisition requested by some loungers. Sorry but scans have been shot with a 3.2 MB telephone...
Have a lovely summertime !
