Very beautiful and mint movement, simplly stunning.  Can someone please tell me what is the part that joint the middle jewel and the screw?



Thanks, Ling! Based on surveying the several lots offered

by Antiquorum over the last 5 or so years, it seems all these center-seconds deck

watches were produced during WWII.

The copper(?) spring you refer to is typical of indirect center-seconds movements, and

helps damp inappropriate motion of the seconds-hand, especially while setting.

Thanks, Steve.

Ah! The part that I referred to is actually "spring". Thanks for sharing.

and so open it and you find a treasure!

That's so very Vacheron&Constantin it can be!

Thanks for your amazing pics,

it pushes me even more, to let my Kullberg stop :-)

Thanks Steve,

and more,

congrats to another beautiful VC!

I always knew you would sooner or later become a VC aficionado.

Ask Alex, I said it several times to him :-)

The way you presented your first Vacheron&Constantin Chronometer Royale,

to me, it said it all.

I say this with a smile of recognition :-)



Thank you, Doc, you are such

a gentleman!

Although the carrier's brass bezel is pretty discolored, the watch itself is in I think quite good shape for a 60+ year old watch used officially, rather than privately,  there is evidence around the tab which opens the back of very regular service, but it must have been competent and careful, the movement is nicely clean.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing! (nt)
