I was fortunate to have been given, several years before his death, from my dad a rose gold, self winding Vacheron Constantin which I believe is ref. 4737 which he purchased from an authorized dealer in Switzerland in the mid 1960s as new old stock. It has a matching rose gold Vacheron bracelet. The watch is similar in looks to the Toledo which was recently reissued by VC, and caused me to think about dad's watch which had been kept safely put away for over ten years. Is there any source where I can find out more about the watch? I would like to begin wearing it? Should I keep it on the bracelet or wear it with a strap? If on a strap what would be the proper buckle and where might I purchase one? The bracelet appears to be too short for me, is there a way that I can have it extended/lengthened?
Is there any source where I can find out the details relating to the watch and of his original purchase? When my dad purchased the watch I recall seeing the original invoice from the dealer but unfortunately have not found it in his personal belongings.
