which is an old Swedish expression,
I keep repeating that I miss the &
as you must have noticed......
This the oldest company dropped it 1974,
We who lived during the 70's only remember bad taste,
flared trousers, uncut hair and bad music !
Just have look at Doc in the 70's and don't die of laughing
Finished rolling on the floor yet
The 60's is something to remember,
think of the music,
even you who wasn't born then,
knows the Beatles, Stones and Beach boys,
I can go on for ever.
If we only compare the watches from the 60's with the one made during the 70's,
it says everything.
Thats when Vacheron & Constantin dropped the & !!!
I always wondered where, I looked everywhere,
but I can't find it !
It's like going around with a car and suddenly the 6th gear just disappeared
For some years,
most when it were widows or old mothers,
it for short periods was renamed,
but such were the tradition.
But since 1819 the name has been Vacheron & Constantin !
From 1st of April, so it got to be joke that someone stole it in the 70's
You my friends,
Mr Torres and Mr Dom. Bernaz,
I beg you on my knees bring back the true name.
I promise to come to Geneva and celebrate this,
with kissing your shoes, promise
The following watches are my own, and sorrowly pictured by me,
but on the other hand there is no tendency of making anyone more attractive,
than the others.
I have only gone in and cut out the names..
They are from 1910 - 2005.
We start from bottom, in this case 2005
1937 and I love, brushed rosé gold and yellow gold indexes,
in a year they only produced 439 watches, but still absolute top class
1910, lady's watch also a favourite and you know why
But all was about to bring back the true name!
Vacheron & Constantin
This is Doc's dream and ambition,
except the book...
After written this,
perhaps there will never be any book !
Love you guys at Vacheron & Constantin
from floor to top
