An Aluminum piece from 1950 commissioned by a dealer for the Canadian Aluminum Company (what I presume is now Alcan?).

By the way - there are more Royal Chronometres in this auction - in yellow.

If I may make a small observation on the Alcan watch...

looks like the sub-seconds hand is a replacement.  Wish they would show a picture of the back engraving too.  If you are interested in the backstory of these watches, please visit this old Purists post: http://vacheron.watchprosite.com/?show=forumpost&fi=14&pi=2885201&ti=481941&msid=&s=

Thanks for posting those pics.

It's a huge 2-day auction with about 1000 lots!

Yes there are quite a few VC pieces. It should be very intersting. And i thought the HK auctions were large smiley

There are a few pieces that I thought would fit quite nicely into your collection, should you be "on the hunt".  Hope I didn't increase the competition on anything you may have had your eyes on.

I haven't decided if I'll bid on anything.

I may register but we'll see.

In fact i may just wait til the NYC auctions in December.

I did like the perpetual repeater PW but I think it will go for more than the estimate.

On the other hand I thought the reserve on the malte perp. chrono was a bit low.

I usually don't like white metals and black dial for a dress watch but

the Malte QP chrono is just WOW!!

The Mercatror still my favorite - thanks for sharing (nt)
