at what happens at the Manufacture for those considering a visit to the factory.  By the way, this is something that I highly encourage for those who have the opportunity.

The pics are nice because in a way, they bring you a little "closer" to what the master craftsmen and women are doing at their stations in the factory.

Thanks Alex!

These scans give us an idea of the kind of work that goes into a VC watch but, from experience and as Duncan pointed out, one has to see the actual workplace to better appreciate the intricacies of each craft. 

thanks for the link Alex

I didn't know assembling a watch could take up to 8 hours!

Cheers,
