Info on old Vacheron and Constantin travel clock

I listed an old Vacheron and Constantin travel clock on ebay but now am curious as to its history as I can't find anything like it for comparison.



Here is the description with all the markings listed:
" large old Vacheron & Constantin 8 day travel alarm clock. It has been keeping good time since I've had it in my possession (over 10 years) and the chime has a beautiful warm rich tone. It has had a small repair to the dial between the 7 and 8 marks which I had professionally done when I originally inherited it. It was a college graduation gift to my grandfather who was born in 1903 if that helps date it at all. The dial is marked with "8 Days" in the middle, "alarm" and "Swiss Made" at the bottom. The top inner dial reads seconds in an almost sweeping movement and the bottom inner dial indicates the alarm which is set by a small plunger in the part that you wind the clock with. The back is marked with "setting lever","alarm", "stop" and the sentence: " Fabrique pour Vacheron & Constantin Geneve No. 113981". The inside of the back is marked with the numbers: 117659 with what looks like a slightly smaller 6 below that. On the movement in the upper right corner just above the little wheel and spring that moves are the numbers 4144. The case is in beautiful shape with no damage to the interior or exterior except for the signs of gentle use."

I know I'm letting go of it but I'm still curious nonetheless....

Thanks!

nice alarm clock ! The dial looks like the engineer Corps model. It might be an angelus clock and movement. Best regards, Berny
