Since I got interested by swiss horology, famous watchmakers as Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe have been the focus of my passion.
Like a lot of people, what appeals me the most are the Grand Complication Watches, so in 2005 I was very pleased with VC for the Tour de l'Ile, which is a magnificent watch, and since that year, VC has been working hard, getting better and better and therefore assuring its space as a Top swiss watch manufacture.
What really annoys me, though, is the fact that Patek Philippe is still advertising as the "finest timepieces" maker, and I know that this is not true. I know that VC has the same potential, same engineering know-how but it still have longer history, and this is what differs the most both brads.
So, I think VC should use this great moment in its history to make its highest achivement. I know it is a bit silly of me to try and ask for something like this, but I am sure that everyone in this forum would agree with me: why dont VC develops a pocket watch to finally beat the PP pround, the Caliber 89?
I am aware of the huge amount of time (and of course, money) that developing such a watch takes, but I think this would finally step VC up to PP recognition level, something VC has not achieved yet, even with the potential.
Thanks a lot.
