When I was young, this was a terrible day,
not meeting friends,
only boring music on radio,
it was the day that was the worst of the whole year.
Of course there were no Internet at that time,
it surely had been cloosed.
Nearly two years ago, 2005, April 3,
Antiquorum held it's amazing auction,
The Quarter of Millenium of Vacheron Constantin!
Imagine that another famous brand, which I don't want to mention here,
has to wait 82 years, to make an auction with the same title.
Then will Vacheron Constantin long ago passed, 300 years !
My wife and I, had the pleasure of participate at the auction,
together with about 1000 (!) other persons!
250 pieces, were carefully selected, during two years,
by a team of from Antiquorum and Vacheron Constantin.
I believe they had about 3 times the amount of watches to chose from,
as were presented at the auction.
But of course, the magic number of watches to be auctioned,
were 250 !
It was not one watch for every year, but the best the team could find,
and the ones best representing all the different stages,
through the years.
I was lucky to leave the auction with one of them.
Vacheron & Constantin 1950.
Enjoy the Easter,
forget the Long Friday :-)
