For many years I have been searching !

If you have this book, if not, get it,

on page 404, it's at the bottom of the page, with black dial,

but I have once seen it with gold, as I remeber,

and that's what I have been searching.

For many years I have been searching !

For many years I have been searching !

For many years I have been searching !

You can see the number, 261485, and the year when it's made, 1936,

no it's not I, who has written, it's in VC's archives For many years I have been searching !

A couple of weeks ago I ran in to this one,

For many years I have been searching !

not golden but copper-coloured dial !

The miscolouring is from a reflex in the curved glass.

The watch measures 30 mm.

For many years I have been searching !

For many years I have been searching !

For many years I have been searching !

For many years I have been searching !

And when you open it, you find these figures, let me explain.

The number is 261483, which means it's made two watches before(!),

the sister in the book !

The other hallmarks which starts with a B is importmarks for London (!) from 1937 ,

yes they had different hallmarks for several towns.

For many years I have been searching !

And finally the movement.

For many years I have been searching !

I'm truly happy for this Art Deco Vacheron&Constantin from 1936 !

For many years I have been searching !

And yes, I slept with it the first night For many years I have been searching !

Cheers

Doc

Purely gorgeous! What I find so interesting is its avant garde

design. It comes from 1936 but would not look out of place in the 50s!

May it only time happy moments

It is a real amazing watch, Doc

And really so close to the one from the book.

I am happy for you.

I hope one day to have a look at your collection, which must be of great interest for the Art Deco period, and very instructive.

All the best to you, Patrice
