More history!

In a letter dated 11 April 1820, from Jaques-Bartélémy Vacheron to Francois Constantin,
he wrote about an accident that had happened to their rivals,'Téron Allier& Bachelard',
when their traveller was overturned while crossing a river in The Low Countries.
' If a similar accident should happen to us,
there must be no hesitation in immersing our movements completely in oil:
like that we shall be able to clean them,
otherwise they will be watches lost, as happened to these gentlemen'.

A historic jewel, my friends!

Speaking of foresight!
