I made this acquisition online a couple of weeks ago after a friend directed it to me (knowing my Vacheronista tendencies ). The dealer was known to her and after doing some of my own research I found out that the dealer was fairly reputable.
The watch arrived at home last week but unfortunately I won't be home for another month!
The only pictures I have right now are from the dealer and shown below. I'll be taking my own when I get the chance (I'm really looking forward to the time when the next "what's on your wrist" post shows up and I can show this CR in my hand.
I can't wait to get my hands on it! The dealer says the watch is in excellent running condition and estimates the watch was made in 1908. I'll be testing its accuracy and seeing how it performs. If needed, I'll send it in to VC for servicing and while being serviced - get a Certificate of Authenticity. (Even if servicing isn't needed now, it will eventually - so sooner or later, I expect to get a CofA for it.
