Newbie with a question.


I'm Rafael T, and I am interested mostly in military watches.  I am an admirer of Vacheron Constantin watches, and my wife used to have a couple of her father's VCs before we were broken into some years back.

Yet.  It is owned by a widow that has that watch, and another.  She does not know if she wants to sell just yet.

In a related note, would you know if VC offers repair/restoration services for these watches?

Thank you very much for your help, again.
