How many of you have seen it ?
For many years Vacheron&Constantin was believed to been founded 1785,
so in 1935 they celebrated 150 years (!),
with a special watch
But suddenly after the WW II someone happened to look in the official archieves of the Geneva Town.
And found this document !!
And this is Geneva's own register of watchmakers, and from it you can read,
if you are good in French ,
that Jean-Marc Vacheron employed an apprentice 1755 !
So it's no fairy tale as we read about of all other new "old" watches.
And since they have been going on for 252 years,
it's rather impressing
No one is in the neighbourhood !
My heart belongs to my family,
first of all, of course,
but then to Vacheron&Constantin
