No need to present Philippe Dufour, one of the biggest independent watchmakers and the one considered to have the most exquisit movement finish.
In a recent discussion with Dufour on different brands and their movements he lauded Vacheron Constantin's caliber 1400 which he had taken some time to examine (his daughter used to work for VC) and according to him the movement is very well constructed and the movement finish is among the best available in series production. He also said that the bridge shapes had been made in a way which would make finishing difficult but which would also be a showpiece of the finishing talents of the watchmakers at VC! His only negative comment was that the movement was too small.
Kari Voutilainen and Roger Smith both had a chance to have a look at caliber 2475 at Basel last year (granted they only could see the movement through the display back) and both complimented the movement finish which was to them top notch and even surprising for a serial production piece!
