My name is Christopher and I'm researching this watch for my friend Raymond Newmark. Raymond is the ORIGINAL owner of a MINT Vacheron Constantin Watch that he wishes sell.
The watch is working and in MINT CONDITION as you can see in the images below. It has always been enclosed and stored in an air tight, fireproof safe when not in use. He only wore it for very special occasions, which over the years was about a dozen times. Every other year he would take it up to New York City to the Overseas Service Division on 5th Avenue for lubrication and Inspection. At the time of purchase this was considered the "thinnest watch in the world". The internals are a work of art with 17 Rubis inside. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the watched opened.
I have a few questions for you:1) When was this watch made?
2) What years was it produced?
3) How many of this watch were made?
4) What is the estimated value of this watch?
Any other information you can give me on this watch would be helpful. Thank you!
