this time it's to bad to be truth Incredible. This is the answer that time really is bad in a big island... I said it before.  History is always returning. I may know something about watches, but I'm more sure of history. I have been reading history for over 40 years ( since I was 5 years old.. )  and I believe that know more about that, than watches... The big island is now paying, not the small island  that my heart is in... UK had to pay the depts after WW II.... Now the big, still the younger brother, must pay... The auction prices are the answer. Doc

I am new to the forum, but appreciate all the great info here. There were very few VCs in the auction (only 9 of 339 Lots), and bought this one: This is my first VC, and second ultrathin (the other is an AP2080, which I believe is equivalent to the VC1132).  I really love the cal. 1120 movement.  Interesting that there was an almost identical QUANTÌEME PERPETUEL AUTOMATIQUE (AP cal. 2120) that sold for much less than the VC.  Not sure why . . . I do have a question though, does anyone have any idea what the base cost of a full servicing for this watch would be at VC?  I want to take good care of it. Thanks!
Congrats on the new purchse!

And welcome to the Hour Lounge... Re servicing, I would suggest to contact either directly the Boutique in Geneva, or VC's US concierge service (you can find the contact details on VC's website). Please post pictures of your new acquisition! Cheers,  Francois

Thanks to all for the advice and good wishes.  As I live in NYC, I think I will take it to the VC store on 5th Avenue for a service quote.  I only have a lightweight digital camera, but here are some pics as you requested.  

congratulations on your perpetual and welcome to the Lounge as

Francois said take the watch to a VC AD and ask for a quote.
What a wonderful first VC! Congrats! (nt)
