Recommended reading - Calibres 2253 & 2260

I have recently finished reading a fascinating book about the Calibres 2253 & 2260 published by Assouline. The text is very accessible and despite being a substantial hard back book it does prove highly readable. However, whilst the text is well written, it is the images which truly astound - they are superb!

My favourite image is of the central wheel bridge of the Calibre 2260 shown in both unfinished and finished form. It perfectly shows the adroit skill of the artisans who work at Vacheron Constantin.

Sadly, I doubt I will ever have the pecuniary means to own a watch containing the Calibre 2260, but this book at least accords a charming glimpse into the world enjoyed by a fortunate few.

Definitely a recommended read (and view). 
Thank our leader, Alex....he is the author of this entire series
