 I'm amazed by the beveling of the case on your 4th photo

I thought you

Man you are the hero.....


This is what we can call a relaxing week end!
05/11/2008 - 00:55

I spent part of it refreshing the garden, and also the swimming pool...

One watch is missing for sure (or I didn't find it!): the 1827 jumping hour pw, which is a true beauty.

You should have join it together with its fellows, Doc...

Still enjoy the week end my friend.

Cheers, Patrice

Funny Patrice !

I showed it yesterday to a friend, who isn't a watch afficionado and he was stunned!

He just couldn't understand that it was 181 years old,

and even more what they could do at that time!

He is an engineer.............

For you

and good luck 


Thanks a lot my friend!

I like it, and you deserve it.

Let's see what I could catch next time... 


Refreshing ...

Hi doc,

You know that I've seen most of these pictures you just posted, which is part of your Art Deco collection, but everytime I see them, I can't help but envy you!! And it, as well as the almost daily visiting to THL, certainly refresh my enthusiasm for VC. My last VC incursion was about a year ago, and since then, some minor additions, but none VC. So, sorry I have nothing new to share, except a renewed passion. Thanks to Alex and you and other active Loungers who are making this forum such a pleasant place to visit!

Best wishes,


My dear friend Jian,

Who's counting: but it looks like 22:08 to me.

Additionally who was first:The first Vacheron and Constantin shown or a Patek Pagoda?

Who else but Luca!

Doc...You continue to amaze us with your collection.

But not only in watches but your span interests ranging from architecture to sculpture & the arts. perhaps we should call you the "professor" a true renaissance (sp) man.


It was just to kill some time :-) nt

Wow, an engraved single-action Colt! Just how deep and diverse are your collectibles?

Back to my original question: what came first, the Patek or the Vacheron & Conatantin?

Please Doc, you 're one of the very few that would know. Thanx-again, Miki  Miller&RugerMy "boy's" in their chair!

Cool dogs ! here are Pompe and Winston!
05/12/2008 - 16:51

About the Colt I got it from my dad, who told me that it had gone through the war at Krim,

and to Sweden.

You have any idea how old it is?


Re: Cool dogs ! here are Pompe and Winston!
05/12/2008 - 17:04

The lack of a patent # along with the 4 digit peice # makes it a very early Colt.

Now how about an answer to my question, please. Thanx-again, Miki

Vacheron&Constantin was first,
05/12/2008 - 18:22

and they were in all designs between 1920 and 1945.

All Pateks and others appeared after a year or two.

The pagoda appeared many years after.

This is from1950.

As it should be! Thanx Doc
