Once again, sorry for repeating myself, but you aficionados who don't own a pocket watch,

are no aficionados, and more, you lose something fantastic.

This are the true Vacheron&Constin watches, as I hope you see cool

This is where VC's "Patrimony" begins heart.  A great timeline Doc, and a real asset to those of us who study the history of V&C movements!  I'd love to know more about the Ahren watch...where did it get that name?

The Ahrens Story.

Otto Ahren was for decades Vacheron&Constantin's AD for Germany.

He let this watch be special designed and made for himself.

I have sold it to The Museum of Vacheron&Constantin, as some of my other watches, among them the 1827,

which I think now wears the name 1824, in the newly released book " Treasures of Vacheron Constantin ",

 so it can be seen by all aficionados.

I'm satisfied I have tracked and hunted them down, and once owned them.

They are part of Vacheron&Constantin's history and shall be the Musum heart

Here is my dear friends answer:

Sold on 25 June 1931 to our retailer OTTO AHRENS probably unique not part of a serie. Matching numbers look like description in archives. Dominique Bernaz Directeur "Maison" Vacheron Constantin Vacheron Constantin, 7, Quai de l'Ile Case Postale 5625 1211 Genève

1929 was a very good year.
