The first I seen before and more, I was very close to get that watch at an auction, to my daughter I haven't seen any since... Love that one from the driver's place and the blond lady, of course... Thanks Alex Doc

Dear Alex, Thank you so much for posting these! I look forward to more! The posters are very educational, and I really enjoy tracing V&C's history and important moments through them. I note the discrete removal of "&" in the last poster, even though the second-to-last was dated the same year! Are these posters already published in a book? If not, a special compilation would make a very useful source of information for any Vacheronista! Best regards JAMES
Very beautiful and interesting ads!

Fascinating ads, Alex Though I doubt Edward VII wore that watch since he was already dead for about 40 years when the watch illustrate came out. And since you and I are very familiar with it, I suppose that makes us "Elite" Ha ha!! Joseph
Anachronisme, peut etre?

No anachronism here; ad simply states that Edw VII was one of the "famous owners" of the brand. It's the juxtaposition of old and new - - just like the driver of the automobile juxtaposed with the horse and carriage in a previous ad - - that places Vacheron & Constantin in a unique position of providing excellent timepieces over a long period of time and comforts the reader.
