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
Very Nice!

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!

Thanks for posting, Alex. The messages show the various marketing concepts employed by VC at various times and countries. Very informative and interesting indeed. Cheers! Kazumi

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.
