Those Were The Days

This 1990 auction catalog picture shows two very tasty V&C wristwatches.  On the top is an 1945 manual-wind in a 35mm 18kt water-resistant case, and on the bottom is a 1945 17-jewel adjusted movement in a 33mm 18kt case.  The middle watch is an AP 21-jewel automatic.

They sold for $2750 and $3300 USD respectively.
