I showed you this, one of my latest vintage watches,
still with art deco design,
and these beautiful lugs.
But to be honest I didn't know more than it was from the 40's,
or rather suspected, but that was all.
Thanks to a very dear friend at Vacheron Constantin,
I have learnt the following about this little watch :
Case and movment are matching.
We started manufacturing the watch in april 1948
We had the watch in inventory in december 1949
The watch was sold in 1952 to Rosenwasser in Le Havre France for 765.--francs
The descrition of the dial matches the picture.
Isn't marvellous !
It's not only a little beautiful gentleman´s watch.
it's a watch with it's own distinct personality !
This was a short lesson in, "How to fall in love with a Vacheron&Constantin" :-)
