Bonjorno Massimo e benvenuto!

Since you are a newcomer and likely will have trouble navigating around, here is a link to the article which Dean mentioned:

http://www.thehourlounge.com/en/vacheron-constantin-articles/history-vac...

You will find your answer there, but you will also find many interesting and fascinating facts and photos about the history of Vacheron chronos.

Read both parts!

In addition the collection of articles will keep you busy for days exploring the many faceted world of Vacheron Constantin.

Buon divertmento!

I hope that wasn't just a run-by-fruiting no.  Still waiting for pictures...

Truly, one can never go wrong...
