Vacheron Constantin ads from 1887-1959.

I have over the years downloaded a lot of pictures of Vacheron Constantin ads. I think that they can give us as collectors of VC timepieces a unique view of how the company chose to present their watches in magazines throughout the years and with fashion constantly changing.  I have not taken the photos myself and the quality can be quite bad from time to time but it is possible to take a mental journey throughout the years with this great company. Some of these ads are on sale on Ebay and other places, but I'm not the seller and I have chosen to present them here anyway since I see it as an important document of the Vacheron Constantin history.   Please notice that the dates of the ads may be wrong.   I wish you all a plesant trip down memory lane.

Fantastic compilation and the one with the CR and the big box interested me especially ! Great job ! Francois
Thanks Francois.

Good to hear that there was a picture or two that could "light your fire" for the wonderful CR pieces by VC. smiley Best wishes Kent
Thanks Kent
06/27/2013 - 14:57
Fire was there since a long time, but my question was more what was the box in 1957 ;)

My oh my. That was really boring to upload all these pictures. There is of course a lot more of ads, but this is what I have on my harddisk. I hope that some of you will find an ad that shows a watch that is in your private collection. Kent
Thank you

Wow thanks for taking the time to post
Thanks Hamish.
06/26/2013 - 13:23
I hope that you enjoyed the very nostalgic ads of the triple calendar watches from the 40-50s. The one with the plane in the background is just great. Cheers Kent.
Outstanding Advertising Review!
06/25/2013 - 20:30
Thank you so much for all your hard work gathering and posting these, Kent.
Thanks Michael.
06/26/2013 - 13:24
Good to hear that you liked the post. Sorry that I didn’t have some ads of some of your remarkable pieces from the 90s. I love your watch collection from that period. I hope that you found the Toledo ad from 1952. I wish you a pleasant day. Kent
Excellent Kent! Appreciate your hard work....
06/25/2013 - 22:42
A great reference...thanks for posting. 
Thanks LiquidSolid.
06/26/2013 - 13:25
I hope that you found some of the ads of the Chronographs from the 40-50s. It’s a beautiful watch you have bought and I hope that you enjoy it. All the best. Kent
Thank you, Kent
06/26/2013 - 00:00
These ads have been a treat to see.  It is terrific to have so many of the ads over the past decades here in one location.  I imagine the dowloading of these to the site was very boring indeed.  But we appreciate your effort very much.  All best, Robert
Thanks Robert.
06/26/2013 - 13:28
Indeed, indeed it was boring, especially yesterday frown,  but it has been worth it because of all the great comments from you and other members here at THL smiley. Sorry that I didn’t have any ads of the more modern pieces.  But I guess you have all the extras for your “modern pieces”  Hope that you will have a great day. Kent
Wonderful collection of both sets, Kent
06/26/2013 - 05:55
Congratulations and well done. A fantastic compilation of VC ads. All the best, Joseph
Dear Joseph.
06/26/2013 - 13:28
I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the post. For a man with your impeccable taste and with a collection so big there must have been a few ads popping up showing a watch that you have in your possession.   Thanks for always being so supporting both to new and old members here. The site wouldn't be the same without you.   Kent
What a great post to return home to

Thanks Alex.

It means a lot to me that you have found this post worthy of "the recommended threads" section. I hope that some of the ads struck a melancholic chord in you remembering some of all the time pieces from VC you have acquired throughout the years.   As always I'm looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve for your next post.   Kent
