Vacheron & Constantin Pocket Watches

Hi all,

I have two very old pocket watches that i believe are from V&C.

The first is signed A. Vacheron Girod , the case in 18 kt gold, has the number 68047, but I can not find the movement number which is signed V&C.

The second is signed Veuve C. Vacheron, the case (not marked but probably in silver) has the number 134522, but the movente has no visible number, and it is signed Veuve C. Vacheron & Cie..

I would appreciate all your help in trying to identify if thiw watchs are originals, and the production dates of both watches.

It is normal this movements have no serial numbers?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

João Santos

The Veuve Vacheron is from the period of 1870-75 when ownership of the company passed into the hands of the widow (veuve) of Cesar Vacheron.  The Abraham Vacheron Girod watch is likely from the same time as well, judging by the movement, and was a "second quality" line with lighter cases and less-jeweled movements.  The unmarked dials are not unusual.  Both watches only display a single serial number, reflecting the production of one watch at a time.  The movement will have the same number as the cuvette punched on the underside of the main plate.  They look in very nice condition, are they running?
