Vacheron Geneve... are they really fakes?

I am still puzzled with these Vacheron Geneve that some call fakes. I inherited this pocket watch (see my post from yesterday) from my grand father. So he probably had it since the 30's, knowing that his economic situation was reasonably good before WW2. So it must be at least 75 years old.
Easy to agree, nothing links these watches to VC, based on my web searches except for the letter mentioned a few times in this forum were VC denounces fakes with the name Vacheron Freres.
So where are all these Vacheron Geneves watches coming from? Is the cylinder a copy of a VC movement? Do the serial numbers on these have any meaning? Are there any specialists, forums, clubs etc interested in these?
Fakes are almost as old as the brands they are counterfeiting!

You certainly know how to find 'emcrying... I haven't stopped laughing. Thought about having it framed? Tony
Constantin Vacheron? I think he was an ancestor of mine! :-)

Well, there were several Constantins and Constantines in my lineage, but perhaps not this one :-) Gary
LOL, perhaps you can issue a certificate of authenticity!
