Vacheron Girod ladys watch.

OK, I found the way to send scans.
Thank you for your first answer.
Please do find herewith some scans of the ladys watch.

I thought that the name Vacheron Girod was used again through the 19th century for more common production.
Can you tell me more ?

Thank you.

Arnaud.

This name, A. Vacheron Girod, startedto be used 1786,

but your watch is not so old,

sorry to say,

otherwise...

What I can get from the pics and the number,

it's made around 1850, which is not bad

Philippe Patek, in my eyes the most overestimated of all watches,

started making watches 1845....

Then Vacheron&Constantin had been doing watches for nearly 100 years 

Number one is of course Vacheron&Constantin

Love your wife and a beautiful watch !

I really love it !

This is a movement from about 1790 - 1810,

just to compare.

And most of all wellcome to our little club

My wife is very happy with the news.

Now she thinks about selling it...

What can I say, I am a collector of drawings not a watch collector, though I have an Audemars, a Jaeger-Lecoultre, a Cartier, (not yet a Vacheron & Constantin), but those are wristwatches... I had a "montre gousset", from my grandfather, but it was stolen 18 months ago...and was not a Vacheron & Constantin otherwise I would have joined your club earlier !

Anyway the one we talk about does belong to my wife, so will the decision to keep or to sell.

Husbands authority is not anymore as it was !  

Thank you for your warm welcome !

For God's sake,

don't let her sell it!

It's got a personal value,

and at the moment you will not get as much as you believe for it !

Have a look at Antiquorum...

But a certain person, with very deep knowledge,

told me quite recently that pocket watches will soon be the winners.

No it was no I ,

but a person very high up in the hierarchy.

So, please keep it and above that,

it's beautful made.

A true keeper
