VC World Timer

Hi all,

I just saw the new movie about the VC World Timer, there a little is opening a wooden case where a book and the World Timer are in, my question is: is the wooden case the same when you go out and buy the watch, or is there a different case: Personnely i think that the Wooden case from the movies is really elegant and a sign of a quality watch , just superb crafted.

Kind regards fFlemming

Alex, I've actually been meaning to ask a question along the same lines as I have been looking through this website and online for a reason for the change to these boxes from the previous ones (i'm thinking of the ones with the open space where the cushion is circa 2009 or so). I mean the travel box has come in handy but I must say I was disappointed with this box, which came with a recent purchase - I know that a different one comes for the historiques ultrathin or when you look at the artistic pieces such as the metiers that come as a set in a beautiful display case. So I guess my wuestion is, does Vacheron supply display cases or presentation boxes along the lines of the Lange Marmottina (I think I spelt it right)? I have alreadyI spoken to my AD about some of the beautiful Vacheron display cases they had and was told that they are for display and are not usually sold, but figured I'd ask for a second opinion here. Admittedly, with a collection, an individualised watchcase becomes more moot, but aesthetically I believe a beautiful case compliments the aesthetics of an already beautiful watch and I am finding Vacheron quite lacking when compared to some of the boxes that come with watches from other manufacturers (such as Lange or PP). Best, walid
These boxes first came only for the quai de l'ile but progressively

were delivered with all the watches other than the major complications which have a different one. I agree that the box lacks some oomph but other than from some independents I haven't seen interesting boxes in some time. However, I'm not familiar with the Lange Marmottina, what is it?

The Marmottina is a Lange display case that I had the chance to see at an AD some time ago, so not sure if it is still being sold (and sadly I cannot find any pictures of it online) but it is a flat dsiplay/storage case for I believe 6 watches (the oddness of the name stuck with me) . Very simple, but very elegant.. Personally, if Vacheron issued a set of collector's boxes along the lines of the one used for the World Time ad, I'd go for it in a heartbeat! Maybe you shoild talk to them about that Alex! Best, Walid

Dear Alex, i just purchased my first VC, a Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time yesterday in the VC boutique at Hong Kong.  I have the same box as yours, except the two things to the right side of the USB device containing the manual. Is it the screw driver for the small screw of the folding buckle? Many thanks for your help! Best regards, Henry
Henry, welcome to the Lounge! The item in the box is a loupe. Don't

Hesitate to post photos and comments on your beautiful new watch.

Dear Alex, Many thanks for your prompt reply. Do you mean the two items marked by the green arrows can be assembled to a loupe? Is the loupe a special gift from your dealer or is it a routine item for the world time? Besides, is it true to that there is no more printed instruction manual, but just the USB electronic version? Regarding the half Maltese cross folding clasp, there is a screw holding it to the leather strap. I find it quite troublesome, as I have to go back to the store to adjust it. Sorry for asking you so many questions. It is my first Vacheron Constantin watch, hence I am not very familiar to it. Thanks again for your help! Henry
One is a loupe the other is a corrector pin which is delivered

With certain watches whose calendar functions are set with a corrector so it is normal if your watch does not come with this
