In an earlier post some time ago I told you about my latest addition: ref 6782. Because it did not have the original crown and the movement could benefit from a service, I sent it to Richemont Europe, who forwarded it to Vacheron. They inspected it and posted a complete overview of their findings. All this within 5 weeks after sending it to Richemont Europe btw. The plan will be a general overhaul of the movement and gentle renovation of the watch (new glass, cleaning etc). Looking good untill I received the timeschedule........it stated that it will take 24 to 26 months to complete the works. Now, that will be a loooooooooong time waiting. However, on the other hand, considering the time I spent to find it....;-)
I will post pictures of it as soon as I get it back......in a year or so. For now I have only this "before" picture.
