Hey! First off, I am completely new to the VC brand. I've known about it for a long time and I understand the prestige associated with it but I don't know much else beyond that. My grandfather left behind this watch when he passed and we've held on to it without knowing much about when it was bought, what modeal it is, etc. I was wondering if anyone could help me pin down any details about this watch.
I did some research online but again I don't know much so forgive my ignorance. I read somewhere that in 1972 they switched from "swiss" at the VI position to "swiss made" is that true? If so than this would be pre 72? Also that the lack of the & means it is either late 60's or early 70's.. is that true? That would place this watch most likely in 1970 or 1971. Which does make sense for when my grandfather would have bought it.
Thanks in advance, ANY help in gathering info on this would be GREATLY appreciated. I plan on taking it in to a VC store for service and more info eventually but I was hoping to gather as much as I could before that.
