While I'm still waiting for my OS 42040 (scheduled to be here yesterday...grrrr) , I've been looking around. I've seen several watches that I'd like to get, read the discussions and articles on this site, and watching the smoke come curling out of my pockets...
The next Vacheron Constantin I'd like to have is either a Historiques 1912 or 1921. The new and pre-owned are not that far apart, and so I decided to save for a new one—taking on the kinds of projects required. (For my next consultancy, I'll just charge: 1 VC Historiques 1912 or 1921.) This may take a while.
As noted I've read the articles about the watches on this site, and I was curious as to what individual experiences with these models has been. Is there anything I should find out before purchase? Also since it's going to take a while to save up, I have plentry of time to look at any suggested articles. (I downloaded the PDF file that WatchTime has on VC, and while they mention line Historiques line, they did not consider it a "Major..." one—including only Patrimony, Malte and OS.) I've looked at other articles and YouTube videos about the Historiques 1912 and 1921, and have yet to find one less than gushing.
Anyhow, this is where I need to ask, and like everyone else, any pictures of your Historiques 1912 or 1921 are delightlyfully welcomed.
