I have very carefully used this old hunting case, from 1919.
I don't think it's ever been worn before!
It's magic feeling to open the lid and check the time,
a whole little ceremony of my own
To open the lid, just press this piece of art, it's a wonderful feeling, I can assure you
To get some more inspiration, you just open the back of the watch, and there is everything your eyes want to see
No small 'micro' movements, seen through a glasses, just a real movement where all is of real size!
This watch has been my inspiration, really for the first time, by using it!
A point to be observed is, that this together with another Vacheron&Constantin pocket watch,
were the first V&C's I bought
Since it's in such amazing condition, I have let it stay in it's box in the vault, year after year, until I finally realized,
that even this watch, was made to use.
Radek, you perhaps noticed I had waistcoat on me, when we met in Genève, but I forgot the watch!
Never wrong with waistcoats, I love it.
Hej and thanks for a nice thought out post
