While on the subject of books...

I received my first VC book this weekend!

It took a while to get here, but I finally got my hands on "The Secrets of Vacheron Constantin" - thanks to VC and to the HL!!

I've quickly gone through it to admire all the lovely pictures, but I'll be doing a more serious lecture in the coming days...



Lucky you!

Have nices hours

Do you have The World of Vacheron Constantin?

If not, get it !

It's a fantastic book, not so many pictures as Secrets of VC, but far better litterature,

and at least as big and imposing, one of the best books, perhaps the best,

when it comes to the culture, art, music and atmosphere from 1755- WW II ,

that I have read! And I have read quite a lot of European history...

Written by much more knowledge of the V&C history,

it's a masterpiece !



That one is really hard to find

Thanks Doc and Mario...

They occasionally pop up on ebay from time to time.

There were a few recently but not in the last 2 weeks.

I checked my book contacts as well who have links to booksellers worldwide, and unfortunately not one in any language.

You just have to keep checking

Good luck!


Been looking for this book for a couple of months and

difficult to find. Hopefully persistance will pay off, it sounds like a great book.

Discover a lot of the best of VC!

Like Mario, I tried to find the World of VC, in French or in English, but at this time, I am more than empty-handed! 

Not so easy to get, and maybe not ready to be reprinted!

Seen a French version

Thank you Mario,

I am checking if still available.

If you guys search the net ,

you'll find World of VC.

And it's repeatedly at ebay.

I got two, one in English and one in German

It has never been cheap and will never be,

so it's just to buy one, and pay what it costs,

but it worth it.

I read it three times, 2 in English and once in German

Yep, are you V&C WIS, the most dangerous of them all, so are you



again thanks
