Vacheron Constantin's most complicated timepieces

Post by AJC on 2012-11-18, 09:29

Say the word complication to a sane man and he will do all not only to avoid it but to stay as far as possible from it. Say the same word to a watch collector and his eyes will become starry, his breathing heavy and find himself in a state of semi shock. Sometimesthese two worlds collide and things can get really and I mean REALLY complicated when the collector comes home with a ear to ear grin and his grail tourbillon, minute repeater, perpetual calendar strapped proudly on his wrist and his better half –in her habitual bad faith and lack of appreciation for the finer things in life -fails to understand why the kids’ college funds were just spent on a watch.

Click here to see (and drool on) the rest.

Definitely would keep watches like those vc calendars on a winder. I'd want to see it track the months as they go, not have to set it every time, there's no fun in that.
