as an avid watch collector (novice) sure will not miss Treasures of VC, a legacy of watchmaking since 1755, 24 jun - 14 aug 2011. amazed by the exhibits! in addition to exotic watches, there're tools, machinery n workbenches that provide a holistic n contextual intro to the complexity of the trade. here i captured some interesting exhibits:
1st known Pocket Watch created by J.M. Vacheron, 1755.
1st Chronometre Royal Gentleman's Wristwatch, 1953.
Platinum, Perpetual Calendar, 250th Anniversary in 2005.
Some Unusual, Unbelievable, & Exotic Items:
i learnt that 2 master-craftsmen, Vacheron & Constantin, are involved. besides rolex, patek, ap, there's also VC. a book is available at the national museum n maybe major bookshops too.
What's The Time, older page here, will tell you my humble adventure with watches.
Value of Antique n Vintage Watches will only appreciate. before the price moves up soon, grab it at www.wonderbowls1188.blogspot.com.
