Voice of the Angel
From 'Voice of the Angel: History of Vacheron Constantin Minute Repeaters 1' www.thehourlounge.com by Alex Ghotbi with support from Vacheron Constantin 31st of October 2013 " ...According to my good friend George the minute repeater is a very usef...
I would have kept one of the previous dials; the one in 2019 is for me too new and swears with a watch of this age...
The New Horizon
I've seen several questions about the dial, and it's a quite good question, what would be an appropriate thought. But I will come back later on this topic again. First of all I would think this question arises from a very first impression. My first impres...
The Don Pancho - Innovation Driven by Purpose
Coming back to the dial, the original dial is off course the real stuff, it bears the evidence about the original story of this watch, the signs only a real life could draw. As the story tells us, this watch was built for an individual called 'Don Pancho'...
The International Perception Review
江诗丹顿 don pancho : Very little to nothing to find in Chinese language about the Vacheron Constantin 'Don Pancho', from no interest or from no awareness - who know's? , Vacheron Constantin's Most Important Wristwatch , Vacheron Constantin: In Search Of Pe...
And many, many more to say...
First I was a little disappointed about the perception and the comments droping here and there. Most of them simply copy from Phillips initial words, but very little were able to provide an own opinion. And that from such bright and illuminated bunch of W...
150 years ago, telephone translate to chinese named "德律风"
It is a Name
Don Pancho is a name, there is no meaning. Don is something like Mr. or Sir but mabybe less formal than 'Sir' in the british sense. Pancho is just the common short form from his real frist name. Yes, they could be created with Chinese signs. But there is ...
I'm sure that
I'm the first person who send a picture of this watch to the social media Wechat in China.
i think Chinese collectors also have a huge amount of informations about vintage vcs. But it's rare for us to be more willing to talk about a vintage vc in public through social media.
there is a question
You and I are equally interested in vintage VC. Are you a private collector or an official representative of vc?
I'm representative of myself, nobody else. Engineering degree, located in Germany.
That is understandable..
And it also apply to most brands.. But VC do have some really good nice vintage pieces. Let alone the really rare ones. Those are the real deal.
Hi Student !
Your nickname here is nice 😂 You are part of a Wechat watch collector group or ?
How many experience you have with vintage Vacheron?
Hello Student, Do you were fortunate to read the articles of the original The Hour Lounge some years before? It was a online forum initiated by Vacheron Constantin itself, the manager then was Alexandre Ghotbi , now at Phillips Watches . Nowadays you find...
thank you timeset
I've been paying attention to THL on ins. I've asked a lot of questions before, which may cause some people to misunderstand. In fact, because I can hardly find anyone proficient on vintage VC in China, I have to resort to forums abroad (obviously, my Eng...

On the first sight..
Hi Student, To make an authentication you need more info and of course more pictures (top, side, back, movement, case back, as much pictures, in highest resolution as possible). And I guess you know that already very well. Where you got the watch from, is...
for your valuable suggestions. I'm sure its exhibited and will sell by vc. The dial have been restored. If I want to get movement picture, I must buy it .because I don't want to buy it, so let's just discuss it here. ...
No, not the lugs make the ref
It is the case design, two different layouts, easy to recognise by the pushers: ref 4240 - pushers down side, cause openings in the snap back for pushers ref 4241 - pushers up side, no openings in the snap back If you open the watch you will recognise it ...
an interesting question
VC few published the production of one type movement or reference . For example, the Chronometre Royal with caliber1007&1008. In 1942, the VC produced Ref. 4240, triple calendar, using caliber 455 . Then caliber 485, 495 were produced, with models 4241, 4...
