Perhaps different metals? Or added gems?
Looking through the catalogue
I can attempt an educated guess for the men's watches. A: calibre 1001 B: 1002 C: 1003 G: 1072 H: 1072Q K: 1120 R: 1701 T: 1014 1: yellow gold 2: white gold 4: platinum If you wish, fill in the missing calibres D, E, F for ladies watches
I was wondering....
..... Why dont you let this folder go through your high definition scanner and let us see all those fantastic watches !?
Always thought that was a cool piece. The registered trademark “all-proof” appears in the description for certain watches, haven’t noticed that before! Perhaps it refers to the Wittnauer case design? ...
I found that Wittneuer's earliest allproof started in 1918.
I tried to search if the manufacturer had applied for a patent at that time, but couldn't find it. I found that the screw-in bottom covers of the VC automatic watches in the above catalog are all twelve sided, while the manual ones are ten sided.
Wittnauer was using All-Proof
as a registered trademark into the 1960s so it was contemporary with this V&C catalog 1963 Wittnauer hang-tag courtesy of Google Images ...
