Vacheron Constantin tradition making excellent watches

This tonneau-shaped timepiece, with power reserve indicator, sub-seconds, and date manufactured in 1995, commemorates the 240 anniversary of this brand. It employs a caliber 1127 automatic self-winding Jaeger Lecoultre based movement with 36 jewels. The movement is numbered as well as the case. Case, movement, and dial are signed with the company name. This watch in 18k yellow gold has a case dimension of 33x33 mm, comes on a brown croc strap, and an easy 18k deploy buckle with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

It was a challenge and an honor for our watchmakers to work on this Vacheron Constantin Jubilee 240 Anniversary Edition

Gray and Sons received the watch from a collector that wanted to make sure we were going to follow manufacturers’ protocols.



After we started to disassemble the watch, we noticed that the gaskets were not sealing the movement correctly and that it had several spots with water intrusion that slightly damaged the case in 4 different parts. We called the customer immediately to make him aware of this situation and shared his concern but reassured him that the watch was in good hands.

The movement was removed. Case and buckle were sent to one of our polishers to detail and polish the gold to its original beauty, meanwhile, our watchmaker had disassembled the movement to the barest parts. Cleaned the parts with a multi-stage process to remove dirt and old, dried lubricants.

This process may take only a few minutes to read, but it takes approximately 9 to 10 working days to accomplish, after which, the movement is put together again to start working on the regulation, timekeeping accuracy, power reserve, and synchronization of all the parts involved for this magnificent movement to keep time, this new process taking 7 days.

Then the watch will be re-cased, and for the final checks, two specialists will test the movement manually, check the power reserve using mechanical wheels for timekeeping, and pressure machines to check for leaks, this will take another 10 days. The watch is almost ready to be shipped back and we will have another associate check everything all over again with new eyes and have these final tests done before we ship it back.
