In 1825, at the tender age of 13, Jacques-Barthélemy Vacherons son Charles César had begun his course of studies at the newly established Ecole de blanc in. The youths father wrote to Constantin: Césars classes will begin on the 20th.Each days lessons include one hour of applied mathematics. I insisted to the school committee that César must be prepared to someday take over the directorship of the business. This paternal intervention prompted the committee to teach the boy English and art history, and to give him additional training in mathematics. Before he was permitted to join the family business, César first had to work as a trainee under the tutelage of a Genève.
Watchmaker who was one of his fathers friends and who, in good old cabinotier tradition, was also respected as a talented poet and composer. César admiringly observed the precision and skillfulness with with this watchmaker manipulated tiny files and other primitive tools.
Ultimately, the quality and the perfect shape of a complex piece always depend upon the dexterity and patience of the watchmaker who fits and assembles its parts. These skills are further augmented by ample experience and a mysterious sixth sense which enable a watchmaker to know when the wheels and the pivots of the arbors have exactly the right amount of play. One year prior to the date when the penultimate Vacheron would join it, the business was relocated to the Tour de lIle. This move also served Jacques-Barthélemy Vacheron as a timely opportunity to retire from his erstwhile position as director. Afterwards, François Constantin collaborated with Charles César Vacheron.
François Constantin ceased his eminently successful travels and retired from business dealings in 1849. Vacheron & Constantin delivered one of its timepieces to the emperor of.Jean-François Constantin, a nephew of François Constantin and a co-owner, unexpectedly left the firm two years later to become and employee of another company, for which he worked as a watch salesman. With his departure from the family business, the name was changed to César Vacheron & Co. When Césars son Charles Vacheron took charge of the business in 1869, he renamed it Charles Vacheron & Cie. His tenure was brief because he succumbed to a serious illness and died the following year at the age of 24. On his deathbed, he asked to see the last watch manufactured in the atelier. His request was honored, and one of his last acts was to admire the miniature timepiece, which had been ordered by Czar Alexander II of.

Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches).
Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive. Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof.This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture. If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly.
Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust. If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc. Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring.
If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard. When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement. If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only i. Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower).
Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism. Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches. IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert.
Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down. To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement.Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth. Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement. Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed. Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day.
Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good. Vintage watches are very delicate and I package to the highest degree to prevent damage. High altitude flights can be hard on watches due to extreme temperature changes. This can cause the oil viscosity to decrease (gum up) and prevent a watch from ticking the balance moving freely etc.
It may need to be oiled when it arrives regardless of its recent servicing (if applicable). Although this is only a very slight possibility it can occasionally happen. I know most, if not all my buyers, are fellow collectors and enthusiasts, that's why I strive to provide all my customers with thoughtful and pleasant service. We can send all items to Worldwide.
