VACHERON & CONSTANTIN exported movements to the United States to firms such as Bigelow, Kennard & Co, which were cased demestically, typically in the period 1900-1935. Watchmakers from Vacheron Constantin were among the first to experiment with anti-magnetic features of a watch. The first anti-magnetic pocket watch was assembled by Vacheron Constantin in 1915.

The Nobel Prize winner for Physics in 1920, Charles Edouard Guillaume of France, invented a material he titled   “Invar,”  -derived from “invariable” due to its particular characteristics-  an iron – nickel – carbon and chromium alloy that was was the ideal material for balances as its coefficient of expansion was 15 times lower than that of steel and it was anti-magnetic.

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?


All watches, from mechanical to quartz devices, require periodic cleaning and inspection. GSW provides both cleaning and repair services with our main specialty that of restoring and repairing classic & vintage watches. GSW has established parts accounts with the oldest watch parts houses i
