Finest Swiss Replica Vacheron Constantin Malte Tonneau Chronograph Men's Watch In Hot Sale
we continue discovering the Replica Vacheron Constantin's tonneau shaped creations from 1925-1936. A period which may seem less creative than the early days of the tonneau but nevertheless the brand continues experimenting with different shapes and styles and introduces the first two tone tonneau cases mainly in white and green gold. The birth of the tonneau shaped wrist watch is pretty much linked to that of the wrist watch. Interestingly and on a side note it is the only type of Replica Vacheron Constantin Patrimony wrist watch shape which has retained its name in French rather than use the English term of "barrel shape" which probably makes you think more of Albanian snake oil than the velvety poem for the soul that a 1964 Petrus can be!
You can almost say that the Replica Vacheron Constantin Simple wrist watch was born in tonneau form! I'm not referring to watches born as pocket watches with soldered lugs but to watches created from the beginning to be worn on the wrist the later rising some kind of a scandal in the early 20th century as the action of looking at the time was perceived as a serious infringement of the most elementary conventions of polite society. The Revue Internationale de l'Horlogerie Suisse in its March 1, 1913 edition even published an article entitled "Can the wrist watch be a good timekeeping instrument?"!
While the gentlemen of society were debating to know if wearers of mechanical wrist adornments should be kicked out of the Polo Club or sentenced to hard labor in a far off colony,Replica Vacheron Constantin Round watch brands were ablaze with creativity creating forms furthest away possible from the traditional round. Amongst the most interesting theories on the reason behind the tonneau, one states that it was a deliberate will to break with the round pocket watch and create a new form. Another theory is that since the top and bottom of the tonneau case was flat the strap would fit better and not rub against the case as could happen with the soldered lugs on the round pocket watch cases.
