This wrist- and desk-watch was created according to a patent originally registered by Verger, Paris, who originally intended it for a pocket watch. Vacheron Constantin took the basic idea, adapted it to make it more modern, which resulted in a timepiece that is extremely practical, particularly for travellers.
