We’ve all seen those commercials: “You’re not a doctor!” “No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.” Well I’ve never been deeper in water than the bottom of a swimming pool, but I have over 1000 posts on a watch forum.

If such a thing as an underdog could exist within the rarefied realm of the Big Three Swiss watchmakers, it would be Vacheron Constantin.
