I love V-C, so I just bought a couple of V-C 1972 asymmetrics in white gold and yellow gold. Everything good, except that these are supposedly manual winding watches, yet on neither can I get the winder to work. This model (NOT the larger Prestige de la France) has a winder that is very close to the case, almost sunk into it. I can't turn either.
Yes I can pull out the winder and set the time, but I'm scared to force to winder. I have for now just been setting the time, and wearing them and they work for a while, but not long. I bought one from Italy and one from Po
