The watches' inner dial is inspired by a manometer gauge from one of the painstakingly restored engines run by the VVT train museum — Vapeur Val-de-Travers — of St-Sulpice Switzerland.
"On the Franco-Swiss Belvedere line, passing through the Areuse gorges to the shore of Lake Neuchâtel..." reads the introduction to the VVT train museum. It's an experience like no other. "a unique excursion, a moment of relaxation, a journey into a past not so distant but already forgotten."
For 30 years, the dedicated volunteers at the VVT train museum have brought steam back to the rails in St. Sulpice, Switzerland near the city of Neuchâtel. Over the course of their history, the team at VVT have restored 11 engines, which provide scenic excursions throughout region. VVT is a living museum and not just a static monument to steam locomotives. Every day work goes on maintaining and restoring beautiful examples of engines from throughout Europe. The volunteers at VVT "get their hands dirty" as they restore these amazing machines.
The largest and most imposing of these engines is a German behemoth that took 15 years of tireless work to restore. When VVT first acquired it, there was skepticism it could even brought back to life. The dedication and can-do spirit of the team at VVT prevailed and the engine is now the most powerful working steam locomotive in Europe.
