    Holy Trinity of watches

    When I got the battery for my T-Race replaced, I commented on the "Holy Trinity" of watchmakers: PP, AP, and VC. However, my AD disagreed and said they were PP, AP, and Breguet.

    Who makes up the true trinity?

    Traditionally, it would be PP, AP, and VC, as you said.

    Fifty years ago I would have included Piaget.

    My understanding is PP, AP, and VC.

    I have heard people are trying to do 3P as Trinity. PP, AP, and Piaget.

    It's more like a battle royale when we discuss those three than any agreement on holy trinity.

    What other watches were sold at the AD? Or, what other ADs has that salesman worked at? They may have a reason for wanting to change up the trinity. Breguet has a history that stands up with the three, though it traditionally isn't counted in the trinity.
