Bill (WHL) posted an excellent suggestion at the Purists forum about VC making a version of the American 1921 for lefties..
Quest-ce que t'en pense?
- VC doesn't want to tinker too much with the Historiques models and considering the difficulty of delivering the current model I don't see them bringing out a new version (left hand, white metal etc...) any time sonn - Placing the crown on the left would mean having the subseconds dial somewhere around 2 o'clock, not sure if aesthetically that could work. Sorry for being the party pooper I love the idea but just can't see it happening
as a picture would make my intentions clear. If the crown is at 3 o'clock then the subseconds would be at 6, but the dial would still have the 45 degree rotation from a normal dial layout, only counterclockwise instead of clockwise as in the production 1921. The essence of the 1921 design to me is more about the tilt of the dial's layout rather than the crown's position. Bill
