2nd Overseas

I picked up a VC Overseas from a fellow watch nut, I now have 2 overseas. I also have a AP 15300 black dial. I now realize that while the AP is nice and was my attempt to have one each of the "Big 3", I like the Overseas better. Would acquiring an Overseas date to complete the "set" iyho be better than just keeping the AP? I know the decsion is mine.
I like the AP RG 15300 on strap also, so maybe that would be a "good AP" to have for my set, as it doesn't directly "compete" with Overseas on bracelet. That VC Bi-retrograde is very nice also (maybe my 4th VC at some point).  Your opinion is welcome and appreciated!

First of all, congratulations on your third OS and thanks for sharing pics.  They really look great (despite the photography...just kidding).

As to your dilemna, I would probably keep the AP (as you already have it) because it is a good watch to have (the RO being the original luxury sports watch) and getting a third OS might overdo it.  I know you like the OS better so think of the RO as a pickle which goes with a hamburger.  It is a good change of pace from everyday OS use (especially one with a strap - although I love the iconic design of the RO bracelet).  Of course, if the OS fits better (I think it does) and if you like it, you can always go for an all OS line up.

Speaking of the Bi-retrograde, now that's a beauty I would love to have (unfortunately, there's not enough parking space for it on my wrist).  I have seen it and although it is a big watch for sure, it certainly wears much smaller and sits very nicely on the wrist.

Do let us know your decision.  Best, Kazumi

For the time being the AP stays,  it fills its intended purpose well and was a "best buy" so to speak.

I really love that RG dual time but the chrono complements it well. As

for getting a time only OS why not keep your AP for the time being as you may get some kind of OS overkill :-)

The Bi retrograde is a fascinating watch, its big but with its short lugs and case form looks smaller on the wrist, I would definately go for that one!

Thanks for sharing

soon young Jedi soon.... :-) (nt)
