Another one of my silly iPhone shots. The director Michael Mann

wore this very same watch to the Rolls Royce Vacheron dinner in Carmel over the weekend. What an evening! This is truly one of my favorite watches of all time. Just love it! I enjoyed seeing many Hour Loungers at the dinner. What a great group of friends! My best to all! Eddy Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos PS I do not know how to put the little camera symbol next to my posts which include a photo. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
Sonny Crocket in Mann's version of Miami Vice wore this watch:-) you

I agree. It does! The Malte case, especially the lugs are an inspired design, harking back to the Art Deco period. It's not so bad in the tonneau case, either! Personally I find this design one of Vacheron's best. I think the recent remake of the malte with hardly any flare or depth to the lugs is not as pleasing. But the Chrono Perpetual with its Malte case and half-hunter back, not to mention what VC did with the movement is a real highlight of their art and craft. It's no wonder people love this watch. However, a highlight of the watch is the engraved moon face, one of the nicest ever produced by any watchmaker! It really is captivating. Here's a close-up (I'm ready Mr. DeMille! wink)
a bespoke engraving like this one?

Yes, Alex, exactly what I was thinking (LOL) But only if you can get that left eye to move around!
You could call it the Georges Melies watch

I'm a big fan of Michael Mann, not only does he make great movies, he apparently has great taste in watches. yes Seeing Sonny Crockett wear that watch would be enough reason to revisit Miami Vice.
