I presented my VC for your view along with the reasons for it being one of the VC few to be considered for a "classic" denomination. You indicated that it was representative the Patrimony Contemporaine (PC) manual wind ... humma, humma humma.
I looked at the PC and determined that your determination that the model represents an equal to my VC: at least is parcity: at most is blindness. Of course, I do not question your "modern reintrepretaion of the typical design of VCs from the 50's" ... that's your and VC's "reintrepretation".
The PC is not anywhere near a recollection of my timepiece. A dolt could put the two side-by-side and determine that.
I'm glad that you deflected my inquiry regardong VC-issued COA with the caveat of the requirement of a Condition Report (CR) from the Auction House. Who issues such a report? Christie's and Southby's must have protocols for such? But, I understand the VC's HL cannot speak for them. One must got to the source for most accurate information. I will do so. It appears to me that VC ala HL has a problem their practices.
My friend, I have showed you my wears expecting earnest feedback. The site has been beneficial in learning about the cut-throat nature of the market. The thousands of hits you profess to the ca*** fellow, tells me that any one of the 30 or so die-hards can sway an auction regarding a VC timepiece (even from the most renoun Auction Houses!).
Alex. your cavalier treatment of me as a forum member saddens me. More so, it makes more likely than not to assume that VC aided Germany in 1937 in the development of Enigma.
Henceforth, I will be a "Lurker" --- just monitoring the site. Noting when the HL, as the "voice " of VC announces VC items for auction.
Too much time spent ...
You are the MAN, Alex
(But, I think that JohnLy needs to offer more oversight/direction, as you speak for VC. As the "gate-keeper" of the HL/VC - the "knee-jerk" posts of the die-hard need to be carefully considered before posting)
From the title post--- As my Mom used to tell me: Alex, You don't know s*** from shinola!
Thank you for your consideration,
