Better Photos of the VC47247

I finally got some time today to shoot some better photos of my latest VC.  I have not see a lot of good photos of this watch, so I have included a dozen shots in this post.  As Alex has mentioned previously, this was one of the first VCs with an open dial, and the finish of the dial side works are amazing.  Hope you enjoy these despite my meager photographic skills.

The case is pure VC, a 37mm round body with Malte stepped lugs, all in Pt950.

Very dramatic, I love the ones with the black background, with the watch 'coming out of the shadows' I should try that with my VCs... Thanks for sharing!
Well worth the time and effort...

...tried hard to get one of these and succeeded.  Alex might know more.
I had heard that it was a Central American president....

Not sure if a dictator or not, but certainly a watch out of line with his government salary (but when has a government salary ever stopped public leaders from getting nice things?). This could be the watch of choice for heads of state. :-) Bill
Oh, Oh!

Better be careful, Michael! I hear Venezuela is looking for a new Head of State, and you already have the watch as one of the most important criteria (LOL) Don't forget your Lounger buddies when your wining and dining in Caracas winkcoolcheeky Joseph (in a not so serious mood)
