I just felt 'Espaol' appropriate for the occasion...

I picked up Spanish last year and to my surprise I have done considerably well so far. My classes this year haven't started yet as the building of Instituto de Cervantes de Varsovia has been under construction and they have had some delays... Typical Polish and Spanish They're due to begin November 2nd. BTW, hab' ich schon gesagt ich kann auch Deutsch sprechen??? And to think I'm no MI-6 like 007
this vicious program just ate my Spanish n in "Espanol", go figure..

Impressive!

Thanks Alex Finish, complication, everything is impressive in this piece. I admire the work, this amazing caliber, it's fantastic... but it doesn't touch my heart like an american 1921 or to compare complication : the mindblowers Cabinotiers Répétition des minutes and Répétition des Minute perpetual calendar. Maybe not so impressive, but with their size, they are so wearable and so much more charming, it make your heart beat faster. The Quai de l'île shook me also but not the 2755 even as impressive as it can be. My 2 cents
I see what you mean, its rather austere and technical looking?

More or less, it is completely subjective and personnal.

This Vacheron is not to criticize objectively, it's just a matter of personnal taste.  First big classical watch are normally not my taste, secondly I am sensitive to subjectivity. This is just the way a watch "speaks to me" or not. It can be modern or classical, big or small, the question is "what dream do I see here"? It's Proust Madeleine. The american 1921 speaks by itself and by her title, you play the role of Great Gatsby  . The Quai de l'île is a space ship or a machine from the future , just perfect for Virgil of the Thunderbirds  . For the Cabinotiers it is not directly obvious but something speak to my mind, so much class in these watches. The unique Philosophy is also making me dream, because there is something more than, aesthetic, finish and complications. Here... hmmm welll, it is beautiful, the Patrimony design is good, the dial looks great, caliber is a fantastic piece of art , and so are the complications. But which bell in my mind does it ring? For me nothing, for others maybe.  I remember the 2755 I tried. Same impression, impressive but not the subjective thing that changes a very good watch into a heartbreaker where you cannot think. I think a watch should be marketed to the developpment before being conceived.  Some people react like me, see the success of vintage Rolex, Panerai or reedition. They are miles away from the finish of Vacheron but they make people dream. But some other reacts differently and the different collections of Patrimony, Métiers d'Art or Historiques are reflecting this.
