Lovely, thank you so much for these goodies. I got a whole new look on my laptop now! :)

It's called...

a Skåneland Griffin. It's basically a symbol for Scania, the southernmost region in Sweden. It's been used since the Vikings and early middleages as it was first discovered on a runic monument found in "Tullestad".

It has alot in common with the fabled creature called "Panther" in heraldic terminology. Nowadays there are a handful of variations, but the Scanian griffin is unique.

Nowadays it is regarded as a symbol for culturally and historically aware Scanians.

Below is an old version of it.

So for how long have you been a fan of VC?

Thanks Veillotron

I'm only 24 years old and have had an interest in watches since I turned 18. The first time I got my eyes on a V&C was during a trip to Milan in 2003. I wasn't very familiar with the brand back then but absolutely loved the ones I saw at an AD. I got my first, and so far only, V&C back in 2005 during a vacation in Hong Kong, an Overseas Chronograph with white dial. Hopefully I will be able to expand my collection with a few more V&C's soon!

Here's a picture of my Overseas. it's not the best photo, I know.

You've walked a dangerous path my friend! Once you

learn a lot from the moderator and the learned loungers here like i do. the downside is  u probably have a little less sleeping time. :)

well... one VC is never enough, but it is too

Just owning one VC is a privilege. So having several becomes an obsession (ask doc and others).

Even with just one you are part of the club!! Enjoy and may the auctions be good to you!

It's a beautiful piece!

It is one of my favorite sports watch, and not just because it's VC!

I really like everything on the dial: the finish, the hour markers, the size and positioning of the sub-dials...

More than once I almost bought one... It's a great way to start of VC collection!
