A couple of classics

Greetings Hour Loungers.  My first real post -- not quite a review, just a comment or two.

My new VC Patrimony and my trusty old HP15C -- a nice pair, I think. This is my first manual-wind watch, and I couldn't be happier with it. The 38mm case is a perfect fit -- the photo actually makes it look bigger on the wrist than it appears in reality. My feeling is that ~38mm will be the eventual equilibrium point for watches like this, following a decline from the current trend of larger cases... but who knows?

The accuracy is unbelievable. So far, I am seeing about +1 sec/day, averaged over several different overnight storage positions. Maybe a Chronometre Royale can wait ...

Please excuse the poor image quality, my photography skills are minimal.  -Phil
