Do you like modern pocket watches? Something not in my SIHH write up

Thought I will share with you the Patrimony Contemporaine in a 43mm rose gold case housing Cal 4400.

Originally launched in platinum in the Excellence Platinum collection (with sand blasted platinum dial) a few years ago in a limited edition, this rose gold version is part of regular production but made in vers few pieces each year

In my picture there is a gold chain which is an option, the watch will be delivered with a leather strap

Sure :) Leather strap is more in vogue.
It is a sharp item!

I think the leather strap is a good touch, and having a chain as an option. The watch is thin and easily slips into various types of pockets.  I thought about sneaking one out, but was reprimanded cheeky. I actually thought about sneaking several of the watches I saw out of the VC booth.devil  But I know I look terrible on Wanted, Dead or Alive" posters (just look at my driver's license)...so I left empty handed.  crying

IMHO and for a good read, the pocket size needs to be at last 44 mm diameter.
I love them...particularly this one

I am delighted that VC has a pocket watch in its current collection and even added a new version this year.  I am glad to read the watch is delivered with the leather strap...I was under the impression that it would be sold separately. I prefer the look of the leather v. the gold chain as it just seems to be more modern and suitable to our times.  The RG version is definitely warmer than the Excellence Platine version, but I think the EP version is pretty stunning.  Let's just say I have lusted after it since it was first announced.  In either case, the cal. 4400 looks amazing in the pocket watches.  Thank you for sharing this nice surprise with us.  Best, Robert
If I'm going to go old school and get a pocket watch...

I think I might want to have it with a solid case back engraved with my initials (being American I don't have a family crest...). Is that something that can be done, Alex? Bill
everything is possible but then you need to go to the bespoke dept :-)

I saw the platinum model in the NYC boutique several months ago but I think this works better in gold. I love it, especially with the strap. With the gold chain however it is really elegant and "old school." Would look great with a three piece suit. Regards, Dan
