A farewell to VC...

Some time ago I decided to let go of this fine timepiece. Thanks to Alex, it soon found a new home in Paris. I will be passing the watch to Lin at SIHH for him to take it to its new owner. So it is here to stay with me for just a few more days...
Anyway, I have a weak spot for the watch since it was my first serious VC and it got me started in this endless fascination with VC.

You might also remember the funniest story about my hair-dresser's fake DTR and the real thing on my wristA farewell to VC...

As I relish the final moments spent with the watch please share in the joy of the pix!

Your thread's title sounded...

far more ominous... I am glad that it is just "a" VC and not the whole brand.  It is good that a fine watch can find a good home with another Lounger.  Congrats to Lin on the upcoming collection of his timepiece and for you Radek, what's next?  Cheers, Duncan
just done it on purpose, Duncan...

I would never ever leave my favorite brand just like that. All of my other VC watches are keepers... and just wait and see what's ahead Mr. "the" Tourbillon
Looking forward to seeing what's next for you Radek...

If there was a reason you can share, why did you chooseto remove this piece from your stable?  Change of focus or something else replacing it? 
Yes Radek, why?
