First Vacheron

Fed-ex just delivered my first Vacheron, an Overseas 47040 with a white face. I have been "lurking" around the forum for about a year and chose Vacheron over other watches based a good deal on what I learned here. 



Congratulations ray and welcome to the Lounge! Please

Excuse the poor photography and thanks for the well wishes.

I had my choice down to three watches, knowing which one I really wanted, for an upcoming significant birthday. I wanted a casual watch to wear everyday somewhat larger than the current 36mm daily wearer. I fell in love with the bracelet and the look of the watch on my wrist. Being the crafty fellow I am, I took my wife with me to look at all three and she agreed that this was the one.



your wife has good taste too :-) thanks for the scan (nt)

Wear it in good health...

I feel the same as you do about the bracelet... how can one not fall in love with it?

Good choice... Ray
