he has on the left wrist! OMG! G
Agreed... I like so many of the Overseas versions

and as you know I am partial to blue accents. A complete dial of blue is like manna from heaven. Gorgeous watch. Gary ps what 'heritage' or relevance exists between VC and ships/ sailing and the like? Pardon my ignorance (generally... And also in this regard)
The Overseas heritage

Gary, the sailing vessel so artfully engraved on the back of the Overseas is the Italian ship "Amerigo Vespucci".  Vespucci was the first person to discover a new continent across the Atlantic...Columbus thought he'd sailed around the globe to China!  It was Vespucci's account that Mercator used to re-draw the map of the world to include a second supercontinent.  Amerigo's reward was to have the new continent named after him.  Cheers, Dean

Thanks Dean, what was VC's part in this or anything after, ship-related.. Cheers Gary
Well, the advertising schlock

Here is an advertisement from the Overseas introduction: Nothing there about the Amerigo Vespucci, but a theme of travelling Overseas from Europe to the Americas may have been part of the sales strategy.  I gather you are wondering if there was any historic linkage?  Just hyperbole, me thinks.  Still one of the nicest solid casebacks IMHO.  The Gen I rendition had a bit more fine detail plus the caseback was serated to match the bezel...something dropped from the Gen II.
And I missed the obvious Gary...

Land, Sea and Air! (And even Space!) watches. Enough toys for boys! Whatever their interests and activities. Seems to make good business sense. Gary

Gorgeous blue! Feels like over seas, with a moon phase :-)
A beautiful watch, Alex.

The shade of blue is wonderful. In looking at this close-up (I own the NY Boutique OS Chrono), I was struck by 2 things. The bezel reminds me of a ship's capstan and the month dial is very suggestive of an engine control device on a ship's bridge (see photo). Interesting...I don't know whether by design or coincidence.

interesting observation however purely coincidental

Thanks for posting it, Alex.  The blue dial also works great with a steel bracelet . . . Bob
