Greetings Vacheronistas!!! What new Vacheron novelties . . .

are you so interested in that you are considering purchasing? Just curiosity on my part. There are some beauties but the prices are such that they may be out of reach for us:( 

I do believe, however, that the availabilty will improve in the US as distribution improves to this market because sadly, the European economy is suffering.  That is a shame and definitely not a good reason for the increase in US allocation.  I have seen this occur with other brands, in particular, Patek Philippe.

Hope you are all well and happy and enjoying fall.

Not sure if it's a "novelty" or not but I just ordered the book Secrets of Vacheron Constantin - not too hard to get within the USA on Amazon etc.. but I've had all kinds of trouble getting one to Australia.  
The blue diald Overseas and the new 41mm Patrimony Traditionnelle have

gotten me thinking....wink
I'm with you on these two, Alex

and these are the two best "affordable" novelties from 2012. The unattainalbe watches that I like are the Fish and the Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon. Bill
the OS with blue dial is reminiscent of

your all-time favourite (and first) VC, no?smiley
Very much so!!

I was planning on adding an Overseas Chronograph to the collection once I sell my QDI, but am wavering between the SS/Ti and the blue dial. Bill

For my taste the SS/Ti is much nicer and I think more flexible in terms of where you might wear it. My SS/Ti Overseas Dual Time is due to arrive Monday or Tuesday smiley

"Hope you are all well and happy and enjoying fall."  LOL, is that a reference to the Live Jump thread Eddy? devil If I close my eyes and imagine a non-& VC, this appears:
I'm a man of simple taste Eddy...
10/19/2012 - 00:10 the top of my list, a simple Patrimony Contemporaine, or an OS Chrono. Re the OS, I keep going back between the stamped guilloche dial and the Ti/SS version. Stand-alone I think that I prefer the Ti/SS, but with my 47212 and the QdI Tantalum, that would start to be a lot of grey... I'd take any available (JB, if I had the funds, I would have gone for your white OS...) . My favourite OS remains the Pisa version - what a beauty - although being realistic I think that this one would be hard to get: A bit more expensive, but oh so delicious, the American 1921heart... 
+1 on the Pisa
10/19/2012 - 01:46
Someone picked one up from an American dealer recently...are they here?
10/19/2012 - 11:18
well Alex, which one is it?
10/19/2012 - 14:08
if you had to choose - the new blue OS or the Pisa?cool
I would go for the Pisa but thechnically it is not
10/19/2012 - 16:32
one of the 2012 noveities cheeky
So you're telling me I didn't read properly the question?
10/19/2012 - 16:44
Would someone please enlighten me on what the Pisa is? I am an
10/20/2012 - 01:40
ignorant fellow and the only Pisa I know of has a severe leaning problem! Ahaha! Enjoy your weekend everyone. Best, eddy
This should help, :-)

Hi Ed, Pisa is a retailer in Italy that occassionally asks for special editions, usually done very tastefully! This link should help: BR, Dan
Most VCs that I like are out of my reach :(
10/19/2012 - 07:36
Maybe the "cheapest" being Patrimony Traditionelle chronograph in white or rose indecision  Not to mention the perpetual calendar skeleton, etc. Whew...  Don't really fancy the Overseas so I will have to stick with my only VC now, patrimony contemporaine yes
Although not the newest novelty
10/19/2012 - 20:48
The one I would consider buying the most is the NY Edition of the 1921 I'm glad to see more availabilty in the U.S., though unfortunate that it comes at the expense of Europe.  Availabilty may be better, but unfortunately prices have not come down (or have they?  I don't keep track). BR, Dan
Well, not technically a novelty anymore...
10/19/2012 - 23:37
...but of the current production, the one on the left below is keeping me up at night: (Photo courtesy of Bill, aka WHL) Somehow I need to get a cal. 1400 into my collection, and I like the pakaging of either of the watches above -- or perhaps the Aronde 1954.  But I think I need something more, well, contemporary in my Historiques-heavy collection.  That said, I am not yet over the Historiques 1968, again, not exactly a novelty anymore.  I really do have a thing for VC's time-only watches, don't I? Best, Robert
