I think I found my watch

I was drawn to the overseas and then decided that it was to big for my skinny wrist. I convinced myself I wanted an older Royal Oak. The 36mm version seemed to fit the bill. However when comparedto the original Jumbo RO it just didn't look that resolved.
THen I saw a  42050/423A-8 for sale. .I have an offer in. wish me luck!
Good luck Robert, a really

I dithered.. I debated.. I lost it. Oh well, At least I know what I am looking for now. I suppose if am prepared to put the money on the table that is pretty conclusive that I have made a choice. Now, if only I wern't  so tight:)
that sucks but there will be a next time ;-)

I have really learnt to be patient. since I have collected vintage Universal Geneve Polerouters for a few years now. A sports watch in the old style, so many are seriously worn out, loved to death and badly repaired. When you find one that is close to mint there is "something" about them which is hard to describe. An undefinable rightness. Of course, there is another manufacturer that manages this with an almost  impossible lightness of touch. The skills become invisible and the watch becomes Art perhaps especially, in its simplest form. I don't think any other manufacturer achieves this to quiet the same degree.  That is why I want a Vacheron.
You are so right, Robert! Hope your new old Overseas comes your way...
