yes this is very watch !!! and the promise made to Mats (doc). :) this is the watch only meant for personal use and collection.
it all started with an opinion sought of an vintage V&C, and ended with a beautiful watch and a second V&C, and now a rekindled interest in a VC collection. i am grateful to mats for his grace of handing over this rare piece for my care at at a more than reasonable price.
the review will be short, with my baby girl tugging my shorts and asking for attention.
the watch originates 1936, with a tri-bridge formed movement. the case fluted and well-maintained for its age, its curviness truly tells art-decor and workmanship. its comes with a no-frill quick-change for strap lugs, strap change is done by pushing the leather a little to put in the strap, however, as the strap only hangs on little pin attached to the lugs, one must be careful when wearing. nevertheless an interesting feature i have never come across. let the pics do the talk...
it few more pics to share my contentment of a beautiful acqusition..
now this is what impresses me at first sight .... amazingly, it was the strap that catches my attention, notice the print, the font,
the strap holder, the shape of the tail. nothing i have seen before.
now i have 2 V&Cs
finally a shot on the wrist ...
what i really want to say is, thus far, this is the most enjoyable time of the watch hobby. more than the collection, it
is the friends u make along the way, and especially with VC, i have made the most, namely alex, doc, vilit, kh tan and jiaxian.
thank u guys for yr opinions and the email exchanges as well as sharing some aspects of life.
i await with much anticipation of my next watch with the rekindled passion for VC and making friends along the journey.
