Introducing the American 1921 limited edition

The amazing and iconic American 1921 is being launched in a special edition of 12 pieces for Milanese retailer Pisa.

In this version the dial of each watch has a dark red numeral corresponding to its individual number (for example n°1 has a red 1, n° 2 a red two etc...) since there is no numeral 3 on the dial of the American 1921 the third watch of the limited edition has all red numerals!

example hereunder watch n°6

if you look closely you can see the name Pisa printed on the outer minutes section between 6 and 7

pink gold (nt)

i really like the italian little tweak to modern VCs.....
01/06/2011 - 14:57

subtly ... but nicely... the lucky 12 , especially the no. 3.  now, how to make enough for my whims and wishes !

Most appropriate that this is for the "Goomba" market...
01/06/2011 - 19:41
Even more so would be for the "Don" to wear #'s 1, 3 or 12! Good luck, Luca
01/06/2011 - 20:21
That's not really appropriate or, for that matter, accurate.  I assume you meant goombah, which is a perjorative slang word, derived from Neopolitan or Sicialian dialect, for someone of Italian descent.  Even if it were ok to use that kind of derogative slang in this forum (which, in my opinion it is not), it certainly would not apply to Milan.
Re: Goomba???
01/06/2011 - 22:48
At last the "old school" arrogance that had been missing from this "friendly" forum. Figures it would begin with a NUG!  I was going to add (sic) after Goomba, but IMHO that added to my twisted humor. However I wasn't aware of it's diolect. Nor was I aware that it is a derogative term. Born and raised as a "proud Italian" it was never used as any type of slur. Do you also regard Alex use of a scan of The Godfather for his avatar or he or I referring to me as "Luca" to be offensive? Consider reading some of my past posts to understand my humor, or my favorite saying, or referring to Alex as "The Don". At the end of the day I'm asking you to "lighten-up" and enjoy the diverse personalities that made this forum so pleasant. As Rodney King said:"Why can't we all be friends?" My sincere regards, Miki aka. Luca
Happy to hear you did not intend to offend

If you read some of my posts you will see that I also have a sense of humor, and I am not always PC, but ethnic slurs have the potential to offend, even when used innocently.  As for the NUG comment, well that would probably get you whacked in my neighborhood. Capisci?
Re: Happy to hear you did not intend to offend
01/07/2011 - 17:54
Thanx for your courteous response. Regardless of right or wrong I never used that term in an offensive manner, at least to my knowledge. After-all we can think of several that are offensive. Do you understand the term "NUG"? We used it to describe any "New Guy" during my 2 tours in Viet Nam with The 101st. Airborne.  Additionally I'm from Youngstown, Ohio and lived for 2 years in Manhattan while remodeling 157 apartment units on Clay Ave. in the Bronx.

I think it stands for New USELESS Guy I lived in Pittsburgh for seven years, so I know a little about Youngstown . . .  If you make it to NYC for the opening of the VC Boutique, maybe we can have a glass of Italian wine together.
A glass of wine together...absolutely!
01/07/2011 - 20:29

I never considered "useless" when referring to a NUG as you never knew who would or could save your ass, same here. Small world...I spent a lot of time in Pittsburgh visiting my Uncle Jo Jo Pecora. The pleasure would be all mine to meet you.

Michael, Sonny the drinks are on me :-)
01/07/2011 - 20:48
And that's why you're "The Don" ;-)
01/07/2011 - 21:18
LOL, Luca I thought...
01/07/2011 - 22:36
you were talking about the Super Mario character, Goomba  As penance for my ignorance, I listened to the Italian Hour on World Radio...and THEY played the Godfather theme
Haha, I thought the exact same thing! nt
01/10/2011 - 11:59
Should've been under Deans reply. nt

Excellent!  Looking forward to that.
This baby is just crying for....

a classic enamel dial
My mother always used to say:
01/07/2011 - 02:17
"there is nothing that doesn't dress well on a beautiful lady". In this case (!), I'm not sure. I definitely preferr the rosé gold. OTH the name suits the watch better than perhaps anyone had thought of, Pisa, I mean the watch has similarities with a certain tower... Doc

Now I am floored! I was thinking of how to personalize a possible 1921 and again Pisa(after the magnificent Lange datograph a few years back) and VC come out with this.....I am speechless in front of the all red........or maybe a red 12.... Alex,Help! Mo

Mo as an Italian you should get one of these :-)
01/07/2011 - 11:51
Very beautiful!!!
01/07/2011 - 10:45
Do you have a picture of number 12?  It must look stunning with the red 12 numeral on the dial... See you next week! Alberto
interesting version and funny
01/07/2011 - 15:23
thing to have choosen this model with a right turned dial and engraved it PISA (the slanting tower). Thanks for sharing Alexandre. Happy few owners (mostly italians I presume) who will wear one of these 12 models. Best regards, Liger
A nice tilt on the 1921
01/07/2011 - 16:36
I especially like how "pisa" is included in the minutes track -- so subtle and clever.   I am really glad VC decided to produce even this special edition in the rose gold.  It is the right metal for this watch.  I am not sure about the no. 3 with all red numerals, but any other number would be just fine. Mo, you gotta get one of these. Best, respo
Sobre and elegant watch.
01/07/2011 - 17:01

...for gentlemans.. Near Patrimony Extra Plates, is my favorite V-C watch model :)  I like it.

Pisa really knows how to make desirable watch !
01/07/2011 - 18:08
And too limited like the Datograph ! Lucky Owners :) Francois
Doc 'leans' towards the rose gold and keeps an eye on a beautiful lady
01/07/2011 - 18:56
I join Doc with a preference for rose gold and favour the response from Dean for a classic enamel dial. An intriguing project for Messrs Pisa. Well done VC. Tony

How about a Platinum version with an Enamel dial for general, although limited, consumption? Miki
Re: Introducing the American 1921 limited edition
01/08/2011 - 21:04
Interesting ideas! Bravo to VC and PISA , this is gonna be talk of SIHH 2011 ! Especially the No.3 piece !
01/09/2011 - 14:07
Speaking only for myself, I like this piece quite a bit.  The pink gold really works (at least as shown in these images) and the red numerals are a nice bit of whimsy. I also like the subtle way of including the retailer's name between 6 and 7 -- nicer than some of the Wempe watches of other manufacturers, e.g. Well done! Best, Gary
And for the Opening of the NYC Boutique . . .
01/09/2011 - 15:29
How about 12 Platinum Americans with a Blue Dial and each with a unique Red Numeral, or 12 in Rose Gold with a White Dial and each with unique Blue Numeral? 
That would be nice.....
01/10/2011 - 17:41
but I don't think your on the wright track when it come to what VC has planned for a US Boutique watch. Bill
Re: That would be nice.....
01/10/2011 - 19:34
You would certainly knpw better than I would.  It was just a suggestions, but I figured they would be working on something already .
Very nice
01/10/2011 - 11:58
Is it the same grade of rosegold as the previous released version? It's looks paler in the computer generated pictures than the original. I'm not too sure about all numerals being red on one of the ltd but I'm probably proven to be wrong if I saw it in the flesh. I also echo what was mentioned earlier by others, an enamel dial would be sweet!
yes its the same rose gold case as the regular 1921 (nt)
