Thank you all for your kind words.
I will post more pics when I have some time. Been working like crazy the past few weeks!
Glad to find a community of fellow VC admirers here.
Amongst my shortlist, alot of my friends kept saying I should have gotten the PP just because of the brand... I was initially more impressed with the PP 5127 and Breguet 5177 because of their more modern movements (free sprung, silicon, etc etc) and have no care for the PP brand (or Breguet's relative lack of brand image compared to PP).
But... in the end, the VC (and Lange Saxonia for that matter)'s traditional approach to the movement won me over as I prefer traditional watch making (that's why I chose the Traditionelle!) and VC's history and dial looks compared to the Saxonia which was also a beauty but a bit more "serious" to me. Lange though beautifully made (Saxon style) just does not have enough of the history (uninterrupted especially), which VC has. So whilst Brand recognition (PP vs VC) is not so important to me, brand history and ability to integrate tradition to modern watch making is very important to me and hence I chose the VC in the end.
The name "Patrimony" is also something I like alot. Patrimony to me means an inheritance of values, traditions, assets, etc from Father to son and suits me as I do intend to pass on my watches and my love of watches to my kids.
I love this watch from design, to movement, to brand history to even the name of the series!
