I just can't stand the power reserve
Otherwise I would have got one.
The movement is so stunning
it's 34 mm, but looks bigger because the bezel is so special.
Since the lugs are just 2 mm longer it gives a more big look at the wrist.
Looks like a 36 mm watch.
I never seen one like this
if Alex wants to loan me that Jubile rose gold I would put that one on in a New York minute.
So of course I had a really nice vintage Vacheron on, and had to run around trying to not to get it wet.
So today I wore a Seamaster, and the sun comes out! Isn't it always the way?
Its the Toledo for me today (after much effort to advance the day-of-the-week display). Even though I have to work tomorrow, its still good to know that we are almost through with the week. Nice watch, Doc.
You don't see much of those anymore, and it takes a connoisseur to appreciate such subtle details as the working on the bezel. The movement is also a class act.
Alex, you know I love that watch!
Come to think of it, aside from both having the RG Jubilee, you also had a WG Toledo. And now, chances are I might even acquire a boutique edition Contemporaine just like yours. I can't really say I have good taste in most things, but in this case, I am just glad to know that I am in good company.
TGIF (a vintage expression)!!
One of the best retro V&C ever made.
BTW, it was Proellochs favourite In WG :-)
Thanks for pointing that out. I hope that such effect was by design. Otherwise we are giving credit for something only our VC-biased eyesight can see.
The Toledo Day
Can't see enough of it.
Have you seen the stupid DVD inside the book followed "Secrets of Vacheron Constantin" ?
The guy with the vintage one, that was fooled by VC and got a Toledo instead
Alex and I thought it was that years funniest "movie" !
Have I seen the stupid DVD?
Doc, that stupid DVD was the biggest influence for me to buy the Toledo!!
After buying my Jubile 1755, my AD gave me a copy of "Secrets". Actually, it was not after a long while that I realized there was something in the back cover...Yes, I had missed the DVD completely. Anyway, I was thrilled at my discovery and was completely immersed in the VC marketing material.
Needless to say, I fell in love with the Toledo and replayed the scenes with it over and over till my wife relented on letting me buy it (for the sake of her sanity she says! "as long as I don't hear that "#$%&'" background music again!").
So, I don't know how many people VC will be able to brainwash into trading-in their valuable vintage heirlooms, but I sure know they convinced me into getting the Toledo! Yes, marketing does pay off it seems.
Hope this made you smile!

Wow, What a dummy I am!!
I didn't even know there was a DVD!
The English version I have definitely does not have one. I got that copy very soon after the book was released.
However, I also have a French copy which I now and just had a look at the back cover...and there's the DVD.
Thank you all for pointing this out. I don't think I ever would have found it except by accident.
lying on the floor, when you see how VC fools him in the end!
The film was excellent except for the ending.
Doc, it made me cry!
That little PR effort surely can't be aimed at watch aficianados??
Perhaps they must have given him a tourbillon as well.
His father must be turning in his grave!
Not today, but Saturday night to celebrate the end of Lent.
Another safe Queen, but one's on the way for Doc. Best, Miki
but I if anyon e, think I'll have an rough idea,
how it will look
Nice Lange, that is!
