Looking to join the family via Traditionnelle (RG Beige Boutique Dial)

Hello!

I've been drawn to the traditionnelle small seconds for some time now. The elegance of the dial/case combined with the robustness of the movement makes this watch my favorite hand-wound second-only watch. 

I prefer to RG because of its warmth and also because my collection consists only of white metals at the moment. I've seen a few variations of the RG dials, but there is one in particular that I would love to see a wrist shot of. It is the beige color dial - boutique only, reference 82172/000R-9412 (please see the attached photo)

If you own this version, would you mind sharing a few photos please? Do all boutiques have this?

Many thanks, and happy new year!

Peter

 

 

Hi Peter, the Traditionelle is an excellent piece and it is very fast becoming a

modern timeless Icon for VC, especially those looking for their first VC. I have one, the regular RG version.

Somehow, I did not quite like the Boutique only version with the cream dial. 

But, I did really like the Boutique only version in RG with Guilloche dial. I think this is slightly more expensive. You have to understand one thing - to do a Guilloche dial on this watch and actually make it work - is quite an achievement.

Whichever one you choose, you cannot go wrong. 

If I were buying this today, I would go for the Guilloche dial. And I also absilutely love the Italy boutique version; of which they only made 16. 

Alex, please share some pics so my post makes sense to Peter.

Thank you for the warm welcome, kk. I definitely need to go see the Guilloche dial in the flesh. There seems to be multiple versions of the Guilloche dial - the standard, the Tokyo boutique, Paris boutique, and from what I gather in your post kk, there is another Italian version. I hope to see as many as I can before making a purchase.

Thanks again!

I am not a huge fan of the Paris and Tokyo boutique versions; I love

the Italian boutique version, but with only 16 being made; it is a hard catch.

I am referring to the Guilloche edition available in most major VC boutiques worldwide. I really liked this. 

there have been different Guilloche versions: Tokyo, Paris and London as well as a

regular boutique version.

I think the Traditionnelle small seconds is a perfect classiical/dress watch, the non guilloche dial being a bit more subdued but it is all a matter of taste.

Welcome to the Lounge and keep us posted on your choice

I must say that I think the longer hour markers on the Paris version are a great improvement on the standard model.
