I'm looking for all VC watches with day/date functions. New models or vintage.
Not perpetual calendar, as I don't actually need that at all. I'd rather by a "normal" calendar and something else :)
I know of the new bi-retrograde, the 250th anniversary watch (too expensive), and the not-in-production-anymore 31-day retrograde. I don't like the toledo, doesn't fit my wrist at all when I tried it on.
I tried all four watches above, kind of liked the 31-day retrograde, but maybe it lacks a bit of ooumph! It doesn't have in my mind a "long lasting classical style thing". The 250th anniversary watch was wonderful, but too expensive. The new bi-retrograde was gigantic (way too big for my wrist) - but maybe it can work in a "Nico special edition" at 38 or 40mm, although I wasn't ultra fond of the retrograde days of the week (looks too much like an old elevator scale).
Are there any more out there? In vintage calibers?
I love the malte sword hands, guilloche dials, malte lugs, tear drop lugs, etc...
Believe it or not, I am very flexible.
