How did you come by such a nice & unexpected find at the funeral?
1972 LE model - cool content/subject in the little VC box (coffin)
AS YOU MIGHT HAVE GUESSED: LUCA MADE AN OFFER THAT COULDN'T BE REFUSED!
but don't bury it!!!
First of all, congratulations on your acquisition, and thanks for sharing.
Its the first time for me to see the box, and you are right about the coffin!! The construction of the lugs are also very interesting but unfortunately I have never had the chance to handle one in person. Anyway, that is a really gorgeous piece (that seems to get prettier every time I see it).
I know of one other mafioso (a heavyweight in this neighborhood) who has that watch. Did you by chance get it from him?
Wear it in the best of health.
All the best!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, THE DON, STILL HAS HIS.
ready to spring out of his coffin and suck all your watch budget out of you
Wear it in best of health.
less blurry scans?
AS YOU MAY IMAGINE, LUCA WAS IN A HURRY WHEN HE TOOK THIS ONE.
WHEN MICKEY HAS IT ON , I'LL SEE IF I CAN"T TAKE A BETTER SCAN.
I saw this beautiful watch and thought it was just my glasses, so I put my reading glasses on ...and it was worse!
Congrats Miki, wear it in good health,
and don't forget to turn off the "caps lock"
Congrats on your new purchase!
Yes I'm back, alive and well... I just got swallowed up by work for the last 2 months - all-nighters after all-nighters, I didn't even had time to call my own mother...
It's good to be back!
