Congratulations on your Jubilee 1755!! Definitely one of my top 5 VCs!!

How long ago did you get it, and how much wrist time is it getting?

Wear it in good health!

Thanks! Wrist time wise not as much as my other VCs. Not that I neglect it - it's just so precious to me

Congratulations on your 1755 Jubile Platinum. We need to see some dial shots. This is an excellent example of a "special occasion" watch. You need to wear it more often.


Congratulations and keep them coming!!

One gets so engrossed here in the Lounge that it is easy to forget or lose track of how many posts one has made.  I would have wanted to make a similar post during mine, but I completely lost track!  Hahaha.  Oh well, there is always the next milestone number.

Congratulations on the Jubilee.  It is my favorite watch too (mine is in RG).  A special edition watch for those special occasions... Although in my case, I like it so much that I wear it quite regularly (about twice a week during the cool months).

I hope you have many, many special occasion come your way so that you can wear your special watch more often!!



250 posts dedicated to perfection :-) Its great to have you with

Jubilee 1755 is one of the greatest VC creations. Design and finish wise as well as technically it is hard to beat (hallmark of Geneva on dial). It is the finest example of what  I like to call 'sophisticated finesse of haute horology' by VC.

It wears great with its 40mm diameter and gives a feeling of completeness to your wrist ;-)

Thank you all for all your kind words. 

All I can say is wow, Congratulations yet again! nt

NNIIIIICCCCEEEE! How about a close up of the dial? I love the
02/22/2008 - 11:31

greyish sheen of the platinum dial. Supposedly it was hell to guilloche and the tip of the cutting tool needed to be changed for each dial because it kept wearing out!!

I couldn't agree more, it's a classic watch. The strap looks like its unworn...definately needs more wrist time.

Wear it in good health.

Well Radek,

You have great taste, there's no question.

A real beauty.

Wear it in good health.


I hope to get the same gift for my 250th post

Congrats Radek!
02/22/2008 - 17:21

Hope you will keep posting on the HL :)

Congratulations Radek, absolutely stunning!

A close up of the dial and of the movement would be much appreciated. Once again, congrats!
