Speaking about the novelties, please find below a few pics of the American 1921 I had the chance to see a few weeks ago. Thanks a lot to Alex who gave me this opportunity !
I would not add any long comments after Alex and Kari's ones... except that I really love this watch.
The finishings are superb (the dial and the case are stunning) and on the wrist, its elegant style seduced me at once.
The only points which didn't convince me were:
- it's quite difficult at the beginning to wind the watch due to the crown position. But once you are used to it, it's ok.
- the small second subdial is not oriented like the dial (the 30-60 axis is not parallel to the 6-12 axis). I didn't understand why Vacheron took this decision because the original watch didn't have this difference
- the design of the caliber is maybe a bit too "modern" for my eyes in the context of the watch.
But at the end, it's a great achievement from Vacheron... I love it !
So enough bla-bla, here are the pics:
