I work in a building with lotsa of Pateks and Langes and APs "walking" around, wearing this VC makes me feel like the underdog!!
i love the weight of the watch, the elegance of the design, though the dial can be a bit busy for a 38.5mm watch. i love that its a regulatuer, whilst not the most practical, its not the most frivolous as well. two time zone, second time zone displayed on 9o'clock sub dial by a 24hour hand, adjusted via a button at 11o'clock. date and second displayed by 6o'clock sub counter, date adjusted by pin hole @ 4o'clock. i generally do not like dials featuring roman AND arabic numerals, but VC pulled this one off. also love the swordblade hands. and i am a big fan of the crown with the Malte cross and the Malte series lugs.
its COSC certified, featuring VC Cal 1206 RDT auto movement with 28800vph. if i am not wrong, it is based on a Piguet ebauche 1150. power reserve is 65 hours.
being the anniversary edition, mine features a hunter caseback, and a unique grey dial. i have a soft spot for gray dials, but IMHO, patek slate grey ala 5056P is still the one to beat.
This has appeared in Puristspro late last year, when I first wrote it. Apols if you have read it before. Thats all I have for my first post, other then the initial intro thread.
