Very tasteful and classy. Would look right at home in a formal setting. Especially on the wrist of someone as dapper as you.
I keep being told by the NYC boutique...not here yet. Before I went on my cruise, they told me they'd have a sample I could come and see when I got back, but when I called them today, they told me, later this week. That's the one that my piggy bank awaits! ....of course in brown. I'm not a savage!
In a short blurb in Hodikee Louis Westphalen chose the Vacheron Constantin Overseas self-winding as the best everyday watch to come out of SIHH 2016, and that's exactly what I have in mind. With the three straps, it can go business, formal or summer (I'm beginning to appreciate the use of a rubber strap in the summer heat.) In one of the dumber evaluations I've ever seen (for any watch) to wit:
Case's architecture does not allow using NATO straps or other third party soft straps (Watch Enthusiast)In orther words; don't innovate. This same publication whines often and loudly about watches' lack of innovation. While I'm delighted to see the Watch Enthusiast's concern for third party sweatshops where knock-off NATO straps are produced, it reminds me of the ads I see for software developers: Wanted: PHP7 Developer wanted. Must have 5 years experience with PHP7. This ad when the version 7 of PHP has been available for only 1 year. By the way, the NYC Boutique did tell me that the new Overseas would be available in September, but they said they would have examples I could look at in July. Hope they do.
...boy, they look great. Can't wait until I can try one on. (I wonder how fast a boutique clerk can chase me....?)
