Hello Fellow Loungers!
I have just bought an Overseas Dual Time with a black patterned dial. It is also my first VC. The watch suits my needs perfectly, although I might have preferred a window for the date (like the chronograph model), rather than a rotating hand pointing to a number - it can sometimes be difficult to read when one of the hands obscures the small digits. The power reserve feature is great, but aesthetically, there is a lot of empty space in that section. Apart from these thoughts, the watch is a joy to wear. I particularly like the smooth winding movement as I swing the watch past my ear. That sound alone is very satisfying. As others have mentioned, the dial is particularly delightful to view and admire.
I have a few questions if anyone could be so kind as to assist me:
There is "PBLF" engraved on two parts of the bracelet. There is also "3004" on the deployment, and "B01A". What do these indicate?
How many of each type of Overseas watch are produced each year?
Look forward to your answers and comments! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
