The Overseas goes overseas!

My Overseas NYC LE paid a visit to Paris last week, along with 2 of its mates. They all had a great time! (LOL)

Sometimes when the sites are a bit more formal, a more formal watch is required..Place de l'Opera and the Malte QP Chrono

Some photos are better in monochrome, but others really require colour...voila

This last photo, some will recognize... I am wearing my Overseas. But how the Musée Jacquimart-André found this portrait, I'll never know!!
Just kidding... there was a little "set-up" in the museum where you could pose dehind a wall with a cut-out and frame coolsmiley

Please enjoy few samples of my visit to the City of Lights

Looks like a fun trip, Joseph!

You mentioned that the Overseas US Edition took along "two of its mates," but aside from the Malte QP Chronograph, where is the other?  I have been studying the photos like a game of Where's Waldo.  ;-) These are some amazing photos.  I love the self-portrait of the famous Canadian.  I will look for it at the Musée Jacquimart-André the next time I am in Paris.  I love his work.  wink Do you think the Overseas US makes for a good travel companion?  I have just started using it as such and I am loving it.  The Dual-Time Overseas would, of course, make the most sense, and even the Overseas Automatic, as Sebs has shown us, makes for a fine travel watch.  But I have the Chronograph, and I think the Overseas in any configuration lives up to its name. Thanks for taking us along on your Parisian tour.  Best regards, Robert
Hi Robert,

The trip although brief was great. Got together with some Loungers as well. Waldo, my Atelier Cabinotier was mainly in the safe at the hotel. I just wore it once at dinner, but no photo. I did debate about whether to bring my tonneau dual time, but the bracelet on the OS especially in the heat, was very comfortable. The QP Chrono pics were in the evening when it was a bit cooler. Best, Joseph
Joseph didn't know you had such photo talents! Love the last one :-)

Love the portrait, Joseph!

Shows you have a distance towards yourself. Something I've been trying to achieve for quite a while... Looks like a fun visit. Best always, Radek

Thanks my friend, It was a great visit. The "portrait" was fun. Best, Joseph
Good times....

The weather was great Bill, about 26-28 Celsius. I did miss the heat wave at home too :-) Regards, Joseph
Great trip in Paris, Joseph

You know some good place to visit. Congratulation for the "official " portrait. It will take a nice place within your family portrait collection. Cheers, Liger
Merci Liger!

After many trips I know the city a little bit, but there is always more to discover. On the recommendation of a friend who lives in the 16e, we took the #52 bus back to the Place Madelaine. It was much more interesting than the Metro; almost a grand tour through very nice residential and shopping areas, past the Place Trocadero, Etoile and finally along the Faubourg St. Honoré. Very nice bus ride! Regards, Joseph
JB, excellent photos. Sometimes it is more fun to,,,

take photos of randome people and scenery rather than one's own family and self !  Paris is a lovely city. Would love to visit again and enjoy it with my Traditionelle.  Also, love your Malte QP Chrono. This was one of the first VC's which got me hooked onto the maison, and remains one of my all time favourite VC's.  If I am correct, it has an officer caseback right? Some of my favourite VC's of all time do not have the Geneva Seal; this one, the original Malte Tourbillon in PG, and Skeleton Minute Repeater. More on all this later, otherwise I will deviate from post. 
You are quite correct!
07/23/2013 - 22:06
The QP does have an officer case which opens to display that wonderful Lemania/VC movement. And of course there is that beautiful engraved moon face. Best, Joseph
Joseph get's framed in Paris!...

Joseph, it was a great delight reading the report concerning your visit to the VC Boutique. Hospitality of this nature is a great strength for the brand particularly when it stretches around the globe uninhibited. Although your visit was restricted to four days one would never know that was the case with so much to show for it.  Your travels produced some good photographs with an eye-catching menu of watches.  Beautiful weather, meeting nice people and having fun is a formular for success. I think you achieved that in abundance!! Welcome back, we missed you! Warm regards, Tony

Thank you Tony! As usual, you are too kind. But you are quite right about the formula for an enjoyable trip. Fortunately I don't suffer very much from jet lag and hit the ground running. The VC boutique is very well known for their hospitality. Warm regards, Joseph
C'est Magnifique! A Masterpiece! nt

Great pictures! and Watches!

Fantastic shots Joseph and I love the way you waive the various photos of places, people, food and watches and of course, the last picture is a masterpiece. Thanks for sharing them. Love your Malte QP chrono! cheers robin wong
Thank you so much JR for your kind words
07/24/2013 - 16:43
A "Masterpiece"?? I will tell my wife who took the photo (LOL) Best, Joseph
Great post JB!

The last photo is really cool, and a lot of the other shots are very 'artsy'. My dear friend, my turn to complement you on your dress sense - I love the pnik/lilac shirt, the colour complements very well your beautiful Malte QP.  Love even more the watchheart  - I much prefer the square pushers and the straighter lugs on yours... As for the OS, you have one of my favourite models. As much as I love the Deep Stream, the US and Pisa limited editions remain my favourite. I have never seen the Pisa in the metal, but I vividly remember falling in love with the dial of the US OS, when Alex showed me his OS a few years back. Cheers,  Francois
Merci, Francois

Thank you for your kind words. I have loved that watch from the first time I saw it..the moon faces, the dial, the Malte lugs, the officer case and the movement. What VC did with that Lemania movement is far and away superior to anything PP has done with it. Thanks for noticing the shirt! It's from Bruce Field in Paris. They have it in several colours but that one is my favourite. Very well made in France (and now on sale!) LOL Warm regard, Joseph
