But I've learned, the wife is never wrong!
I have a first gen. OS, and while I love it...the bracelet on the Gen. 2 version is much nicer. Besides possibly catching the hair on your wrist, the Gen. 1 bracelet can also "kink", mine does every once in awhile but is easy for me to unkink.
Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts!
Love the Gen 1, but the bracelet alone (in my opinion) makes the Gen 2 the choice, if the bracelet is the focus. I also agree on the white dial, because of the way VC have finished it. I love a dark dial, but these are so nicely done. I also happen to have a dual time version of the Gen 2 with that dial.
Thank you so much for your inputs! What a beautiful piece!!! Thanks for providing the wrist shot too!
personal choice would be the black dial as I don't like sports watches with white dials!
Good point and thank you very much for providing me with your opinion and thoughts
It took me a while to realize that the OS1 had white gold hour markers instead of stainless steel ones. However, I've always noticed that my hour markers shimmied like water on diamonds and wrongly assumed that it was highly polished stainless steel.
I have a black dial and lots of fur on my wrist; so the bracelet does not shave your arm. The OS1 (and probably the whole OS line) is versatile and can be worn with white tie or jeans. Here's mine:
Hairy wrist with Overseas 1
I've saved for one of the new Overseas with the 5100 movement, but they don't have the white gold hour markers. Still dithering on whether to get OS 4500 with a brown dial, the Quai de l'Ile (cream dial) or something else and keep my OS1.
Thank you very much for your inputs and reflections. I am very happy to hear that it does not shave the arm - regardless of my choice now, I want to have an OS1 in my collection one day - just because it is the original. Same goes for the 222 - I want one some day.
Love your point about the markers in white gold!
Nice wristshot an what a beatiful piece!
I will also start saving for the new OS but I fully understand your dilemma around QdL
Greetings Dalgaard and welcome,
I had the Chrono OS with a white dial but sold it and bought the USA edition with a black dial.
Better contrast with the metal bracelet.
Just my 2 cents
Thanks heaps for your inputs, JB!
But UJ ref 8 or 1140 could be great option too
Thank you very much for all your inputs! It was very helpful!
Bill, your post really made a big difference!
So I finally made up my mind and went for something slightly different - an OS1 with nice white dial! I hereby share a couple of wrist shots and one where I had fun fitting this beautiful creation on top of the original Overseas line ad - Time set free!
