Another good sign for VC!
Congratulations to VC !
I would like the same model in 38 mm !
but when I saw this watch, very early, together with Alex, we were both,
I dare to say that now Alex, quite cold to it, or was it just I ?
Of course we both love retrograde watches, and both of us have actively searched for a 247
I reacted on the letters of the weekdays especially, and overall it was a bit crowded.
It still is, to be honest, but slowly it's growing on me!!
And for me, it always is like that, the more sceptic I am at first glimpse,
the greater the chance is that I will fall for it after some years.
I had the same feelings for my DTR, that I now really like, otherwise I would have get rid of it long ago,
This is my car since nearly 4 years (!), I thought it was just too ugly,
when I saw one the first time, and now I love it !
The same goes for music, art some authors etc etc...
Are there anymore who reacts like me,
or is there something wrong with me
Doc, funny you should mention this, I liked the Bi-retro when I first saw it, but now after more consideration I would miss the lack of a sweep second hand, also I hadn't noticed the days have different fonts. So now I'm not 100% sold. As for the Porsche's I like the classic 911 body style up untill about 1989, though the ones after 2005 look like they're going back to that look a little.
it's Audi TT, called ABT DTM edition
Before I actually had a 911 from 1976 for 12 years,
but like you, I don't get hesitated on the new one's either!
For watches, it happens from time to time, and I hesitate sometimes too much that opportunities are going off to me.
For the Audi TT, I was a bit doubtful at first glance, but after seeing some, and trying one during an afternoon, I must say it is worth to drive it.
I am discussing about the last version of the TT, a friend of mine has.
Anyway, I am more looking at Porsche 911, with air cool system.
But this is another story.
I didn't like the Bi-Retrograde when I saw it the 1st time, now it's getting better & better
The size I think is perfect at 42mm since it's got complications & quite thick (?), I wish however my simple Patrimony were 38-39mm top.
Very particular dial: composition of calendar initially seems puzzled, but after taking a second look it's linear, simple.
I'm very happy that a maison as Vacheron "risks" with something "strange", unusual. Other prestigeous maisons don't make this!
Okay, I think the day-of-the-week display could use some work but other than that, I am very fond of its aesthetics.
It even wears much smaller than its actual size and I would love to get one. Alas, it is just too much for my smallish wrist and my even less endowed wallet. If it were 40mm I would gladly trade in my PP annual calendar and Overseas or Toledo for one.
I am not especially small, quite normal, 176 cm tall, and have thin-normal wrists,
and for me the ordinary Patrimony Contemporaine is to big(40 mm).
I just love it, but it looks to big.
Absolute maximum is the DTR and it's only 38,5 mm !
Of course I had the JLC compressor, but it is sold,
because it looked like the watch was going with me!
The Girard-Perregaux ww.tc is allso to big,
but is the only worldtimeer wort it's name,
and you don't use it as a every day watch,
like the DTR.
So this, my dear Kazumi is not for us
Lucky we are that there are lot of others,
I also believe that in some years the watches will be smaller,
I only hope VC will be first to break this giant trend, that we suffer from !
Why do you think VC's new inhouse movements are so small
The first time I saw it, when it just came out, I thought it was just too big for me, and found it a bit strange....
Then I have to say I grew to really liking it. I saw it again a few months ago, tried it on again, and this time, I didn't think it was too big at all. I also have a small wrist and 42mm is really the limit for me. Now, this is one of my favorite watches.
Just wait a little bit, and I still need to see if the dial can be found in French ratehr than English...
I just hope the success of the watch doesn't mean they will up the prices....
This watch totally deserves this price and if I well remember, this watch is a price winner ... like VC ad
