could you help me in letting me know what is the VC reference 31556 / 206J-3 ?
Many thanks in advance,
Well I am going to stick my neck out on the line here. As a community we have decided that jewelry watches are not worthy of the same appreciation as complicated or even simple watches. Why is this? Is it because they drain our resources for more worthy watches? Is it because they represent a sheer grab for money by the manufacturer? Is the art of manufacturing such a watch "less" than producing a complicated watch? Is it because they are too emasculating? Reviewing the watch that Alex has shown, it is slim and has a simple dial with diamond markers. I could do without the encrusted bezel but the wonderful heavy linen texture bracelet is what really makes this watch. I do hope it has a nice 1003 movement inside. This is certainly not a blinged out President, which represents gaudy excess to me. I see a beautiful, tasteful dress watch, which would be prefect with a Tuxedo. I have been reading the History of V&C, 250 years and the thing that I note is that when times are tough it is the jewelry aspect of the business, which gets the company through. I feel this aspect of watch manufacturing is as important as the manufacture of minute repeaters and perpetual calendars. If it were not for this I suspect the company would not be around today. They also represent a good value in the secondary market. Often they sell for such a fraction of their initial MSRP that they are worth more melted down than intact. So they may not be your or my taste but let those who enjoy them buy them and support the company, which does make minute repeaters, chronographs and perpetual calendars. Just my $.02 Canadian.
