... and making me feel at home here.
Sorry to disappoint, but I no longer - sigh! - take photographs of anything these days. The years advance and, at the age of 77, I would rather be in the "now" of things rather than join the waiting line for a more than uncertain future.
Indeed I prefer white metals for the daily getaround. However there are certain gold colors that are right for a particular watch, if not always for me. Now on my wrist is a Papillon d'Or by Andreas Strehler - sorry Vianney!
The Historiques Ultra-thin 1955 just blows me away. I can read the time within a handful of seconds from the dialface, without any markings between the minutes indicators! What a relief to be free of a tyrannical seconds hand that dictates precision - and turns me into an even more of a precisionist fanatic. No, this Ultra-thin is truly exact - after a single day and night on the wrist!
Strange indeed that I compared it to my Rolex Day-Date 40 in platinum with the "president's bracelet" and noticed no real change in wearing comfort. The weight difference, however, is impossible to be neglected! Again photos are no great help, expecially where the thin-ness of the VC becomes the main part of the story. Getting the time off of it is a breeze, under all sorts of lighting conditions.
Time for me to say goodbye to Andreas and change back to the VC -
where I really feel at Home!
