Alex, do you have the date of release for The Patrimony Traditionnelle? Will it be this sumer, fall or winter and will VC release it in some special market first or will it be a worldwide-release?
I think this one can be it - My first Vacheron Constantin. It size is perfect and think it looks very modern for being a classic design (if you guys understand what I mean). With the first generation of cal: 2455 ticking inside it will be awesome. I have to se it in flesh first offcourse before I make my choise. Its up in the ring against the Breguet Marine SS, JLC Reverso WG Duo, Blancpain Leman Flyback Chrono...but I will probably change my mind of those a couple of more times hehe (to many nice watches out there).
I like the idea of "a gentlemans watch" and im not much of a collecting type of guy. Thats why I want the style of a watch to work with everything. As the typical dress-watch it is it will be perfect for business etc. but do you think it will work in more casual situations as well (even jeans with some polo)? Im thinking of the WG cuz I like white metals the most (for me it looks "younger" than YG/RG ). Maybe the black gator strap looks more formal then brown straps...dunno. I will probably keep my Panerai as a beater but I dont want to switch watch from work to free-time everyday.
Hmm funny when I think of it..., My experience of peoples taste is that most of the people dont have problems with a guy that wears a sport Rolex to a suit but when it comes to more dressy watches and casuel clothing it dont work the other way around, at least not for younger people.
Would love to hear you guys opinion on this.
