I have to admit that I had not looked at the thread.
This is not an awful dilema to have:
"Do I want the AP ROyal Oak or the VC Overseas? "
I have to sell my entire collection for either of them!
VC has a head start since a VC is the only watch that has ever stopped me in my tracks. A simple vintage white gold dress watch with an astonishing diamond bezel. I am not a fan of diamonds on watches, but this one was perfect. Already knowing what was beating inside helped with that too. I thought about it for a day or two. It was alot of money. Then it was gone.
I am going back to the AD as soon as life returns to work mode in Australia. Christmas marks the start of summer holidays.
