Hi Loungers, I'm just testing the ability to load pictures from an IPad (or any iOS device). What many of us having been asking for has finally arrived!
I am actually at my auto service center waiting for the car to be serviced. So I brought some toys with me to spend the time...(how sad is it that I start bringing watches with me to keep me amused?)
My ref 7297 was just serviced and I put a new strap on it. VC refinished the dial (as a required service), this was the most time consuming aspect of the watch's service...but they did an AMAZING job with it. Eagle-eyed Loungers will notice the accent above the second E in "GENEVE" is now missing, as consistent with the new fonts and practice that started last year (but the "&" is still there!)
I am fine with the size of this watch, though I will probably give it to the wife at some point in time (with a few colorful quick-change straps...to match her purses, etc. so it can be her "fashion" watch). The good thing about the quick change straps is I can change it back to my strap very easily when I want to use the watch. I expect to keep the vintage buckle for myself :-0
I'm also always playing with straps for the T-Bird and have a real thing for sharksin with this particular watch.
We will be taking a cruise staring on Saturday and will be taking these watches with us. The T-bird likes the Bahamas. :-)
