How do you expect to sleep tonight after seeing such wonderful VC candy! They look great my friend, have a great weekend!
Better pictures of the new Patrimony PT soon.
I love that one too
It's there on the left, just below the Aronde. Very difficult to see the engraved dial because it's not a close-up.
Sorry about the poor quality shot. It was a quick and dirty with little set-up. It does not do justice at all the the Patrimony PT.
The other watches are: (from L-R) Aronde, Ref 7409 with the engrave dial), the Atelier Cabinotier, and the Chrometre Royal.
very nice collection and composition.
This Platinum Patrimony completes your wonderful photo selection (part of yours).
Thanks for sharing some close-up lately.
Thank you, Liger.
I will try to get some better pics of the patrimony this week.
But I/m sure you will see it in person, very soon
Lovely collection. Thanks for sharing
I'm pleased you like the arrangement
Simple elegance begats sublime pleasure . Considering the prime function of any watch is to tell the time, your selection achieves that mission with ultimate grace. Thanks my dear friend for this timely uplift .
With pleasure, Dean.
The photo is a rush job and does not do justice to any of the watches; but I will try to get some better shots of the Patrimony.
Thanks for your kind words,
Joseph, It's always a delight to both see and hear what you've been upto ??
I'm rather impressed with the additional family member.
I'd like to know how it came about, was it planned or did it just come about?
It's a bit of a long story, but I have beem ogling that watch for a while.
Finally an opportunity arose which as they say was an offer I couldn't refuse
They are all beautiful watches but none of them have blue dials.
(I'm just jealous.)
Thank you for sharing - I'd love to see it up close.
PS - I finally got my OS back from the shop and it was like being reunited with an old friend.
That's certainly good news about your watch, Dave.
I know you've been waiting a while for it.
I'm glad you liked my little selection.
I have had quite a thing for the gray dial Patrimony for several years. I only sated my desire for an 81180 last year with the EP version from 2007, otherwise it surely would have been the gray dial Pt. VC's gray dials are dreamy. What a nice addition to your family. It complements the others so well. Excellent move, Joseph!
I agree about the grey dials. I did look at the roe gold version but despite the grey colour claim, it looked too dark.
I've had my eye on the PT version for a while. After I sold my WG, black dial version, I finally had the funds for it.
Hopefully, I'll have some time this week for some close-ups.
Thank you for your kind words,
Thanks for sharing. I love seeing a collection of similar function watches over a span time from one maker. It let's one see the how the design "ethos" of the Maison evolved over time. What a very lovely group of watches. Where it in good health, Joseph. It is a great addition to an already great collection.
Thanks so much for your kind comments, Jaimie.
I hope to get some pics of the grey dial Patrimony today.
As you know, that grey dial and white metal are a fantastic combination!
of VC history on this photo.
Love your Atelier Cabinotier.
Thinking of one myself.
Thanks so much.
A cabinotier is a once in a lifetime undertaking. And VC really makes it special.
So go for it!
What a great collection! You know what they say, simplicity is a requirement of elegance!
To me, the greatest simple VC design is still the teardrop 4126. It will be my first VC, and I know Alex will help me find a good one when the time comes! ;)
Thank you for your kind words, Ronaldo.
The 4126 is a real classic and an iconic VC. Good luck!
A pltinum king watch landed in the middle :) I have a weakness on the "Aronde" or sometimes called "lips" watch, what a case. The CR too but I'm biased to this "maltese lugs" ;)
