in a vintage mood....

Old Omega chrono from the 50's. A very suitable 36 mm and quite thin. Hoping patiently for a new in house calibre VC chrono....

Just wanted to share, even if the pic is quite dirty, the beauty of the old "patina".

Cheers.

That's a nice old Omega!

I always prefer the square buttons.

Next time perhaps a vintage VC chronograph ?

I thought you will be the first responding and I got it right!!

I love too square buttons, and I think the 50's were very fecond years.

A VC vintage chrono is a dream one year will be reached...the fun is in the searching!

Best

Correct my dear Saltarello!

The hunt is always the best part!

I have been hunting for some special watches from the 30's for years,

one day they will come..........

It's the same with deer hunting,

you wait year after year,

and suddenly the BIG one comes!

And nowadays I don't even shoot, I prefer just enjoying the magnificence

of the animal.

Rather an ex-hunter when it comes to animals,

but not when it comes to Vacheron&Constantin's

Cheers

Glad to hear you finish deer hunting!

Deep V&C hunting is much more rare even if recently the new ones can do a nice catch.
