A Watch That Some Have Begged To Buy From Me

Ok.  I am prejudiced.  I REALLY like this watch.  For me the perfect VC and one that people have begged to buy from me--no exaggeration in that.  This is of course the Les Historiques Chronograph.

Of course this is its best side.

I simply love the balance of the piece.  My only criticism is that this is a relatively early model and the crown is a trifle small.  Later models have a larger crown which makes winding easier.

Hi Jeff,

I love my YG leshistoriques chrono for its vintage look but i have to admit that your PT one is perfect.

I consider this watch as the most beautiful chrono of the recent production, it blows away the 5070, Datograph etc....

I agree with you, the Chronographe Historique is most probably one of

the nicest chronos of the past years and one of the rare chronos which looks good in all combinations.

Completely Agree

Hi Jerome:

Could not agree more.  This watch blows away the Patek 5070.  Someone once called the yg/blk dial version of the 5070 a "gambler's watch" and that appellation simply stuck in my head.  It is big and flashy and does not need to be.  What makes this VC so special is that it is understated, refined, elegant but not boring.  It has understated flair in the case/lug design that really appeals to me.  And I should add that in this age of ever larger watches, I appreciate its "just right" size.

I have seen some of your watches in Watch Time some time ago. Mostly red gold... This one is gorgeous. I just don't like the hands, that's why I chose malte chrono.  

To be honest, get rid of it,
