Well, I have this one with me today.

With the Exhibit in Beijing, I took out my oldest pieces to share with friends...for some reason Museums just aren't friendly enough to take pieces out of their exhibits so visitors can hold and inspect them more closely.  cheekywink

 

Here it is normally:

Well, I have this one with me today.

 

And here it is in a newly made brass container.  I have a deck watch that came with wooden box and brass container, but the brass top to the container was cross-threaded.  So I had a new brass top made.  What I did not know was that the factory (one of my company's vendors) decided to make me a totally new brass container, with two brass tops.  So now I have 2 completely usuable containers that happen to fit two watches. 

Well, I have this one with me today.

what a beautiful watch

And what great luck to have two interchangeable containers. I just love the long elegant hands. Thank you for sharing it. 

Brilliant Dan, nice work!

Beautiful Dan,

A great dial and the brass container looks like a perfect fit!

Hey, is that crown not pushed in? Don't get it wet Alex! You can send it to me for safe keeping if you'd like.

A very nice version of that watch, Alex.

It looks great on your wrist!

Mine too, Robert.

It looks terrrific, but then I am partial to that one smiley

It looks like it's going for a dip. Make sure everything is screwed down tightly. surprise

Love this version! [nt]

Very nice, Jaimie!

Gotta love that design.

Is that an M4 you're sitting in? cheeky

Joseph

Funny you should ask...
05/12/2015 - 12:32

and ironically, the answer is, "no" - it is the previous M3 coupe with the NA V8.  BUT... I do also have the M4 - the new one with the Twin Turbo V6.  I must confess, as much as I love the V8, the TT V6 is faster.

Funny you should ask...

And yeah... that garage needs some cleaning!

...it does?!

Not a VC today
05/12/2015 - 02:27

or a V&C, for that matter devil.  Busy working on the bicycles so Sinn is my watch of choice.

Not a VC today

Wore a vintage V&C last night (ref 4166) at the film festival in town, but didn't think to take pictures sad.  Am still pondering the fantastic documentary "Best of Enemies" about the infamous debates during the Presidental Election campaign of 1968 between Gore Vidal and Bill Buckley Jr.  An amazing and public struggle between to ideologues from opposite sides of the spectrum.  It is almost depressing that they were arguing points which are still political fodder today.  Neither man saw his utopia come to pass, and one of the most powerful scenes was a later interview where Buckley confesses he is simply tired of life.

I want to see that documentary.
05/12/2015 - 04:02

I would also like to see the ref. 4166. ;-)

You'll have to settle for its introductory post until I get it out in the wild again: http://www.thehourlounge.com/en/vacheron-constantin-discussions/hip-be-square-597574

I'm Sinn-ful too...LOL

Nice watch! I have the EZM10 - more cluttered but I like it.

Have a great Tuesday Everybody.

 

 

Great idea!
05/12/2015 - 19:11

Although every watch in this thread is a stunner and worthy of comment, with VE week just past, the pairing of military models and military-style watches is a great idea yes.  Can't come closes to the historic significance of Joseph's amazing Cartier but I'll post this pair of Germans to see your Italians.

Great idea!

Wish I had a Smiths to pair with this Spitfire.  I can imagine the pilot saying, "Just put the bloody thing back together before they call another scramble!"

Great idea!

Nice!!!
05/12/2015 - 19:28

Love your models, super!

Something to say thank you smiley

Nice!!!

Ugly (but freshly done at least) picture for a cute watch and model (made by a talented English modeller).

 

Re: Nice!!!
05/12/2015 - 22:19

These models are fabulous! I never seemed to be able to make mine look like that...

There's a Spitfire in the war museum in Ottawa; I was surprised to see how small they are - you could almost put one in my living room.

Thanks Dan,

but if i think about your VC collection, i wish I was you also! )))

Re: What are you wearing today?
05/15/2015 - 19:23

Not a VC, I am afraid.

I am  wearing a watch that I got some 7 years ago after reading one of Alex's article who described Voutilainen's work 'en passant' on this very forum.

 

 What are you wearing today?

 

So a small indirect way to say a big thank you, Alex.

Thank you also for the very nice content and gentile atmosphere that always seems to reign on The Hour Lounge. 

Good evening to all.

good to see you here and WOW, what a watch :-)

Dear jtodd, 

Late with the answer. But I have just decided to join the club.

I am also a fan of the Overseas Models.

This one is close to my hand and deep in my heart.
