then by all means go for the dual time. In case I don't have both then I'll choose which is more useful to me. If you travel often then I suggest you buy the OS dual time. If your wrist is small I suggest you buy the black dial since white dial tends to look bigger. good luck on your purchase of an OS!
the black dial big date chrono or the white dial dual time. The later is more useful as far as I am concerned, but if indeed it is for active duty you want this watch and see a chrono as something useful then by all means the first one. It has some useful function like the date too
sporty aggressive look and the strap.
Next would be the Dual Time with black dial (not a fan of sporty watches with white dials).
I would go for the dual time with black dial. The US LE is also nice but I would like to see it with the rubber strap.
If I had my way, I would have the current bracelet design (or leather/rubber strap) attached to this:
The 40mm size of the old model fits my wrist better and I feel there is a better balance and proportion of the dial, bezel, casing and movement sizes. Of course, if my wrist were bigger, the new model would be OK for me too.
Here's an inside shot of the new Overseas showing the F. Piguet based movement inside the anti-magnetic casing (photo lifted from the website of Chronos Magazine, Japan edition)
the new models
I am sorry to fall below Radek.
I was surprised!!
You have ESP.
Because I got ready now to introduce this watch.
It is a Japanese limited market edition in 2007 though seems to be persistent.
The tachymeters are each of of the beige and blue 50 limited producted.
§2 CHRONO DEFI MERS
Thanks V.Piguet for this information.
The blue one is very nice.
I don't know why blue and orange/beige are the favorites colors for LE? :) (for exemple the AP ROO Boutique, etc)
vote because of the orange numerals and the strap. These two are serious contender though.
What I particularly like about these chronos is that the two minutes and hours counter subdials are the same size which is not the case on the regular production models.
Really nice watch.
To be honest VC has made it extremely difficult to make the right choice with all the new OS releases. It seems as if any choice of OS would be a hit. Now that all the new OS models are finally available on a leather/rubber strap it is really hard make up my mind. The bracelet was the only thing that kept me from getting one so far.
As far as design the new Japanese (including the 'Engine') and US chrono limited editions are very much to my liking. On the other hand the dual time is a very useful feature. I am hesitant. Have to think it over again and again...
I had a chance to handle the Japan LE's a while ago and I must say that I like them better than the regular production models (they look cool even in pics). Although the US LE with the orange details really stands out as sporty, the Japan LE's are also cool but just a tad stealthier (probably having the more reserved Japanese buyer in mind).
The US LE for the strap (whereas I am not very fan of the orange color on the dial).
This watch is a real beauty!!
I recently purchased a Dual Time - Silver Dial, and I absolutely love it. I find the time feature to be useful in travel, as well as business (dealing with clients/vendors/etc overseas). Other than that, the design and face is super cool, and something different than a chrono. If you realy want chrono, my vote would be for the US LE or Engine.
its the strap that makes it all come together.
And buy a YG with YG bracelet
A real Rolex killer
Love you, Doc
I think this is really a unique club we have created under Alex's wings,

I really , really appreciate that answer !
Yeah, I love you and all other here too !
It doesn't matter that we have different opinions and taste,
yes, even differs 60 years, in what are the best watches,
we still have the relaxed absolute true attitude
I think that is in it's finest way,
brotherhood and respect and love,
for all members.
All of you are as intersting as the other.
Yep I love you all,
and a very special watchmaking firm Vacheron&Constantin
The LE gold with chocolate dial would do the trick!
Make that rose gold!
1) OS Dual Time LE RG/Chocolate dial (if there is still one available somewhere and if you can afford it)
2) OS Dual Time BLack Dial - the DUal Time is hands down my favourite Overseas model: IMO the most aesthetically pleasing, and also the most practical in terms of functionality
3) Overseas Engine - the dial is really cool, I love the carbon fiber look as well as the start position of the sub-dials...
Having said that, I would prefer them all with a strap rather than a metal bracelet...
