And a really interesting watch, Don Alex.
Just think if The Don would have worn this one at the "Big Meet" ;-)
have a good weekend!
Alas Robert, my plans to go climbing this weekend were sabotaged by bad weather so will have to wait another week. I think an "instrument watch" like Alex's would be nice to take along . Luv your 1921, already an iconic VC .
Thanks for the nice words on the 1921.
We are having bad weather down here, too.
And what graces your wrist this weekend?
No one does vintage quite like you do.
to my collection, I think it would be this one. It is beautiful. Love the dagger markers, the color combination, and the understated elegance of it. Do you mind telling me the reference? I would like to do some research and maybe add it to my "targets" list. Thank you.
It's a Patrimony Contemporaine, Ref 81180/000G-9298 in white gold with a black dial.
It was made in a limited edition of 75 pieces for the Austrian and German market.
You may have considerable difficulty finding one. The one I have is the only one I have ever seen. I have never seen them up for auction.
Vacheron does make one in platinum with a medium grey dial which is stunning. I had been looking at it until I found this one, just by luck.
discount as you designed your own watch :-)
I guess they could do anything any client would ask of them - it would all come down to cost effectivenes in the end, right? With the current model still in production I could use a little arm twisting to get the "discount", with the new design on production line it probably wouldn't happen...
tough choices and deliberations ;-) here's another thought for bread: your own Overseas design from the current line-up with an upcoming in-house self-winding chronograph ticker?!? How crazy does that sound?
individual OS case
The above photo is my watch. Gary was kind enough to take a quick shot for me.
I didn't get the credits on my posting from the iPhone. Still learning the ropes.
Can I ask where you got it? It is not Journe, correct?
the stitch is just perfect match to the hands
I would really like to add that to mine!
the maufacture strap and I can barely make out three letters. ARP or ARR as they printed it on the very end of the strap, not real good planning.
Someone on the lounge that is more into straps may have an answer for you. It is a great match and gets unending compliments.
