I am considering this model in RG some time down the road...
Recently I have been wearing my Royal Eagle Chronograph SS and Patrimony Power Reserve WG (both black dialed) most. I have gotten a new beauty today though: a Patrimony Contemporaine YG and am sure it will stay on my wrist for quite a while.
Sorry no pix. I tried to upload all the pictures on my laptop but they got in the way with the text. Will do that next time at the office.
admiring and cherishing it all day long and can't really believe I hated the design just a few months back. Now I really am enjoying it and can't get enough. It is my first manual wind, you know. What changed my mind, I think, was a lot of attention that was given to this model on our Lounge in the last couple of months and very positive opinions on the piece from the Loungers. thanks guys, you really had a blessing impact on me in that respect!
First of all, let me congratulate "chronometer" for such a sexy piece. Great picture but I am sure it looks 100x sexier in person.
Congrats too to Radek for the new acquisition. Seeing the Excellence Platine dial on the Chronograph makes me wonder how beautiful the Contemporaine Excellence Platine must look like. I hope to be able to add a similar watch (although in PG) sooner than later. Now, as to the question...my old Overseas chronograph (black dial w/ arabics) has been seen much wrist time (coupled with...my old Rolex, sshhh!) as the humid whether here really puts a damper on wearing anything with leather straps. I do wear my WG Toledo every now and then because I already have an extra strap in hand. On special occasions, and on dryer days, I wear my Jubile 1755 and I alternate this with my PP 5146 for casual weekends.
Gorgeous watch indeed!!! I am like my dog now...
thats one hell of a gorgeous watch Chronometer and your photos really show the sheen of the dial: Congrats
In the past months I either wear my Urwerk 103.3
or my Patrimony Boutique
It was like that when I received it. I realized it after a few days of ownership. You can see it under a bright light but it can't be seen under dark/normal lighting. Same thing happened to my (then) Rolex's dial many2 years ago. Of course, neither affects the performance of the watch. But, is it normal? I mean, maybe the hand finishing is not perfect (of course, all hand finishing can't be perfect, can it?)
yes that's not normal (and very weird) but you should take it back.
The problem is, I have to take it back to Singapore (and they may laugh over that matter). Should I really?
That's a really lovely watch, a really stunning design! Wear it in good health
certainly not my last! Up til now I mostly collected PPs but I'm slowly discovering the world of VC and i'm loving it
your 1st VC you can't stop!!
