Here's my version, a cousin to yours from 1948.

Thanks for sharing the picture. That "sector" dial is very striking and love a sub-seconds. A very elegant balance they struck there. 

Overseas Day Off

A new wrist band needs breaking in; so my usual go-to-work Overseas got a day off.

Hi Bill.

This two hand watch is my taste.

Lovely and timeless (in the good way)!

Looks great. When is the cruise?

June Cruise: Overseas!
03/06/2016 - 18:05

Cruise is in June--off to Scandanavia and the Baltic. My Overseas will get most of the use, and the Patek gets formal dinners with the 1972 Asymmetric.

Sounds like a great plan. The 1972 asymmetric is really a special piece.

The Patek is great too, and the obvious choice for formal dinner. But that asymmetric is a little surprise that is delightful.

Have a nice cruise!

You will go "overseas" as your watch's name suggests.

Yes, the Overseas for Overseas!

One reason I like the Oversease better than the Royal Oak and Nautilus is the name!cool

Hello.

I'm amazed with unusual numbers of your pocket watch.

Thanks, they are "cubiste" style

in enamel on silvered dial.  It definately has the Verger look.

nice pick up Alex!

Looks great on your wrist!

I'm late to the party, but wore this yesterday.  It was my father-in-law's.  His mother got it for him at a pawn shop when he needed one for high school. (late 1940s).  The watch itself is from 1936.

It uses a Swiss FHF movement.  

nice pick up Alex!

(The symbol on the dial is a Buddhist symbol for "lucky" and is over a thousand years old.  Conceptually, it is perpetually rotating, collecting luck and good fortune.  The symbol was "reversed" in direction and utilized in the 20th century by a western country...where it took on a totally different meaning and representation)

 

Fascinating watch, Dan

reminds me of the "first" carpet in the NYC boutique.  

Fascinating watch, Dan

I knew you would remember that, and the small controversy it caused.
03/06/2016 - 02:29

Without intent, the carpet created discomfort for some after the pattern was recognized.  VC quickly changed the carpet.

Beautiful Longines, Alex!

I happen to be wearing a vintage Longines as well, albeit steel cased.

Beautiful Longines, Alex!

A real beauty, Tony!

I have always loved the Flagship design(s). Very elegant and reminiscent of the Patrimony line.

Joseph

Thank you, Joseph

I agree that these early Flagships were both distinctive and beautifully designed. The only flaw that I can think of is that on the steel cased versions, which I generally prefer, the Flagship image was etched rather lightly into the case backs, and as a result, few have survived in good condition. The gold versions fare better, as the image was created in relief.

Cheers,

Tony C.

Nice photograph!

Tony--that is a nice photograph of the Flagship. I will have to set up my desktop tent and get to work!

Thanks Bill...

In my experience, tinkering around with Lightroom (or any good post-processing software) can make the difference between ordinary (or worse) and above average results.

Cheers,
