Thanks for sharing the picture. That "sector" dial is very striking and love a sub-seconds. A very elegant balance they struck there.
This two hand watch is my taste.
Looks great. When is the cruise?
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.
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.
One reason I like the Oversease better than the Royal Oak and Nautilus is the name!
Prdon the terrible focus... the backlighting was playing havoc on the autofocus.

I'm amazed with unusual numbers of your pocket watch.
in enamel on silvered dial. It definately has the Verger look.
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.
(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)
reminds me of the "first" carpet in the NYC boutique.
Without intent, the carpet created discomfort for some after the pattern was recognized. VC quickly changed the carpet.
I happen to be wearing a vintage Longines as well, albeit steel cased.
A real beauty, Tony!
I have always loved the Flagship design(s). Very elegant and reminiscent of the Patrimony line.
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.
Tony--that is a nice photograph of the Flagship. I will have to set up my desktop tent and get to work!
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.
