Dear Alex, you really know how to strike at the heart .  That is the best vintage V&C I've seen for the year!!  What a dial...pristine and vibrant...and the iconic teardrop lugs with banded case in such a large size makes this piece an exceptional classic.  RG was so unusual in 1943! Any movement details and perhaps pics of the watchworks?  Is it in the VC collection or private ownership?
no movement scans yet but will try to take some afte the

La famille est ensemble-enfin- et nous allons passer la fete avec Mickey Mouse en Foride (plus chaud qu'ici) et moi , je apporterai mon OC Chrono. (Tout le monde est tres sentimental a cause de nos plusieurs visites auparavants quand ils etaint petits) Joseph

HI Alex, Thanks!  I think this is the best combination of complications that I can think of for myself .  It looks to be in great condition.  Only one piece, I guess my tastes are unique.   BR, Dan
