Blomman, your Vintage saga has again found another chapter, so appealing.
- Thank you for highlighting on this special 'goddess' !
It truly resembles for me at least, a convincing balance among many watches I know from JLC,
a very special one as well - as it is not only an absolute beauty but a Chronometre !!
- (if it has the same precision, I am not sure)
Possibly, no likely only surpassed by the icon, the epitomic Geophysic,
which has those elements of uniqueness and historical significance connected,
(and representing a piece more on the precision, the scientific side, I learned)
As per to the ads, I at times have the feeling, that JLC pursued several lines, various
statements with and for the watch, not always coherent and different we tend to perceive it now
- I personally would not link this watch with a lot of 'action' or sports, nor would I use it for those;
the ads with the obelisk, serence contemplation, I can more relate to, find it more logical.
I think, also Nico made a fine point , there
Thus, I also occasionally thought, the Geomatic is at times maybe a bit understated
, for sure one with timeless beauty:
Somehow, for me this is a sort of 'gourmet' watch, a piece for the connaisseur,
a piece to strive for or hold, but likewise admire and cherish.
Not long ago, I had the pleasure to see one, and the sublime impression in real, whereby it
all around convinces you: appeal, proportions, balance but also it effortlessly resembles some special
significance with, how shall I say, understated presence, that is so convincingly 'low key',
but elegant with nonchalance, with knowledge of being - special..
In a way, silent knowledge of representing more, much more, than one would assume on first sight:
- thank you for making this again a deserved subject in your fine series.
Someone might summarize " .. Possibly a lot ( if not almost all) of you can want in a fine watch,
- a very fine watch " .
- Not more not less.
A piece many of us love, I am sure - your post again highlighted that nicely.
Warrants to lookout for one with intensity or cherish one, if you belong to some happy owners..
Best, my friend
PS: - what I always also enjoy, is seeing the Geomatic and the 'absolute goddess'
the Geophysic back to back, or even together.. Summit Meeting ..
- had the thankful pleasure to see both in real together at meeting a kind friend, 'you-know-whom'. This message has been edited by hs111 on 2011-08-02 22:30:47
