Having a Captain Ahab moment around here

Aug 12, 2019,02:37 AM

I think I might have caught a grey shark. Squalo Grigio is what I call it.

I really find the aesthetics quite appealing and a deviation from the norm, something that has already been pointed out by several watch blogs etc. But I think the attraction here for me on the aesthetics is that it reminds me of a summer in Italy, and I can see how this watch would fit right in on the beach. The size is great and would readily be brought into the boardroom as well.

Just one thing I don’t quite get yet is the movement. Why the Val Fleurier instead of Panerai in-house ?

Dont know why, but the Vaucher fleurier movement is one of the best movements out there.

Thank you Fab

I think there is a difference between OP in-house movements versus VF. VF however is owned under the Richemont group

I’ll find out and let you know

I think P.3000 is in-house, but I am checking to see if my understanding is correct !

As far as I know the only disadvantage, if you consider it that, is that unlike the in house equivalent, the hour hand can't be moved independently. I think it's a great watch!

Thank you

I didn’t the in-house OP movement allows for independent adjustment of the hour hand.

A very nice string of photos ...
