The price may be a bit optimistic given the market conditions, but for a lot of us, the first desirable dress AP in a long time. If not a sales darling, the press will be dying to get their hands on this to review. I would wear this with joy, as the 1940s were a golden age for chronographs. Obviously some nitpicks with Geneve on the dial, but I hope this is the start of a retro collection. A perpetual calendar and triple calendar at the $12,000 price point would be welcome follow ups.
I like the vintage dial, but don’t love the two-tone case, although I suspect it will be popular. Also would prefer a manual, not automatic, movement. Could be just the reflection off the dial, but the rose gold seems to have a copper tint. Pricing seems high, but in line with the VC Cornes de Vache.
...with a couple of caveats. The rose gold is a bit too 'brassy' to me. Personally I would have preferred yellow gold over platinum or white gold at this price. The yellow of the dial and the hour/minute hands could use a bit more contrast. And the universal nitpick...38mm would have been fantastic. But I've always loved two-tone watches, whether it cases or numbers/markers of different metals.
