Vacheron Constantin: Thanks for the real life report, Jurry

A week has gone by, and my fever to purchase the 1942 seems to be receding. Saved by the bell, perhaps! Ano “Why is there always a ‘next’ watch?” Nuevo

Cartier: I’m hoping for an early arrival, mahesh. Wrist shots, oh yes, definitely.

It will be interesting to see the traditional-looking solar model in this Tank series, too. How did they make those tiny holes so the light can pass through the dial??

Cartier: Well, color me surprised at the interest in the new quartz Tanks!

I think it shows a generosity of spirit among the Puristi. A simple but well-executed quartz gets respect, along with uber-high horology perpetual calendars. Good coverage of the watch spectrum! Ano “I’ll take that perpetual now, thank you” Nuevo

Cartier: “Everything old is new again” - Peter Allen song

Just ordered this, for delivery sometime June-September. Wanted something I could slap on my wrist without a thought. QUARTZ!! Have I gone insane? Supposedly an 8-year battery, I think.

Vacheron Constantin: Thanks for the response, destrodan

Sounds like VC should start selling branded toothpicks as a marketing device! I’m weighing the 1942 against the ALS Saxonia Aventurine, in a case of apples vs. oranges. The history of the 1942 is very appealing, as is its “hand drawn” visual look. A.N.

Vacheron Constantin: Thanks for the info, Mike!

I guess that the beautiful 1942 Triple Calendar and I would not be a good match of owner and watch. It’s as though I bought a demanding and rambunctious puppy, when I want a sleepy and inactive lapdog. Ano “But I’d sure like a fawn-colored boxer!” Nuevo

Vacheron Constantin: VC 1942 triple calendar owners — Is resetting an onerous and dangerous task?

I’m really tempted to get the 1942 Triple Calendar, with its nice case and retro dial design. I downloaded the instruction manual and was unpleasantly surprised by all the cautionary language. To paraphrase: “Don’t adjust the date between 7 and 12 hours. Don’t adjust the week during these days. Don’
