The problem is a long term value one. One can purchase a used platinum on the street for the same list price as this steel, if not less. It’s tough to consider any new Vacheron given the drastic loss of value after purchase. I would love to own a Cornes de Vache. I just can’t justify it. This coming from a very long term Vacheron customer.

of an excellent chronograph. Thanks for taking your time writing this review Cheers
Thanks for your great comprehensive review. I agree with most of your arguments. Except I don’t see any real issue with the movement being small. As you mentioned it: they worked it well. And indeed if the case would have been bigger it perhaps might have...
I agree in everything and most of all, on your first point about the unneccesary collaboration with Hodinkee. In addition, I would change the strap to a more fitting dark blue or brown square scaled matte alligator. If one wants something more sporty, I w...
very nice review. i love the case' size (less the price)
enjoyed reading... I recently had the opportunity to try this on my wrist at a VC boutique alongside the platinum version and must say I had high expectations for this steel release.... but trying them on next to each other I would say the platinum all da...
Indeed, I would not buy anything “special edition Hodinkee”. Syncophantic behavior is not my forte.
