Incoming revealed! VC Traditionelle small second

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 20th, 2022-11:32
As many of you had guessed, here it is! I have been looking to add my first VC to my collection for quite some time now. I also did not have a rose gold time only watch. Here i really fell in love with the fluidity of the case and its dial, and the beauti...  

Thank you Fabrizio! I am also officially waiting for my first Patek but it will likely take a bit longer for that one :-))). Regarding this VC, i always liked this one but ...

a few years ago for some reason I was afraid to buy 38mm watch as most of my collection was 42mm+. Today is the opposite as my sweet spot is really 38-40mm. Cheers

A Patek of course represents a unique experience and milestone in our horological journeysโ€ฆas Iโ€™m looking forward to seeing it, in a sense Iโ€™m also glad itโ€™s taking some time, since the wait/expectation will make that moment even more special!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

 By: FabR : May 20th, 2022-12:26
Until then, this is obviously the other brand that has written the history of this discipline, and is now part of a group (Richemont) that youโ€™ve already extensively experienced at various levelsโ€ฆIโ€™m sure the charm and value of owning a Vacheron is someth...

Huge congratulations,this is a fantastic watch.

 By: jlux : May 20th, 2022-12:14
One of the very best elegant "time only" watches out there. Now looking forward to your strap combinations : I would probably try british racing green and burgundy red ....

me too!

Perfect choice for a VC, well done!

 By: ArmisE : May 20th, 2022-13:25
I wasnโ€™t sure if this line was no longer in production or not? Perhaps that applied to the platinum version only, since they also have the platine excellence version too. But your and apernaโ€™s versions are awesome. I canโ€™t begin to imagine which other str... 

Wasnโ€™t aware

 By: Jp75 : May 20th, 2022-18:40
Wasnโ€™t aware, interesting. Had been looking casually for a grey dial last year and understood that it wasnโ€™t possible, didnโ€™t realize that they discontinued also the WG one. That makes this one even more special in my eyes, future classic in the making, B... 

Thanks Jerome!

Fantastic new aquisition

 By: Weems@8 : May 20th, 2022-13:27
A VC is also on my list. I like many refs VC have. Fifty six, Partimony, etc,,. Till later.

Wow thank you uncle chico! Cheers!

Time only watch but so much to explore.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : May 20th, 2022-13:54
on the dial and movement side. Very thoughtful design and a pure joy for the eyes. Congrats to this lovely, lovely VC: all a Purist needs!

Thank you my friend!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 20th, 2022-18:57

Merci Nicolas! I am so happy with it. As you may know like other members here i was considering the usual suspects in terms of time only rose gold watch and...

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 20th, 2022-17:15
the overall simplify of the dial and its case was just perfect for me compared to other similar offering...cheers!

I am very picky about details, especially on watch faces...

 By: mdg : May 20th, 2022-14:43
...but I really can't find anything that's not top-notch on this one. Where is Patek's version of this watch? I guess the 6119? Maybe, but this watch just drips with class...

Spectacularly cool!

An all-time, gorgeous classic. No doubt about it. Thanks for the equally spectacular pictures. Cheers, Filip

Beautiful watch and pictures to match. As you my know Iโ€™m a great fan โ€ฆ if not totally unbiased. I love the understated approach, the nice 4400 movement, and the dial which emphasize harmony, balance and โ€œ less is moreโ€ understated approach. Wear it in be...

One of the best VC there is

 By: TeutonicCarFan : May 20th, 2022-20:46
I wanted to add the platinum last year but they ended production. Enjoy!

It's a beauty

 By: TeutonicCarFan : May 20th, 2022-21:38
This case, caliber and dial. Perfect vc charm. Wish I liked rg cases, would order. Thanks for sharing๐Ÿ‘

Congratulations again!

 By: KCLQMULKU : May 20th, 2022-21:50
This is truly a magnificent addition to your collection, and timeless! You must try Jean Rousseau for their custom straps (long wait, but worth it)! Picked up mine only today, but won't debut until later. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks! I will look them up!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 20th, 2022-22:00

This one was ordered at their London store in January (collected just last week).

 By: KCLQMULKU : May 21st, 2022-12:35
Quite a subtle burgundy, turning very dark when away from the light (I remember the skin being brighter, but that was nearly 6 months ago). ...  

Wow it looks amazing! Thanks for sharing!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 21st, 2022-13:50

Thanks - but lets get back to your amazing watch!!! ๐Ÿ˜†

 By: KCLQMULKU : May 21st, 2022-14:51
You must post some photos of strap combinations! Will also be great to get one (or a few) alongside your CK and Tuxedo!

Great idea! For sure new straps are comingโ€ฆ
