Finally, I'm officially a VC owner!

I’ve been lusting after this piece ever since it was announced. I just never pulled the trigger. I passed on 3 of this at my local AD... At one point, the AD told me the blue variant would become less available out of the factory boutiques. Even then, I passed...

A few days ago, I pulled the trigger. The watch wears very well. Much better than I anticipated. Recently I traded away my 5980/1A for a 5270P. So many people asked me if I miss it. Honestly, not really... Now that I have this Overseas, I think about the 5980 even less. The blue on this dial has a depth in it that I don’t know how to describe in words. You can lose yourself looking into it. Love the quick change strap system. Now it’s on the rubber strap, because it’s less obvious (shiny). I also hope that my wife wouldn’t notice the new watch on my wrist. Hahaha. Anyway, good to be here finally!

I really wish it hacked, but life goes on. Ha

Thanks for your little review.

You made a great decision and really have a piece that never gets boring. Enjoy and dont forget to post many more pictures. Do you already got the new box, the one thats a bit more similar to the PP-Box? If yes, did you still get a travel-bag for your pie... 

Oh no!

I do have the new box, which is smaller than the original one. It's more like a PP or Rolex box. I thought the quality was very good. Unfortunately, I didn't get any goodies along with this purchase. So far, I haven't found anything negative about this wa... 

Thank you. Keep us updated ! :) [nt]

Congrats.

The strap change system is something that really appeals to me. Whatever about changing one gator strap for another easily, being able to go from bracelet to rubber absolutely gives you a different watch. Enjoy it.

Huge congratulations!

It’s a great watch in so many respects. Reminds me that I have to wear mine again. Best, V. ...  

Now I'm contemplating buying one for my wife too...

I know she wouldn't want it, but it would be cool to have matching Overseas.

I hope this answers your question.

I was looking for an elegant sports watch to add to my collection. I think I don't need to list the usual suspects. Honestly, I tried to get a 5711 in late 2016/early 2017, but I was too late. I didn't want to pay such high premium for it. I also passed o... 

Congratulations!!! I feel you. I, too, am thinking of getting a copper brown piece.

This blue dial variant looks extremely stunning and plays with the light very well. No photo is able to justify its beauty. I bet it looks extremely gorgeous with the blue leather strap that comes with it.

Brown was on the shortlist.

 
 By: fuigo : October 28th, 2019-07:38
A shortlist of two. Haha. In the end I picked blue, but the brown is very special. Blue was the lazy choice for me. I was lucky that they only had a blue and silver for me to pick from.

Congrats fuigo!

I also just acquired mine from my AD on Saturday. Waited for a few months for it to arrive -- I may be wrong but I think the blue dials may be getting harder to source from ADs, or it might just be in SF where my AD is located. Kind regards, Dan

Congrats to you too!

That’s what I’m hearing from the AD here.

Congrats 🎉

My next watch, although I want the silver dial.

I’ve only seen the silver dual time version.

It is very cool, indeed.

Huge Congrats , great looking VC
