It has an old world charm that is hard to convey unless in real

For me it is a personally historic acquisition as it made me love matt dials and really struggle for all non-matt ones. The sad thing is that these fantastic VC dials (like the grey one too) were made by the cadraniers de Genève who now belong to FPJ. I s... 

I will!!

Indeed, the sale of CDG marked also the end of the possibility to order a bespoke dial for any VC model. Since then that option is not possible sadly 😔😔😔 All the best, Alex

It does, but....

With a completely different approach, which I struggle with. You cant any more customize an existing model. You either make a complicated one, or they offer a catalogue of non standard classical style cases with std movements which you can customize the d... 

Hi Jay

My understanding is that they still do as part of the deal, but with a limited, focused range, like the blue overseas dial. Since the FPJ acquisition of CdG no more matt dial traditionnelles are being produced (even if on the website). no more ability to ... 

These Traditionnelle Manual Winds are torture for me

I have not met a version of this watch yet that I don't like, but the platinum with gray dial has haunted me for years. You wear them so well. Best, respo

Thanks Respo!

Love 'em.

Hands to die for and that seconds subdial on the platinum one... Nothing more beautiful than that in watches. Cheers Marc

The hands are of surreal craftsmanship indeed

 
 By: agyzace : February 19th, 2021-20:24
It is great to read how much you like these models too Marc. All the best, Alex

Outstanding Alex!!!!

Thank you!

Beautiful both, Alex

 
 By: renerod : February 19th, 2021-17:44
I understand why you chose to have both. Being the same model, they look so different! Every time I be has it's own kind of charm. I sincerely would have struggled to choose just one Best regards and enjoy your beauties! René

Thanks René!

 
 By: agyzace : February 19th, 2021-20:26
They are completely different but both very common in feeling impeccable in every sense. All the very best, Alex

Thanks Jay!!

It is a good pick 😊

2 more reasons VC is tops for me!

 
 By: dkaleal : February 20th, 2021-18:41
Thanks for sharing! -D-

I also agree

 
 By: agyzace : February 20th, 2021-22:22
VC represents haute horlogerie in the old school sense of the word, incl.. craftsmanship, manic attention to execution, etc. There are flaws in its approach (see generally bigger than ideal diameters), but it’s a brand I have a huge weak spot for, due to ... 

Another platinum-grey dial to add

 
 By: NT931 : February 20th, 2021-21:10
The subtly two-toned dial , the slim profile and the perfect 38mm size make it one of my favorite dress watches. ...  

What a superb picture!

 
 By: agyzace : February 20th, 2021-22:22
Thanks for sharing! I fully agree on the reasons you call out! Thanks again and enjoy!! Alex

Ahhhh... Here they are 😄

 
 By: mrds : February 20th, 2021-23:40
Thanks a lot Alex for bringing these beauties to the light again. They are simply gorgeous and to see them both side by side is just delicious. VC at its best! I tend to always fall for the white metal watches (I rarely wear gold) but in this case it’s a ... 

My sincere pleasure, dearest Daniel!!!

I also agree the ivory matt one is a stunner. It is so rich/deep that unless experienced in the flesh it is hard to comprehend the quality. Have a great Sunday! Alex
