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...
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

What a superb picture!
Thanks for sharing! I fully agree on the reasons you call out! Thanks again and enjoy!! Alex
Ahhhh... Here they are 😄
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
