Less is more … except the weight 😂

Pure class.

Love it. This fine grained platinum dial and the overall package. So stealth yet so good.

I'm sure the weight of the platinum on the wrist is an added joy.


 By: Jp75 : April 17th, 2023-19:34
Yes, the weight is perfect. Reminder that you have it without being overbearing. Also having switched the strap from blue to brown make it even more stealth! J

There is a world beyond rare handcraft pieces I promised 😅 Even though I must confess that you are a dangerous enabler; or to speak using the language of mathematics, P (moving towards rare handcrafts / reading your forum) is definitely higher than it was... 

Many thanks Jerome, I'm not entirely sure if my forum is to "thank" or to "blame" for the popularity of Rare Handcrafts....but I genuinely appreciate it! ;-)))

Seriously, I did notice your interest recently, and (needless to say) it would be *amazing* if one day you decided to add a RH to your terrific collection! Cheers my friend.

Great choice Jerome! Quite smitten with this one!

Not sure with this dial color but in general white metals are strap friendly! I can get away with almost any color on my RG traditionnelle so don’t be afraid to try a color you feel like trying…nothing specific comes to mind but…

Grey, dark green, dark blue, red (!), … you could also consider the leather type. Instead of alligator try some textured calfskin or staffiano leather….

Was wondering the same prior to buying it …

And the answer is a clear no as it is quite discrete on the “twinkling” dial Actually the element which jumps out of the dial is more the blued small second, Jerome

Thanks count !

Thanks all for your kind comments

 By: Jp75 : April 18th, 2023-15:56
Very much in honeymoon phase here; time only watch reduced to the max, weighty presence of platinum in a stealthy guise, the discrete “twinkling” of dial, a great movement, and a relative rarity … 🥰 Will continue to experiment with straps (following the l... 

Couldn’t agree with you more!

Pure understated elegance

Dear Jerome, I like you taste for VC watches and you seem to pair them with style. thank you for sharing. I am considering trading-in a Historiques 1921 36,5mm in WG for the Traditionnelle Excellence Platine. Would you share your insights on that? Thanks

Some random thoughts

 By: Jp75 : June 1st, 2023-06:40
First of all, great to be in a position to chose between what are definitively two very nice VCs. Some random thoughts from my side: 1/ the traditionelle is a very understated watch which shines with its finishing, movement, timelessness and still manage ... 

Great insights

 By: Adilo : August 22nd, 2023-15:28
Thank you for your ithoughts, Jerôme I was leaning towards the Excellence Platine watch when I saw it, but the added hurdle dealing with the trade-in and the fact that I had my 1921 new with nice memories associated with the experience, made me further ap... 

Great to hear

 By: Jp75 : August 23rd, 2023-08:17
Fully agree with you that the memories made with the watches are as important as the machines themselves Hope you can soon fulfill your quest with the 222! Cheers, Jerome
