I certainly like it

 By: batholith : September 10th, 2020-00:23
Quite fairly priced for what it is, as well. If my short list weren't a few volumes long already, I'd add it!

Haha, could really be my only watch...

Must be discreet with the bracelet, don’t want to get robbed..

The watch is cool, not my kind of beer though....

The first pic is extremly photoshoped

Stainless steel? [nt]

Never liked showing your wealth

 By: CastorKrieg : September 10th, 2020-00:31
YG and RG scream money - also make you an easy target. I prefer WG, A or P.

Very nice

what s the msrp?

46k USD [nt]

I wish I would have bought the WG time only when

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-03:56
I had the chance.

Love it, very elegant [nt]

Yes, that’s what I thought too, now, what about

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-03:59
A time only red/yellow gold ultra thin?

Ooooh that would be super cool [nt]

 By: Mohannad (aka Riddler) : September 10th, 2020-04:12

Yes!! I thought that too, then you have full

Oligarch status when you want to with the bracelet.

It looks very sporty and elegant, I like it better on the on the bracelet.

 By: PoyFR : September 10th, 2020-01:10
Very nice shots too, perfect postures.

Really pushing the idea of 3 watches in one

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-04:01
Oh my Ss, I found the leather the least loved, did not seem well integrated.

i told i friend that i like it and that i might order it....

 By: Peter : September 10th, 2020-01:13
...his answer was: get a rolex sub YG blue dial instead! πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Vc is nicer than

 By: shafran : September 10th, 2020-02:12
a sub . Try them both

Well, you pay less for a Sub, 🀣, get

More general recognition, if that what’s you want...

Yes, with the crime that is happening, should

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-04:03
Always keep a gold watch under a cuff in public, or the like.

Really, in NYC?

 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : September 10th, 2020-05:58
crime is up, but still at historic lows. "Central NYC", is Manhattan, and aside from the strange area that has arisen at w38th St, it is still remarkably safe during the day, based not on anecdotes or tabloid articles, but statistics. Having said that, on... 

True, I think around 5th Ave, you should be okay, and prob Financial District,

Washington Heights? Not too sure LOL.

Attracting Thieves

 By: ppatti99 : September 12th, 2020-21:47
That's why I love Platinum, common thieves clueless, a big bright GOLD watch attracts thieves, hookers and so on. That being said I love my VC RG Chrono on bracelet I just wear it wisely.

I really really like it

 By: Cookies : September 10th, 2020-02:56
But i don’t think I can pull it off. I tend to hide my pieces under the sleeve a lot. I like the tone of gold and the simplicity of it.

Me, too [nt]

 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : September 10th, 2020-06:01

Very true, I guess the quick change to the rubber/leather

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-04:05
Hopefully helps with that.

Understated when you need it to be, then, full blown..

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-16:35
Oligarch status when needed...

I would want this to pair with the La Tradition Date

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-04:48
You showed, a good two watch collection!!

Funny, I am also often thinking that a La Tradition is either the only watch to have or to have another one as a two watch collection.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : September 10th, 2020-04:57
The new La Tradition date is really cool, almost avant-garde looking, despite the fact, that it is nothing new, to have a pointer date ...

I totally agree there... [nt]

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-06:55

This watch changes my mind

 By: dhendolan : September 10th, 2020-04:52
About all-gold sports watches with bracelets. This is beautiful. I would wear it. The colors work. If such a thing is possible it's restrained.

The Blue and RG is a great combination so that alone catches the eye of a lot of people I would think.

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 10th, 2020-04:53
The date window, here we go again. Doh ! (To be fair, only the white dial Nautilus manages to win on this one and that was unintentional by Patek as the date window just happened to be white ! ) The quick change strap system is also a big attraction of th... 

The date window color is one thing I can give to the 15202

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-06:33
They did it right. The quick change system can help you be more discrete with this watch.


 By: watch-er : September 10th, 2020-06:10
Wish I could afford one.

Yes, I do feel companies always overcharge for their gold watches

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-06:35
Like does it have to be more than twice as much as the SS?

I really like the latest Overseas line.

 By: BigAppleBill : September 10th, 2020-07:36
The originality, workmanship, movement, quick-change system and overall aesthetic are on point. This gold version is a very compelling piece. And the blue is really striking. But I can’t help but think how it might look with the discontinued brown dial fr... 

Yes! The brown dial one.. I loved that one...

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-07:58
Let’s see what other gold models they show in the OS line.

At almost $50k, a matching date background would be nice...

 By: mdg : September 10th, 2020-09:09
...but other than that this is a pretty versatile watch. Would have preferred 39-40mm but you can't always get what you want...

The OS Ultrathin in white gold was killer, no date,

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-09:16
Maybe they can do it in red/yellow gold.

I like giving the buyer the option of date or no date...

 By: mdg : September 10th, 2020-09:57
...but date backgrounds that don't match the dial are almost universally despised by WIS. Why don't the manufacturers know that? Or do they know it and not care? Either is bad.

Costs, has to be costs. [nt]

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-10:07

Which is sad, and if true, a good reason not to buy the watch...

 By: mdg : September 10th, 2020-10:45
...$46,000 and they are saving a few dollars? That's not luxury.

I agree.

 By: roger.goodgion : September 10th, 2020-12:44
Had they done that in blue dial pink gold! Dear lord. My only grip with the white gold one is the same grip with all WG sports watches, it’s kind of a money grab. Price of gold with the look of steel. I prefer my gold to look like gold. I excuse the white... 

I would like to see a yellow gold, blue dial, ultra thin, no date...

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-12:52
That might be snatched up quick by many...

I've always preferred yellow gold to pink gold...

 By: mdg : September 10th, 2020-15:11
...but I like what ALS does with Honey gold...

My Sire, I was thinking the same thing....

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-15:52
Or, just re-release the ultra thin in yellow or rose gold. You would get that, and I’ll admire, πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰.

I guess I have to make one for you to buy, my Sire,

 By: Ted-Lo : September 10th, 2020-16:49
Apologies, but I will have to charge, ahem, a TedLo Surcharge πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘. Discounts if RiRi is a part of the deal, without you involved between us, of course. 🀣🀣🀣🀣

Deal 😁🀝 [nt]

 By: holdemchamp1225 : September 11th, 2020-12:16

Not a fan

 By: mrds : September 13th, 2020-06:52
I think the color combo is too much in your face. Better on the strap but Iβ€˜d still prefer a neutral color dial on the RG case. I think VC does it very well on the blue-dial Overseas Perpetual, where the blue face is broken up with many rose gold accents.... 

Interesting thoughts, definitely β€œlouder” than

 By: Ted-Lo : September 13th, 2020-07:04
It’s stainless steel relative, I am kind of digging the switch to oligarch status when you want to.

Fair enough πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ»

 By: mrds : September 13th, 2020-07:10
To each his own, I certainly have no issues with different tastes.

I’m not convinced [nt]

 By: Jurry : September 19th, 2020-07:44

Not for every one Sire, 😁, I do wonder what full

 By: Ted-Lo : September 19th, 2020-07:56
Gold bracelet would be for me, I feel this may be on my list.
