    Now thatís how you do a special edition! (VC for Harrods)

    With all respect to the Tudor green ‘Harrods’ black bay, VC show how a Harrods special edition is done, with 20 pieces of this Traditionnelle.

    Take note Omega, next time you’re thinking about a Bond / Speedmaster LE. I can’t see Harrods written anywhere, maybe there’s something on the back. I guess the green strap is the clue.

    Posted for no good reason at all, given that it’s £26k and firmly in the fantasy league, but even a photo of that dial is worth enjoying!

    NB - sorry if the picture comes out giant, copied and pasted from VC.

    Thank you, another amazing dial, love the texture. Wonderfully restrained branding for the LE on the reverse too.

    The evening standard in the week, Wednesday iirc, had a ,' luxury watch' insert bit and skimming that I noticed Breitling have a green dialed Harrods le navitimer, limited to 50. Like that VC strap though the green was far too bright and nothing like Harrods 'swamp'

    Everything looked right, apart from the hideous left-hand offset second hand subdial.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Stunning. Though prefer the Paris ones, as I have a thing about date windows (I cannot read them most of the time!).

    Doesn't do it for me. I don't like that big expanse of nothing in the lower half of the dial. If they moved the subdial to the 6 o'clock position it would be an improvement. But still a no.

    Agreed - it has the slack jawed look of the recent GS Spring Drive manuals

    The dials on these things are totally next level. Stunning.

    I just hate the date window on it, as it just feels lop sided. The 82172 Paris edition is the one to get.
