    Vacheron overseas dual time pototype

    This is one of the nicest things I have seen for a while, hope they produce something similar.

    I like the dial finish, something a bit different from the normal rolex and patel offerings.

    I like that a lot. The colour combination looks suppers. The rotor ... wow.

    Gen 3 model with one of their ambassadors. This is the first Gen 3 I've seen with titanium and it looks better then the Gen 2 version, that's not normally the case.

    They should release this style even if its not with the engraved rotor without having to go through Les Cabinotiers.

    Adding the pictures into the thread

    Love VC and wished they do 39mm.
    It doesn't wear too big but spending that sort of money, I need to be sure it's perfect.

    While I like the dial texture and indices, the whole 'package' IMO lacks the refinement one would expect from VC. GMT hand is too short for my liking, there is no need for displaying the whole date wheel, a simple, square window at 6 o'clock would do nicely. Same goes for AM/PM indicator which could be done in the form of a round 'punched' hole at 9 or 3 o'clock.. Also, I think the hour hand could be a tad wider for easier readability. Just a thought.

    Iím not 100% convinced by that dial layout but the finishing is impressive and itís a very tasty piece overall.

    I like it, I think the colour combo works really well and the titanium looks awesome.
    Lovely.

    would like this a lot more if it was 38mm. Really like the strap and dial texture.

    Stunning

    Always amazes that with the amount of new models which are pumped out by the industry that only a few are standouts and this is one of them.

    Produce this in steel on a bracelet. Wow!

    So for those of you who either enjoy your Vacheron's or admire the brand, this watch went up for auction yesterdy.

    Estimate
    $20,000 - 40,000 ē
    CHF19,900-39,800
    Ä18,100-36,300
    HK$156,000-313,000

    Safe to say I didn't win the bid but whoever did has a unique VC OVERSEAS.

    I do like VC - that one though - not so sure about.
