38mm is a good size for a dress watch in modern times. 36mm-38mm is best today, I feel.
And wearing beads next to a watch really isn't on and can scratch a good quality watch as well. Not a good look, ditch it.
Here's my non-vintage version:
Yes, parquetry is a type of wood flooring, though often in similar patterns as used in your watch dials, @cmeynier I think.
There's another one here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VACHERON-CONSTANTIN-Overseas-Model-42042-Wristwatch/311738866920?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D39107%26meid%3D00d269d18a6b4c11a0b741bdcf4e54c9%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D282258529095 Real?

No, Starro is largely right, and that's what this thread should be about...talking about your watches (not just you selling it here). You came here telling us how magnificent your watch is, but there are mechanical watches out there either the same price or cheaper from more dependable and reputable names than yours. It's beholden upon you to back your words up, and so far, you haven't really done that. Your watch isn't bad, as I've said before. It's a sort of PM...
I've used ADs and grey dealers in the past. Just depends on the individual circumstances of the times I've purchased. My most recent kop (BB36) was from an AD in Sydney. PMWs increases the choice of purchase venue for me.
We see a fair few new niche watch brands launched here and via Kickstarter but this is the most unique looking I've thus far seen (the rest are either the same old same old or just ersatz). Welcome aboard and best of luck to you
