I actually really wanted to try this on, because I've not seen the black ROC up close before, and wanted to see how it feels.  In the context of my crush on the VC Overseas Chrono, I also wanted to have a quick comparison in mind with its nearest rival.  It is indeed most awesome, though as I think I've speculated before, they are very different animals.  Especially with the black dial, there is an air of intense seriousness about the ROC.  The razor-sharp edges everywhere, if not uncomfortable, are certainly not designed to be friendly.  The VCOC is a lot more cuddly and subtle (despite Dino's dislike of its excess malte motifts), whereas this, especially in its more recent 41mm size, is directly and overtly looking for a fight.  It is very, very cool, and definitely desirable.  They are too different to choose easily, and "both" would again be the obvious TWAT logic.




But why hide that movement away?  So does the VCOC.  Ordering a display caseback should be factored in to purchase of either maybe, unless you're just too tough to care. smile.gif

I guess that is what happens when the same movement is simply placed in a larger case. I have no problem with the larger case size, but the pictures show what happens when the same movement is used.

I'm sure it is a beautiful watch as is my own RO but the overall layout suffers here IMO.

Just for you, Stitchmeister. :)

 

And just one more round of ogling to share today: they had one Lange.  And it might even be fair to call it the Lange.  And certainly, this is "back", baby...
