aside from the authenticity, i would want to know that the warranty and all that is valid, especially on a piece like that in case of service needs.
I wrote that tongue-in-cheek and very quickly recommended a thorough authentication. :)
I was waiting for your reaction to that one, mimo. And I believe Stitchy missed your comment in fine print. :D
Hi Roger, the Day-Date in white metal that was posted was Platinum, and that silver-ish blue dial which is called "Ice Blue" isn't available with any other case metal. Love the color of the dial on that BP, I just have never quite been able to fall in love with a BP.
The white gold is cool and I like its heft, but I wish the blue was much darker.
It is a VC Overseas 47040. A versatile watch that I wear nearly everyday. The bracelet is spectacular, the dial is perfect for me. Sorry I don't quite have a shot with my current getup, as many do in this thread, but I was wearing my lambskin W&H leather at the time of this photo.
Congrats from a fellow VC owner. I have 2 of their dress watches and I adore them. I did consider and look at the Overseas, a PP Nautilus, and some AP ROs. In the end, the RO won my heart, but they are each great watches. Enjoy it.and congrats.
It only mattters if its desirable to you. It doesn't do much for me, but in the grand scheme of things I'm sure you can get one at a good price as they made many of those, and many collectors favor the manual wind Speedmaster Professional.
