the VC id really like to own is one of their retrograde models. i love the symmetry and look of those models.
If its the retrograde Patrimony, its a watch that just doesn't work for me. I don't care for the days spelled out and arching across the bottom of the dial. I prefer their Quai De L'ile retrograde annual calendar dial layout, although, I'm not in love with its case shape. So chances are if going for a retrograde watch, I'd opt for a different company's offerings.
Yes, I just don't like how they handled the days on that model.
I like those retrograde that are from the mid 1990s, far more than the Patrimony or Quai De L'ile. I haven't seen one in person in a while, but they were nice watches.
The RNs do look nice on that one. I'll have to check my reference materials. Off the top of my head for some reason I had been thinking it used a F.Piguet movement as a base, but now that you brought up JLC, you could be right.
Thanks for checking Stitchy...I must have had a senior moment thinking it might have used an F.Piguet. Silly me!
VC retrograde feature looks great!
Had a lovely time today viewing the installation of the spire on top of One World Trade Center here in downtown NYC. Weather cooperated, skies were a gorgeous blue, and daughter and I loved being outdoors. Had to dress appropriately blue as well, and the 5711/1A's dial fit in quite elegantly, IMHO.
