I bought a Voumard 2000 for $125US (turned to $140 AUD shipped). It was advertised for $150 but I put in an offer and it was accepted within ten minutes. Makes me wonder how low I could have gone?!
When I found out that the movement in the Voumard (which is very innovative in itself w/ caseback crown) could be aligned any which way within the case, I was hooked. I immediately searched eBay and found a few, one of which was a really good example. Seller's pictures below.
I've always wanted a dRiving watch. The only options I could find were 50mm pocket-watch-turned-watch, Vacheron's 1921, and BREED's awful, gaudy homage of the VC.
Looks good, right? I thought so too.
Here's how I'll have my dial orientated:
(A driving watch being one where 12 is at 1:30-2 - I don't know if that's what they're actually called but I'm not too fussed, it's the look I'm after).
Going to buy a rally strap for it and that'll be that. I'll post pictures once it arrives but that won't be for about a fortnight.
How did I do?
