    Final (?!) purchase for 2013: Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph (49150) !

    Dear fellow watch afficionados,

    As witnessed by the topic title, I've just ponied up for this beauty (pic sourced from WWW):



    A 2009 VC Overseas Chronograph, ref. 49150, 42 mm, with the white guilloche dial, inclusive of all original paperwork and boxes !
    Yes, my collection is getting a bit chrono-heavy now, but it's my favorite complication ....

    To be brutally honest, I was a bit hesitant about this purchase, because (i) I have never purchased such an expensive watch unseen (albeit from a Chrono24 trusted seller), (ii) I think I would have slightly preferred the black dial version on this one, although without having done a side-by-side comparison in the steel, this is just a hunch .... but this was too good a deal to pass up ....

    If any of you have any hands-on experience with this watch, I would love to hear from you (quality wise, will it be a cut above the rest of my collection, even the JLCs ?!)

    In the meantime, I will be sleeping next to the front door waiting for the doorbell to ring, fingers crossed ! Will post wrist shots in due course, of course

    Thanks for looking and have a great weekend !

    Cheers,

    Pieter

    Beautiful watch.....If you like the black face.....Can of spray paint,couple of minutes....I advise
    letting it dry well between, I'd say 2 coats....
    Be sure to include pictures....B/4 and after painting....

    I think you'll be happy you got the white face when you see it in person. The guilloche on the VC Overseas has a really nice dimension and sparkle in the steel that I think is lost in black to some extent.
