    VC Overseas Blue vs Brown

    I Think I've decided on a VC overseas; a grail watch for someone like me. I actually prefer it to the Nautilus and Royal Oak; pricing hysteria aside... plus a bracelet and 2 straps!

    Further narrowing down an intentional, once in a lifetime purchase is color. I think I like the brown; definitely like the blue. Blue seems to be very en vogue at the moment. What will look more timeless in 10+ years?

    I was surprised to discover how fantastic a brown dial can be. I say go brown. Blue is what everybody does.

    Thanks - I may just need emotional support. Blue seems to also demand a premium.

    Blue can be ordered from an AD with usually a short wait. The brown has been discontinued, but it may be possible to still get one from an AD. As for what color, I prefer silver :) Between blue or brown, I would flip a coin. Both are really great.

    Why was it discontinued?

    Jomashop has a new one in silver for 20% off.

    I assume lack of demand. However, the brown is becoming something of a cult favorite. VC has been streamlining their operations (a good thing; they had too many models). A number of watches have been discontinued (ignore what is listed on the website; has not been updated to reflect the changes).

    I just googled the brown model and it’s amazing! Way more attractive than the blue, to my eyes.

    Had the same scenario. Went with black. Couldn't be happier. The blue is trendy but it's no FPJ CB.

    Something to keep in mind, the extra straps match the dial; so if you go blue, you're getting blue rubber and blue leather. Brown gets brown and the silver & black dials get black.

    That might factor into your decision.

    That is true. However, you can order any strap color you like. So there is nothing stopping the OP, for example, from buying the blue Overseas and also picking up the black rubber and strap.
