biw Wrote:You have some of the best shots of this watch Bill B. (especially the closeup of the moon phase). Looks like you use a light box? Can you share some of your techniques, especially your lighting?
Bill B. Wrote:The VC Portofino is 46 mm as you noted, but it is a thin watch at 11 mm. The Big Pilot is 46.2 mm and 15.8 mm thick. I have a relatively normal size flat wrist. The VC fits very comfortably. Since it is thin, it fits nicely under shirt cuffs.

RayinLA Wrote:Thanks all, this is definitely a fun piece to wear. I am well aware of the past discussions related to the crown size and the availability of a large crown (though unclear what the costs are and how long it takes for a replacement). I am also aware of the postings here with simple attachments. Here is my 20-cent solution, not sure if a $10k watch is worthy of this treatment but this screw anchor is the best thing I could find lying around. It fits over the crown perfectly without touching the case, with some practice the crown can be pulled out, and the anchor can be released easily. I will look into a crown upgrade one of these days.Cheers,Ray
