Sunflower Wrote:I was eager to find "my" Portuguese Chrono Classic during my holiday in Switzerland. On the first evening in Basel I saw one, and I thought: Oh well, there it is. And nothing happened, which got me worried. In Zermatt I saw it again, and it did not sing to me. But there was a strange looking neighbour that caught my attention. I waited a few days, in which I went back a few times, and that neighbour became more beautiful every time I looked at it. At last I went in yesterday, and let me show both watches. There is a big warning here, mentioned before: only trust your eyes seeing a watch for yourself, on your own wrist. On paper, and the internet, the Portuguese was beautiful to me, and will be so for many, I am sure. But not for me. If you have to think about it, don't do it.Which strange other watch caught me unawares? A watch that I liked for some time, but never got around buying due to other priorities. The Vintage Collection Ingenieur. When it became discontinued last year I thought I would never get one. But there it was: a special edition, not with the black dial that I already liked, but with the even more beautiful taupe sunray dial. Taupe, a mixture of grey and a bit of brown, very beautiful, restrained, just for me! Together with those shiny hands and markers, that classic design, the brushed lugs (except a small rim) and the polished bezel, this really is a super watch, and I couldn't be happier still getting such a beautiful version of a watch believed to be gone. See here one wristshot that shows the dial.Kind regards,Paul
