    I love VC and if I could afford one of the big three, VC would be it but those are awful.

    I would choose the most expensive of the bunch (assuming it was a gift ) sell it and buy a current Overseas chrono or a piece from Les Historiques collection.

    Yes yes and yes.

    Put a gun to my head and I'll put on C the dress watch. The tool watch is sufficiently derivative that some seventies loving loon would wear it happily. The last watch I admire for being such a bad idea brought to such gloriously wasteful life. The diver is dogmeat.

    Would you stare intently at the centre of the dial and hope your peripheral vision was having a bad day? Also, be sure not to be wearing anything remotely loose knit, and don't run your hand through your hair

    I'd probably take D if I had to take one just because it is insane.

    A is just too silver that if you get it into real light it would just be a silver disk on a strap. So it's only good for vampires. B would get some wrist time and seems like the only real option IMO. C might get a once a year wear to some event that you don't know anyone at. D is a great candidate to be tucked in the very back and bottom of your watch drawer never to come out again. It is truly hideous.
    Cheers,

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    Perhaps this version would be more muted?
