Veteran got ambushed by VC!

For years I was content with my Veteran Steel Blue Dial VCO Chronograph and never entertained the idea of adding a three-hander. Money well saved, but peace never lasts in the watch wilderness.

Christmas Eve afternoon, I got a call from the VC AD to apologize for letting go of my Cow Horns to another customer when I was unreachable traveling away from home. Then, I am casually asked if I am interested in a VCO, three-hander, blue dial boutique exclusive that just came in, at retail. Christmas Eve, with no present to myself, being offered a three-hander, blue dial, boutique exclusive, at retail, huh, I need to think about this one. Self-justified to me that it is money well spent! So I got in my car, and the rest is history.聽

Does any Veteran have a similar experience?! Is it justified, or was it irresponsible? Negative comments are welcome! What would you have done in this ambush? Honesty is much appreciated! 馃槉馃檹馃徏

Beautiful watch, congrats. I think the question we all have is which car?

You, kind sir, are in a different situation than am I. I don鈥檛 know what that situation is, but I know it is different.聽

Now the watch you got is excellent, and I could see myself purchasing such a watch were I to have the means. As it stands in my current situation, no I would not have purchased it. My finances are such that I am able to afford luxury watches, but it would be in place of some other luxury that would be for the family鈥aybe a hot tub, or a European vacation, or a bathroom remodel. Being my case would be trading something away, I am quite particular that I get exactly the watch I desire when I spend the money.聽

Congrats!! Sometimes, we all need to live a little ;-). For some reason, VC never appealed to me. (Mainly because I can't afford it!) But this design looks amazing 馃槏馃ぉ.聽

You made the correct decision, per the norm.聽

And the truck is great too!聽

Were you ambushed probably, does it matter, not in the slightest , you're obviously very happy with the watch, would I have done it ,in a heart beat .if Rolex rang and told me my GMT was in then said they have sold it by mistake but offered a panda Daytona, would i,100%

I prefer the three hander. Maybe trade the chrono for something a little more gold? Or a little more Patek?聽

It's been a few years since I've trained on counter-ambush immediate action drills, but if memory serves it sounds like you executed the drill perfectly. 聽Well done!
