By TLex Another masterpiece from the maestros! Introducing the Patriot from Vintage-VDB. Its brushed Stainless steel case measure an imposing 49mm in diameter.

Aloft the sweeping lines of its hand-sculpted case sits a large knurled (60 click-type) bezel with a black inlay and a single (vintage-orange) luminous pip at 12 o'clock.

The knurled bezel is complimented by a large knurled, VDB-signed crown that is nestled into an integrated crown-guard at the unusual position of 8 o'clock.

The Patriot has been produced in a series of just 4 watches. Each are powered by vintage Rolex 618 calibers as used by Panerai back in the day!

The Patriot I shares the same case, bezel and crown as the Patriot, but with a PVD finish. It is powered by an old school Angelus caliber, another type of movement used in historic Panerai watches.

Special features of the Patriot I include: a hand-painted sandwich dial. Just 2 examples will be produced.

Shown here the Patriot is presented on a handmade leather strap attached to welded lugs. Follow the link embedded below for more info. on this and other Vintage-VDB creations . . .
