Congrants on new friend...

November 22 2006, 4:22 PM 

Very interesting tonneau shaped watch. Do you know if it uses the same movement as AP's revised RO dual time? Also just curious what the list price is on that item. I love VC's in rose gold!

Best regards,
Dino

Thanks

I am not sure about if it has the same movement as the AP. The VC # for the movement is 1222. The list price is 23,200 USD. I am with you on the rose gold for this piece.

That M.C Escheresque guilloche pattern on the dial....

is a nice touch...perhaps you could get a macro shot for those here who don't know what I'm talking about.

Congrats on a nice pick-up.

My camera is not that good

I took the original picture in the closeup mode. I tried to get closer, but the picture just looks blurred. I will read the manual for the camera and see if I can get what you want. I know what you mean by the design from the famous artist.

Congratulations!

The dual-time Tonneau got mixed responses when it came out but it is a design that grows on you. I like this tonneau case better than those in the Royal Eagle line, as it is more similar in shape to that of the tourbillion.

It uses the same JLC-based movement that is in the dual time Overseas. I am not sure if this is the same as that in the AP RO counterpart.

I hope you have many wonderful experiences with your new buddy.



Best Regards,
Kazumi

Congratulations. I agree with Kazumi the slightly modified

Malte Tonneau case is nicer than the previous Royal Eagle ones.

The Guillché with the rose gold must look stunning

Congrats Kevin!

If you not have had a dual time before,
you going to love it!
My Malte DTR, has been my steady daily work watch companion.
Classic lines,
and as Bill says the guilloché
Somebody buys Tonneaus, and somebody get rid off them...
See how the lines from my ex, now Alex forever watch,
are still in yours.
That's VC.
Your watch is a good answer to the post below
Best

Great looking watch!

Congratulations on this outstanding piece, it indeed is very beautiful and well-designed. I have another question: which models of the current VC line-up are considered to sport an "in-house" movement, like the new automatic Patrimony?

Thanks and regards,
Peter

in house calibers....

November 23 2006, 1:38 AM 

VC currently has the foolowing in house calibers (I will not include the calibers specially developped for the 250th anniversary pieces but only the ones currently found in the VC collection) :

- Cal 1790: Tourbillon

- Cal 1140 manual wind: Malte grand classique, Patrimony small seconds and Patrimony Contemporaine

- Cal 2450 automatic: Patrimony Contemporaine automatique

All future models are to the extent possible to use the inhouse calibers. VC are also currently working on thier own minute repeating and chronograph movements
