Would anyone know which movement (JLC#?) that the Malte or Overseas Dual Time is based on?

This one?

Vacheron Constantin caliber 1206 RDT.
Ebauche is Frédéric Piguet 1160,
a version of FP 1150.
Same basic movement in some other complicated VC's,
the perpetual etc.
Lovely momevent when Vacheron has made it's work
This actually has been my daily watch,
this year.

Sorry, didn't read,

but it perhaps is because I like this so much
I believe it's a version of this movement.

It's the same movement as in Malte Eagle DTR,
so it's anyhow VC caliber 1222.

I am always curious about these things. My new Malte Dual Time does not have a display back as that of the VC Power Reserve model that I have.

Hi Kevin,

December 1 2006, 3:03 PM 

it hit me, that you have that movement in your lovely watch
I didn't know that you couldn't see the movement,
anyhow, it's rather meaningless,
when it's an automatic watch.
Have a look at my only(!) pic of the movement,
inside my DTR!



It's most the rotor anyway,
so you actually don't miss so much!

If you want to enjoy a VC movement,
go for a pocket watch instead



Best
Doc

I did not realize that the DTR like yours and the Tonneau DT had the same base movements. I sort of though mine might be JLC based because it has the same sort of winding sound as my Power Reserve model and I think it is based on the JLC 928 movement.

Thanks,

the only thinhg I now ,
know for sure is,
Overseas and Eale DTR has the same movement,
VC cal. 1222, that I have checked.
On the other hand mine is a COSC certified chronometer,
so it could indeed be different ebauchés!
Now it's your turn to move

Overseas and Royal Eagle dual-time models

December 2 2006, 4:39 AM 

I believe the Overseas and Royal Eagle dual-time models use the same JLC-based movements. The time-only Overseas also uses a JLC ebauche but the Overseas chronograph uses an F. Piguet ebauche. Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
Kazumi

Thank you Doc and Kazumi

I have looked a little more into it and it is possible that the 1222 calibre is based on the JLC 929/3. If anyone knows for sure, I would appreciate the information.
