Once again I've learned. It's amazing the more I listen the more I learn.

Is it safe to say that these "special" timepieces do not go to every dealer?

Is it safer to say that if there were a handful of dealers there's not enough to go around?

And at what dear price, if someone was foolish enough to sell, would one have to pay?

Truely this is not only a mechanical wonder, but also a work of art! Thanx-again, Miki

I have heard that about 20 would be made each year! I guess

thet will be easier to find at the VC boutiques than your local VC dealer!

What is really amazing is the sound of the chimes, when I first heard the watch I was in a room full of people and there was some music in the background and I could still hear it chime distinctively 5i was a few meters from the watch). Furthermore VC has developed a new stiking mechanism regulator which is almost silent making the chimes extremely pure.

I also like the power reserve indicator in the back.

Price is approx 580k Swiss francs !!!

It's obviously an amazing timepiece, but I don't like this tiny indicator for the leap year. I would have prefered a bigger dial or any other system that would have kept the global simmetry of the main dial.

The excentration gives an original touch to this masterpiece.
