Back Site

Wy do VC produce the back Site from the Toledo so simple? By an watch from over 30.000,- Euro they can make an wonderful VC Cross in an Medaille!
Less is more?

I actually love the caseback in brushed platinum...
You mean having an engraving like on the Overseas? I guess

its it could work but the engraving would need to be in relation with the watch

yes, i mean like the OS. i also like the back site from the toledo but by this price you can ask for an better condition! like the VC Cross!
How about posting our favorite back shots?

There are many, especially those with display backs, but I'll start with this OS.  It tickles me that the artwork is a secret to be appreciated by those that know.  It also serves as a reliable indicator of authenticity wink.
You mean like your favourite "pair"??

Here is an example of over-embellishment...
That looks more like 2 pair!

Or perhaps it's a "full house"!!
I second that!

Aesthetically it is the correct choice
07/26/2012 - 23:51
If I am to venture a guess I would say because a circular Cal 1225 would look awkward in a square case. Of course, there are ways around it, but the design would not be ideal. Additionally, the finishes on the rotor of the cal 1225 lack the presence of some of the other finishes of the rotors other automatic movements that come with saphire-backed watches such as the cal. 2450 and 2460 (beautiful giulloche),  the 2460 (partially skeletonised), or if we are to double the price tage the 1120 SQ (amazing skeletonisation). So as an aesthetic decision, I think it is the right call. Plus, as Radek mentioned, the brushed platinum on this particular case-back is a plus - and in my view sublime, even though the Toledo design is not something I am into. Best, Walid
If you look at VCs as works of art

Then you will always have people with differing opinions on design choices that have been made. As you can see, some people believe it is better without a transparent back, others think it should. Is there really a "right" answer.  I think we all decide this with our purchasing decisions. wink Best Regards, Dan
