the cat's out of the bag: US edition Malte Tonneau chrono rose gold

The Hour Lounge is probably the first and only medium where these watches are seen as they were not publicized!

End of 2007 Vacheron Constantin released a limited edition Malte Tonneau chronograph specially made for the US market.

A chocolate dial, silver subdials, red numerals on the subdials and red chrono seconds hand. The watches come with a brown croc strap with red stiching as well as an extra rubber strap.

Radek posted below scans of the steel model (100 pieces)

chocolate dial with a rose gold case is a killer combo!!! red numerals on the chrono ont subdials, red seconds hand as well as red stitching on the strap - yummy...

it has a rubber strap to it!!! does that mean all other Royal Eagles can be equipped with it?

don't know up to what point a rubber strap would be readily

Oh Baby...What's not to love about this one?

Then again I love red stilettos, just not on me.

I had to qualify that before Doc got me. Best, Miki

LOL Bluto, good one :-) (nt)

I think I prefer the Steel version...

...to be honest I am a little bit disappointed by the RG version.

I didn't reply to Radek's post from a few days ago, but  REALLY like the steel version. I love the mix of the brown and red on the dial and on the strap. The strap is really cool and gives the watch a much more sportier look... When I heard that there was also a RG version, I had really high hopes - RG goes a lot better with the brown/red combo than steel...

But looking at it, I think there is too much white on the dial. IMO it would have looked much better with a completely brown dial, limiting the number of colors to 3 instead of 4.

It is still a nice watch, but I guess my expectations were too high...

Nope !
