the head of the specific market or retailer contacts VC HQ with a

specific request (ie model, complication, design, price etc...) and they work together with the design team.
GREAT APPROACH! VIVA VC!!!

I wonder when the head of a specific market (the Hour Lounge - you, Alex) will contact VC HQ with a specific request (the HL special edition model) and start working on it? Cheers,  Francois

Lucky Russians. This AND the Sputnik :) nt

that's a nice "blast from the past"...

its platinum cousin was the first ever VC I fell in love with: the Malte lugs, the best ever hour markers (IMHO...), and a superb dial. This version is also amazing, I love this color combination! I don't know why, but I keep forgetting about this VC model (one of the last Malte round models...), but every time I see it, it goes straight back into my top 10 list. Thanks for sharing Alex! I'd like to see what else is on your hard drive (talking about VC material, of course)... Cheers, Francois
Russian Nobility on the case back

What a beautiful watch. Was it for Russian Nobility? The insignia is from the Romanov dynasty. Because the 71st Grandmaster of our order was Tsar Paul1, we are permitted to use this insignia in one of our emblems.  The Knights of St John's colours and white Maltese Cross are in the centre. Fascinating! Gary
Yes, the RG and black dial models really rock!

This is a very unique way of displaying the usual perpetual calendar functions and the officer's caseback really lends itself well to engraving. My only pet peeves on this model is that the dial is unnecessarily cluttered by the words "automatic" and "perpetual" and that the rotor could have been prettier (aka, less JLC-ish). Still it is a very nice watch especially in this combo. Thanks for the blast from the past, Jefe. Best regards, Kazumi

I'm with you re the pet peeves

The Perpetual and Automatic writing not only clutter the dial, but since they are printed on the clou de paris dial the outcome is less than optimal (VC however made sure to print its name and Geneve on a flat surface).  But I could suffer the extra writing than the rotor - it is not fitting for a perpetual calendar, you are right on the money when you say that it does look a bit JLC-ish. Still, one of the best VCs ever IMO. CHeers,  Francois
agree, get rid of the stupid writing you don't need to put a users
