Is this image a model or the actual movement?

Alex Ghotbi, in your fantastic article here in the Hour Lounge titled "Massive Attack-Vacheron Constantin's Most Complicated Timepieces", your have a section on the "Patrimony Traditionnelle Cal 2755 – 8 complications - 2007. In that section is a at an angle image of the top of just the movement....The URL of the image is....

Is this image a model or the actual movement?

I was wondering if that image is of a larger model of the movement, or is it the movement itself. I ask, since if it is the actual movement, than the finishing on its parts is more amzing than i had imagined....Very curious. (In case the image URL does not work, the image in question is the top left image in the article section on that particular watch.) Thanks a bunch for more info on that amzing image.
PS, and to further my confusion about the image....?

On the web site where one orders your book on the Caliber 2755, link of that image is here...http://www.watchprint.com/detail/1428.jpg ....the movement image looks entirly different than the first one I am asking about in your Hour Lounge article i referenced....Even taking into the acccount that it may have some layers of parts not there, the 2 movments look entirely different.....So it makes me wonder what is the image that I am asking about in your "Massive Attack-Vacheron Constantin's Most Complicated Timepieces" It is a geat image but confused as to exactly what it is an image of :) Thanks
the cover photo of the Cal 2755 book doesn't show the perpetual

finish is truly amazing!
Ah, thought it was not the actual movement....

Amazing 3D rendering however.....So the angled image of the Caliber 2253 also in that article I would imagine also is a 3D rendering? Thanks for the additonal image :) I make computer art myself, and appreciate the effort to make a 3D rendering like that one.....
same for Cal 2253. Here's a real life photo of the 2253

Just saw 2 YouTube movies of fly-through of both 3D renderings

....pretty amazing videos. So, do they make these awsome 3D renderings at the VC factory to see how they work, even before they make any actual movments?
the engineers and constructors work on 3D but it doesn't look

anything like the videos.  These 3D images and videos which you have seen are made after as communication tools
