Introducing the new Malte Moonphase and Power Reserve

from the press release

 

The new Malte Moon Phase and Power Reserve model displays the assertive personality and elegant style of the creations composing this collection. This refined watch, bearing the Hallmark of Geneva like all Vacheron Constantin models, features a barrel-shaped watch in pink gold measuring 36.7 x 48.1 mm.

Its slender curves topped by discreet lugs frame the dainty moon phase as well as the 40-hour power-reserve indication adorning a silver-toned sandblasted dial that is lightly domed so as to follow the smooth curve of the model. Slender gold hands sweep over this understated display punctuated by hour-markers with the collection’s signature Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock.

Subtly expressing daring geometry and remarkable technical refinement, the Malte Moon Phase and Power Reserve beats to the rhythm of manual-winding Caliber 1410, entirely developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin. Equipped with a high-precision gear train, the moon-phase mechanism also known as an “astronomical moon” requires just one correction every 122 years.

The movement is small, but due to the tonneau shape...the moonphase and power reserve indicator don't look too squeezed in the middle.  Overall it looks good to me.

This is nice. I am guessing this will cost less than the Malte version it

is replacing - the version with Guilloche dial.

I think it is nice to have this model in VC collection. Something for everyone.

However, I still prefer the time-only small-seconds Malte with calibre 4400. I think that has more presence than this one.
