LE Malte Tourbillon, also is some form of black.
I look forward to seeing this new Malte Tourbillon soon. Can't wait.
for a NAC-treated case on next year's Overseas
I envision Dean's watch being completely NAC treated. Every piece, every surface. The Poncoin de Ampersand.
I was just in Geneva last week on a group trip for a factory visit. During the collection presentation the regular edition Malte tourby was presented. I had to sit down and just hold the watch. Lay it on my wrist. I was totally consumed by its beauty. I loved everything about that watch. Including all th contrasts Hard to say about ths edition. But. I will take the regular one in a heartbeat
on another note, I stoppd by the Geneva boutique. The MR,tourby,perp Gray dial was available. First one I saw that was a working piece. What a sound and what a watch
two live pix to enjoy
Wish I was there with you!
I forgot to set the watches to th same time. I did I wind the tourby, and boy does it wind nice. I just never thought to make it the same time. Bah! There are so many nice new things I could have out on four watches at a a time. Is that Quad time?
Fantastic watches, Joe!
They all look great great on your wrist(s).
Looks like you had a wonderful time. Can't wait to hear all about it.
were at VC, would have been great to meet!
I was hoping you would be at the lunch with JCT
It reminds me of the black nickel Malte Tourbillon (Regulator), whihch I believe was for Singapore as well several years ago?
Is this the first time the VC has ever used NAC? I'm just wondering if NAC was used on the Mecaniques Gravee novelties that were uses this year? I remember there was black plating as well in order create color contrast with the engraved portions (which were only 0.2mm in depth).
Like Dan, I am interested if there are other NAC pieces, or if this is a completely unique treatment. It creates a great look. If you think about the possibilties of having movement parts treated with various finishes, you could have an amazing number of color/finish combinations that create new dimensions to the artwork.
Very interesting use for NAC. I wonder how someone stumble across its use for treating metal.
It's a phrmacological compound (amino acid derivative), that has antioxidant properties and is a powerful mucolytic agent (used for breaking up mucus).
It's also been used to treat acetominophen (tylenol) toxicity (especially of the liver). It's also been used to treat quite a variety of disorders.
Any idea of the mechanism of action on metal?
Fascinating! Something new every day!
Had no idea about its medical use!
THanks Alex for sharing, must be something in real :)
