I've been wearing this one for the past week.

My Malte Chrono in Rose Gold.  One of my favorite manual chrono's.  I love how buttery soft and smooth the winding and chrono pushers feel. I know these were only produced for 5 or 6 years.  Anyone have any idea how many were produced? I had a difficult time locating one so I'm assuming not many.  Fortunately, I found a LNIB condition piece and could not be happier.

Great looking watch and Welcome to the Lounge. I don't have the production details but

True that there haven't been that many. Love the rose gold case which underlines the guillochage dial

This is no seven day wonder!...

Hank, What a great entrance to The Hour Lounge. Your photographs have caught the moment perfectly!

Is this your first journey into the world of Vacheron Constantin? 

There's a lot of pleasurable weeks ahead for you  - enjoy every minute!

Best wishes

Tony

Tony,

Thanks for the response.  This is my 8th VC. I have been collecting since the mid 90's and have owned 7 different Overseas models.  This Malte Chrono however, is by far my favorite to date.

I'm embarrassed to say this but they are all gone to make way for other pieces in my collection. I've had 4 chronos, and 3 time date models. The only one I really really miss is the blue military dial time date model of the original overseas that was a limited edition for the U.S. only (75 pieces iirc) That was a beautiful watch with one of the nicest blue dials I've ever seen.

It was 75 pieces, but I'm not sure if it was for U.S. or North America?

A great watch Hank!
