Musings on New & Improved VC Website and Related Question

I’m probably late to the party and this might be old news to most, but yesterday I went to VC’s website for the first time in a year, and… Whoa! What improvement from the previous version, I am really impressed by it!

Les Masques and QdI websites were pretty impressive, but the main website was in need of some serious upgrading… I really like how it is easy to browse through each model, and to have more than one picture per watch. I also love the related videos for each watch (I especially liked the one for the caliber 4400)

A few interesting facts to point out:
VC has in total 155 models – this number of course includes the different metals as well as the “blinged” versions, but still it is a lot more than I would have guessed.

VC has now almost completely phased out the round cases out of the Malte collection, with only 3 models remaining (Retrograde Perpetual Calendar, Dual Time Regulator and Date & Power Reserve)… The end of an era…

Which leads me to my question (in fact, the same question that I asked a year ago): will this year be the year that VC introduces the Fourth Pillar of its core offering? I would be keen to see some rectangular VCs…


true the VC website has undergone an immense transformation. As for

the 4th pillar consisting of square/rectangular watches I don't think we will see it in the short furure...if at all.

there's already enough killer pieces in VC's offering that I'll survive without the 4th pillar... ...but it would have been interesting to see VC's take on a square/rectangular model. Dear Alex, since it might not come out at all, is there any chance you could convince Christian or Vincent to share with us one or two of their concept sketches to see what it could have looked like? Pretty Please? Cheers, Francois

The Toledo is basically square and since the website list the wrong current caliber and number of jewels it is even squarer.
