New Malte Chrono?

I found this model in a magazine and looks like a new model.
I'm just wondering if this is the replacement for the current Malte Chrono, as priviously talked in this forum.New Malte Chrono?

Hi Taku, Yes and no. This is the new Malte Tonneau chrono which replaces the previous Malte Tonneau chrono (previously called Royal Eagle chrono). The cas, lugs and dial have been reworked. It was introduced at SIHH 2008 click here to read the SIHH 2008 article  The current Malte Chrono (round) when discontinued will certainly be replaced by a model in the Patrimony (either Contemporaine or Traditionnelle) collection. SIHH is only 4 months away....

Hi Alex, Thank you for the input. As SIHH 2008 models, I only forcussed on The Quai de L’Ile, Overseas Chronograph and Chronometre Royal 1907, and the Malte Chrono was something I missed. Like the rest of the Loungers, I'm looking forward to finding a new models at SIHH 2009.
