Nothing much...

I had taken a few shots of the box my VC came in, and I forgot to post them the first time around...
Maybe not worth a whole post in itself, but I guess I'm a sucker for nice packaging...
Who said the best gifts always come in small boxes??

Thanks for looking!

I tried to use it only once, and it scratched a little bit the case around the crown I told VC about it and I'm to send them the winder to get it repaired.  Even if working properly, I would only use the winder if I was to not wear the watch for a few days. Otherwise, I enjoy manually winding the watch every night before going to bed... a nice little ritual
Winder fix

Bonjour Francois Jaime posted a nice fix for the winder problem about a month ago which works well. I tried it and its a very good solution. My winder had the problem of skipping and thus not keeping the watch wound and potentially scratching the crown. But hand winding is better solution as long as you don't have that many to wind. I think that VC should look at another design for this winder (IMHO) Regards, Joseph
Thanks Joseph

I remember that post well, but with my winder the problem is more than having skipping teeth, they are actually all screwed at a high angle so that they rub against the case of the watch itself... but once it is fixed I will definitely use Jaime's ingeneous method!
AP never had success with them either :-(

In the restaurant business this is an accoutrement...
08/28/2008 - 21:54
and only the best of restaurants have accoutrements like this. And only the best of watches should have this one. Best, Miki
well put, I can only agree with you! (nt)

VC understands that the presentation is
08/29/2008 - 03:18
an important part of the product.  Beautiful box for a wonderful watch. As for the winder, I have never dared to try winders for manual watches.  I'll stick to the old-fashioned variety, my forefinger and thumb. Duncan
Great looking presentation case....

I too was impressed with my case and first class packaging that accompanied my VC OSC. But in the end, it is then sitting on a closet shelf with all the other boxes for my collection. I do appreciated the efforts by VC to present my watch in a memorable way. On subject #2, each of us has his own preferences with watch winding. As my watches are all automatics, they are sleeping in watch winders when not in use.  Each has their own specs for directions and tpd. Like them to be ready to wear and dates all set properly. Regards, Matt
while the box for my other watch is stored away in a cupboard,

I have decided to keep this one on my desk, to the great horror of my wife. Having said that, she prefers it to my Star Wars statues
Fantastic Box and Winder!!! Definitely worth posting!

ahhh new QP Malte chrono
08/29/2008 - 12:39
the difference of caracters between the two counters is for me a big design error. I can't support. I allready noticed that on the new chrono Historique. But such a watch on your wrist must be a huge pleasure ! The box is fantastic.  Bravo. Deniz
I do agree with you that
08/29/2008 - 14:06
the previous QP Malte chrono was more sporty/agressive/manly... It is hard to put into words, but it had a certain "hmmph".  I also was heart-broken when I learned that it was being discontinued. And the first time I saw the EP QP Malte chrono, I wasn't too pleased (I must say that it wasn't a really good shot, and it didn't put the watch under its best light), the watch indeed had lost its "hmmph". The approach on the new model IMO is more an ecclectic mix of elegant/modern industrial/art deco. A different approach, but one that I have come to love more than the previous model. To each his own I guess! In fact, in a post I wrote a while back in which I was comparing both models, I was saying that I wished that VC would have retained the hour markers and the square pushers. Having had time to look at my watch for the last few months, I don't think I would change a thing on it now. Even though I still prefer the hour markers and pushers from the 47112, I think that VC did the right thing to change them on this model, they would have clashed with the style/spirit of the watch. The only other hour markers that might have looked better would have been the ones from the Malte QP Retrograde... Thanks for your comments Deniz, I am in heaven everyday (the honeymoon is far from over!!!). Francois 
keep the box but give me that watch in a wrapper and i won't complain.
