now for something heavy duty...um..light...well decide for yourselves

Go to spend some time with the Skeleton Malte Tourbillon and one word comes to mind: WOW!!

In general I'm not a huge fan of skeleton watches, I appreciate the immense amount of work and talent that goes into one but I don't like being able to see the hair on my wrist when looking at my watch now for something heavy duty...um..light...well decide for yourselves (not that I would say no to a skeleton minute repeater mind you...just incase anyone had the fantastic idea of giving me one for Christmas now for something heavy duty...um..light...well decide for yourselves )

What I particularly like about the Skeleton Malte Tourbillon is the fact that the movement is thick and the skeletonizing work truly gives a 3 dimensionality to the watch whic is extremely appealing and modern.

Judge for yourself (click on the photos for a larger view)

Alex

I really like this one as well

Truly exquisite

And that is what I love V&C for,

a truly masterpiece-like finish. A great timepiece... available to few but a dream watch for many.

I might not be the biggest fan of V&C skeletons but it is hard not to admire them for the work and effort accumulated in them. Still the price is way out my range and it is better to have a clean conscience  

not my cup of tea...

just because I prefer simplicity and skeleton watches always look too busy dials.

Just my 2cts.

Absolutely stunning...

in my book they are simply the best in the business when it comes to skeleton work.  Now if only they had some "free samples." 

Best regards,

Dino

Absolutly WONDERFUL!

My dream is to see this watch in the configuration of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Skeleton Perpetual Calendar; ie totaly transparent

Absolutely AMAZING!!

I'm with you Alex on this one: while not a huge fan of skeleton watches, this one is to die for!... I also loooove its very modern looks! Apart maybe/hopefully from the HL special edition, I really want my next VC to be the Malte Tourbillon model. I think I will follow in Joseph's footsteps and get the RG model(still prefer it to the skeleton version...) Thank you Alex for posting such nice pictures :-)

Whatever our feeling is, one can only admire the whole work done to get it; it is art, combined with a lot of cabinotier jobs.

What some people can do...

But personnaly, I am not a great fan of this kind of watch.

Alex, is it not to difficult to read?

Alex, how many hours for One of this Time Piece?
11/28/2007 - 22:33

.

you mean how long to make? All I know is that the tourbillon bridge
11/28/2007 - 22:35

takes 11 hours to fiish!! and the movement about a week just for the engraving work!

surprisingly its rather legible (nt)

Engraving is not my cup of tea but ....

a huge work when you know that the pieces have not to be disformed, allways to be planned.

The finish of the tourbillon cage is awesome. I loosed twice the possibility to shoot a Malte Tonneau Tourbillon. but I know that I will do it one day. It will be great.
