Logic would suggest a new offering in the Malte line, but my personal wish is for a classic tonneau watch like the one at the upper left corner of the image (perhaps in the historiques line-up)...with a form movement visible from the back of course! I am not too optimistic about this wish of mine but I am sure VC will come up with some wonderful surprises as they always have! Bon courage to the entire VC team! Kazumi

a continuation of the modern VC legacy that began with the re-introduced 1003/3 and 1120 calibers - namely, a shaped manual caliber like the vintage 435 to inhabit a lovely tonneau case (and perhaps retrofitted into the Aronde wink).  The vintage piece shown 2nd from the left reminds me of an aesthetic issue; if the dial was to feature similar large luminous Arabic numerals, I hope they are truly luminous and not the faux-look of the 1921 NY Boutique edition.

Well Alex, I think it will be.....a watch! devil And... it will be a tonneau! My favourite for a recreation is a beautiful triple-stepped bezel tonneau from the 1920's. It in the book "The World of V-C" but you have to look for it. Anyway its a very elegant design. To put that in a larger case with a modern manual (yes manual) movement would be ideal. JB

Hi again, Sorry, I couldn't find the one I was referring to. But there are quite a number of very interesting case designs during that period (1918-1935). If you have the book its worth looking over in detail. I di post a photo of that watch over a year ago but i don't remember the thread.

That is courageous to make a shaped watch. Few brand make it, that's a good way to go against fashion. If there is a shaped caliber it will be perfect. The aronde is such a beauty heart I wait for it.
