So what was your favorite SIHH novelty?

It was a tough choice between the Malte Tourbillon and The Patrimony Traditionnelle 14Day Tourbillon (yup I like tourbillons) but the 14 day power reserve and the dial of the latter won me over

I think I will go with both the VC Tourbillons. I do like the simplicity of the Malte Tourbillon. In this age of mega and giga tourbillons, it is nice to see a simple tourbillon.

I really loved the look, feel and heft of the Malte 100th anniversary edition but my heart flutttered in the presence of the Métiers d’Art Les Univers Infinis – Fish.   It was great to see you again and to meet Dan and it was a real pleasure to see the novelties in person.
It was great meeting you as well!

Your 2 favorites are mine as well!  yes Though I will add the Malte Tourbillon to make mine a Top 3 list. Ken, related to a different post - thanks for showing me the pictures you took of the Paris Opera House when we met...gorgeous shots! Best Regards, Dan

the Métiers d'Art, but which one? I can't decide that, although either the fish or the starfish. Best, respo

Metiers d'Art theShell watch, I like art and somewhat simple watches incredible the unique, absolutely gorgeous work that went into creating the dial. Way to go Vacheron!

A clear choice and a runner-up

For me, the big winner was: I really wanted to like the Doves more (having seen the photos of the Only Watch), but the more muted colors took a bit away from it, IMHO. The runner-up for me (and a watch that I would dearly love to own, if only it didn't present a challenge with regard to my quite new OS SS/Ti on bracelet) is this beauty -- sorry for the poor photo, but it's what I could get under the conditions: Was it Alex who said "blue is the new grey?"  If I were buying an OS with the "full" steel case (as opposed to having the Ti bezel and pusher guards) I would strongly prefer this blue-dialed version to the white and black dialed ones.  A really, really crisp look.  My only reservation would be about how well the blue would stand the test of time on the wrist -- over the past 18 months I have sold two blue-dialed watches because they were just too vivid after a while. There were other pieces I liked quite a bit as well, but for me these were the big 2. Best, GaryG
You noticed the Fish watch is blue too, right!

I just came from the VC boutique in NYC on Saturday. VCs tourbys are so beautiful. But I asked to place an order for either the fish or shells. Finally you can get a single piece vs a set! I can't make up my mind yet. I knowi have to hurry!

I was very impressed by the "les Univers Infinis" collection combining different watchmaking decorative arts of enamelling, engraving, guilloché and gemsetting. My winner is the FISH WATCH for his graded shades of Blue and Grey. Congratulations to Vacheron Constantin to always surprise us with "les Métiers d'Art". Cheers, Liger
Love those two...
