Thinking of what could be next product in VC, I thought it could be Malte.
Historiques and Métiers d'arts are always wonders and surprises from VC.
Patrimony, Overseas and Quai de l'Ile are still recent and really great watches.
Even if Malte was recently modified I find it still a little souvenir from the past years. It is very traditionnal and not my prefered collection, I must say, but some love it.
Wo why not something complementary, a Malte Contemporaine?
Taking a break, I had fun trying to design and respecting Vacheron codes:
-It shoudln't be a big watch but a small one making it charming and discreet, otherwise it is too much with such a design imho
38mm wide with 45 mm from lugs to lugs)
-Platinum TV case with some little brushed straight surface on the lugs. It is modern but not too bold for a contemporary collection (or?).
-A typical brushed salmon dial (maybe not easy to see but differently brushed parts, Sun, Vertical, circle)
-Hands are not far from "sword hands" I loved and a bit more modern.
-As the traditionnal Vacheron buckle, the crown should be also in this spirit of VC details.
I love the maltese cross and after all it is the name of the collection, so I played a lot with it, on the case dial and crown.
Do you like it? Would you buy it?
Don't hesitate to be hard
