I think there is an appreciation of the Lemania movement itself, as well as how finely the watchmakers at VC finish it, for all the watches that VC has produced using it (Historiques Chronograph/Malte Chronograph/Patrimony Traditionnelle Chronograph) to be valued by collectors. One thing I'm sure of is that the new in-house chronograph movement will not be inexpensive. Bill
the case Lange's datograph would be breaking all records at auction!!! I personnaly don't think that the new VC chrono movement would have an adverse impact on the desirability of the Lemania based ones as the latter will remain a historically important movement.
