BTW the buckle is not original

What a watch!!!

How many of this were produced, Alex?

a bit too bling-bling (and oval in the wrong direction) for me (nt)

Interesting watch although I could do without the diamonds.  I have seen pix of this skeleton movement used in a few different shaped cases.  I actually liked how it looked in a square case, and usually I prefer form movments in sqaure cases but they did such a nice job of accentuating that it is a round movement in a square case that I'd love to get one someday. 

Thanks for posting a rather interesting VC.

Best regards,


Not my cup of tea

Just kidding. Should be sent to a museum of 50s-60s UFO/science-fiction design where big roundish bluish doors and furniture were the future.

This watch was either too early or too late for its time, or never actually had a time for it. Well, at least they tried. You'd never find something like this "chez Patek", which is why I prefer VC: the unexpected.
