a viciously cool and rarely seen Malte Tourbillon

the US special edition Malte Tourbillon in palladium with a "black platinum" treated movement. The watch was made in 2008 in only 10 and no official photo or document concering it was released.

It will appear for the first time at Antiquorum's Sept 15 auction in New York - lot 212 with an extremely conservative $60,000-$90,000 estimate.

I have a favor to ask the Loungers in NY, if you go to the pre auction exhibition please take some live photos, I've never seen the watch and it looks AMAZING a viciously cool and rarely seen Malte Tourbillon

One of the coolest I have ever seen! $60,000 to 90,000 is certainly conservative, I would not be surprised to see it go for considerably more. Thanks for sharing Alex! Hopefully someone will bring back some live photos. Best, Mike
that is one bad VC for all it's worth...

I wouldn't mind swapping my RG version for this ultra modern Malte Tourbillon...
I just updated my post with live scans! And the watch is SUPERB!!

bolder as each year passes. Traditional is great, but traditional allied to avant-guarde is horological pornography - like this watch!!
I had the pleasure of seeing one of these in person....

....too bad it was for all of one minute before it was taken away. I agree that it will soar past the estimate. And that Radek should make a play for it! :-) Bill
reading my mind Bill even though we're worlds apart... ;-))) (nt)

Really beautiful, the "black platinum" gives the watch such a depth

that I am drawn in even deeper than usual. I don't need a rescue. I think the winning bidder will by hypnotized for sure! Thanks for the look and good luck bidders. Best, Tim
Re: Malte Tourbillon - the original is uncomparable

Very beautiful and discrete. However, my preference is for the original model in red gold. Superb!
Uber Cool! Unfortunately I think I'd have a tough time reading it :-(

Maybe I need a minute repeater, so that one of my senses can help another?   BR, Dan
