Watches & Wonders opens its doors in a week. What would you like to see launched?

Watches and Wonders which has become the largest haute horlogerie fair in Asia opens its doors to the public on Sept 30. Lats year Vc unveiled the Cal 1731 minute repeater there.

I am bound to be right eventually

Contemporaine in RG with Black Dial Boutique Edition); the promise of Traditionelle Day Date Power Reserve in RG; and something interesting at the VC entry-mid level - a time only watch with PR (for example) as mentioned by Tourbillon in earlier post.

I would like to see something at the VC entry-mid level which is simple but interesting for guys like me who own the Traditionelle. And a piece that will not cost an arm a leg and possibly an organ ! Because the last two years most VC launches were at the extreme high-end.  These entry-mid level pieces are INMO very important to VC.  Maybe a third piece to go alongside the Patrimony and Traditionelle. Maybe part of one of these families.

Other than this, difficult to speculate as the Real stuff is only going to be launched in SIHH 2015.

Interestingly, I read an interview / article of Domique Bernaz is a leading watch publication where he mentioned that it is quite possible that VC will have the world's most complicated timepiece by year-end - a Les Atelier Cabinotier piece.  My bet is that this is the Tivoli. Whether this is the most complicated or not depends on what PP brings out next month.

Surprises

Actually I do not expect much because of the timing (175th anniversary of another brand that will be largely covered in the day to come after) ... but I hope good surprise, charmful watches, maybe some métiers d'art.

I am going to hope for something that leverages some of VCs strengths...

Maybe a new retrograde model, not in Patrimony line. Something tonneau perhaps?

Maybe another alternate display of time.  Feels about time for a spiritual successor to the Saltarello, no?  An updated jump hour with retrograde minutes - maybe with a date and PR to round it out?

Since it is all phantasy, I make it white metal with a guilloché dial. Even better for me (sorry Alex) would be a black or very dark dial. 

a steel Quai de l'Ile, Overseas dual time with blue dial and as others said something with

a medium complication..which wouldn't cost an arm!

I also go for the in-house chrono Alex :-)
