What a beauty..

Thanks for sharing,

best regards,


Gorgeaous!! How come all these really nice pieces are

not regular production models? Ex: the Malte perpetual retrograde for the Russioan market, the Patriminy retrograde for Cortina and this one...

WOW!! and WOW encore!!

How about a trade for my RG Toledo with a cream dial??


Love the contrast between the date ring and the rest of the dial!

Another model I wish was a regular production. 

Of course my regular WG version isn't too shabby either.

Thanks for sharing Alex. 

the Toledo 1952 looks good in any color combination! (nt)

Spectacular, a bit of the future>>>
08/02/2007 - 21:22

but that won't be for a couple more years. A couple more changes to make it a perfect and custom fit!

Best regards,


I knew this would speak to you Tim :-) (nt)
08/02/2007 - 23:05


This one is definitely my favorite
08/03/2007 - 03:26

of the whole Toledo 1952 range... I want it bad!

Alex, you made my day - thanks so much.

I go back to this post where you already mentioned this color combination on a Toledo as a custom made VC piece - you knew before it existed...

RG with a black dial or even better a chocolate dial would be
08/03/2007 - 12:10

stunning! It would be a great Hour Lounge watch

I've just called the VC boutique in Kiev about the watch
08/07/2007 - 13:51

The price is rather on the high end as well - 50K USD. The discount can be discussed with the manager. Oh well, I'll have to let it pass this time and settle for a more regular Toledo... Which in fact I'm chasing at the very moment . I'll let you know in due course.

If I had the funds I would definately go for it. (nt)

Very nice!!

Add a skelentionised VC rotor and it would be perfect

I tried to get VC to 'modify' my toledo but was told that it cannot be done



WOW! VC did it again...
08/03/2007 - 10:19

Really stunning. Btw, Alex I just got my "you know what"... Like you said, gorgeous watch! But...this Toledo is even better I am drooling...

Congrats Rei! Photos and impressions are eagerly awaited :-) (nt)
08/03/2007 - 12:09


I haven't even been able to take pics of my malte chrono
08/03/2007 - 13:33

as I promised you before  sigh

This one is a definite gorgeous, slim and simple and that's the beauty of simple watches. It's got no buttons or busy dial yet the stunning combo of rose gold & black dial (imho, always the best) does it for me.

I haven't worn it tho...

LOL :-) are you punishing yourself by not wearing it? Mine is on
08/03/2007 - 13:43

my wrist as I type

Here's a shot of a few (with date) that I took on my trip to VC.


that's the ultra rare black dial with
08/04/2007 - 14:15

blue case

You guys are punishing ME, Alex.
08/04/2007 - 15:23

First of all, congratulations Rei.  We are waiting for your photos.

I was at an AD today looking at this year's Japanese Limited Edition model (Sorry no pics), but I still couldn't help looking at the Contemporaine manual wind in PG.  While, I was handling it, I couldn't help imagine how cool your boutique versions must look.

Looking forward to the day when I will be able to join the boutique club.  Wear 'em in good health guys.

Thanks Kazumi, just don't wait too long since the boutique models
08/04/2007 - 18:12

will be available only for on year !

Nice Alex! A question...
08/06/2007 - 08:06

I have only wound mine, haven't worn it yet. Waiting for a special occassion

Btw, how many turns does it take to fully wind this watch? The crown is so small, though easy to wind, but hard to feel if it has come to complete stop. I'd say about 60+ turns? Definitely, more than 50 turns.

Thanks for the pics!

p.s. Is it really going to be available for only 1 year? 

I managed to do a little research
08/06/2007 - 12:30

and found the answers (the whole thread) in TZ. All Q's answered now.

Anyway, my Q on production time (1 year) still remains though.

Mine comes with a black strap.
08/06/2007 - 10:35

Did you change yours? Yours is the best combo imho, but black aint' so bad

Yup the boutique models will be avaliable only one year then replaced
08/06/2007 - 12:33

by new models.

I'm gererally not a fan of black straps and often change for a dark blue. However I like the combination of brown strap and black dial and had line changed when I bought it

Thanks for the tip...
08/06/2007 - 17:41

It'll probably take a small miracle for me to be able to get one in time...

Oh well, miracles have been known to happen.

Wow! That's one again!
08/03/2007 - 20:33

A combination I just couldn't imagine,

to become such a stunner!

Even with a hole in it
