Some pictures of the Vacheron Constantin Malte Chronograph in white gold..

 By: amanico : February 4th, 2020-05:00
After having posted the Jaeger Lecoultre Γ  Chronographe and the Patek 5070G, I thought it would not be fair if I didn't post the Vacheron Malte Chronograph, which is pure pleasure to see and an even bigger pleasure to wear. 

I am a big fan of the superb dial. Very nicely made and well balanced. 

The lugs are another big asset of this Chronograph. 

As for the movement... Lemania, which makes me happy. 

I had it and regret to have let it go... 



isnt this is better ornate dial than 5070? [nt]

Almost impossible. As suggested by Bruce, the correct answer is... Both! [nt]

In this case I would go for the Patek for its better finished movement. [nt]

We share so many things in common when it comes to modern watches Nico but here I have to disagree with you...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : February 4th, 2020-07:55
I think the VC Malte Chrono and the newer Corne de Vache is equally finished, if not better than the 5070 (at least to me). I have looked at both extensively with a loupe and for me, I prefer the VC here

I meant in terms of movement finishings. [nt]

Yes I understood your point but again with my eye and a loupe I prefer the VC's movement...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : February 4th, 2020-08:05
that is not even mentioning the case of both the Malte and CdV that I also prefer to the 5070.

I actually prefer the movement layout and finishing of the Duometre Γ  Chronograph to either of these 2 and would put it against the Datograph as best in class of the 4 BIG manual wind chrono πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Of course this leaves out the Double split, Triple split, and possibly the Minervas πŸ˜‰

Agreed. For me as well, Duometre, Lange and MB Minerva Chronographs are the best. Then, the Vacheron. [nt]

Hi Nico, it’s really cool and with your pictures it looks super cool. I got just one picture of the same in PT version.
Cheers Gautam 

That's the one I want to see in the metal for a photo session! Lucky you. [nt]

You sneaky devil πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ˜œ

I absolutely love this VC, even more so than my 5070G as I find it more unique and with more nuances and details for dial and case.

I am a big fan of the case and lugs, I must confess. As for the sneaky Devil in me, I will try to get it out... ;) [nt]

Exactly 😁 of the many reasons I prefer this VC over the PP 5070P and other contemporaries...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : February 5th, 2020-03:56
the small details make all the difference πŸ‘

Agreed that this dial is really something. I am just pesting against that damn Pt 950 written on the dial. [nt]

The platinum model is indeed awesome and I had a chance to choose it over this WG version...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : February 5th, 2020-07:59
but in the end I preferred the dial on the WG version hence my choice πŸ‘

If the platinum model had the same guillochΓ© or even a salmon dial I most definitely would have chosen it over this WG version

You can be happy with your WG, indeed. [nt]
