WALTZ N°1 SKELETON

The Waltz N°1 Skeleton is the successful declination of the classic Waltz N°1. Honoring the brand’s original DNA, the dial has been carefully openworked along the subtle horizontal and vertical lines and is adorned with the iconic rotating seconds-disc at 6 o’clock, which features the identical guilloché-pattern and is thus aligned with the rest of the dial as it waltzes in a perfect circle once per minute.

The dial’s open lines reveal just enough to anticipate the refinement of the ultra-thin skeleton automatic movement VMF 5401/180 by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier. At the case bottom, the transparent sapphire glass fully displays the movement’s slender black PVD bridges and angles that have been finished by the hands of master craftsmen in hour-long meticulous precision work. The movement is powered by a decentralized micro-rotor, which is expertly finished with the same perpendicular vertical and horizontal striping as found on the dial and provides 42 hours of autonomy.

The Waltz N°1 Skeleton design fluidity was inspired by Austrian architect and designer Adolf Loos, who introduced the golden age of Viennese Modernism. Viennese elegance can be found in every detail of the watch – from the curvature of the sapphire crystal, which matches the side profile of the 41,5mm case, to the sleek integrated lugs, and the applied minute and hour indices, which are set into the dial itself and curved upward to match the slope of the rehaut as it meets the baseband.

The Waltz N°1 Skeleton Special Edition 2018 is limited to five timepieces – three silver dials and two black PVD dials.
