WALTZ N°1 – VIENNESE ELEGANCE AND SWISS PRECISION

Discover the unique automatic wristwatch that combines timeless design with highest-level craftmanship.

MODEL FEATURES

 The pure aesthetics of the Waltz N°1 are inspired by Adolf Loos, a prolific Austrian architect from the early 20th century renowned for mixing minimalism with modern innovations. A true radical with a love of simplicity, his designs were stripped of decoration to leave the purity of functionality. Breaking with the Austrian traditon of excessive decorations, Loos redefined the timelessness of design and architecture, paving the way for architects such as Le Corbusier with their sleek, refined Modernism of the 20th century.

  1. The curvature of the glass is
    carried on to the casing.
  2. The rounded and polished edging
    plays with the contrast of matt
    glazing and reflecting light.
  3. The polished lugs form a line
    parallel to the bezel and carry
    on its reflection.
  4. The curved watch-strap emerges
    from the polished lugs.
  5. The curvatures of the bottom
    and lower glass together form the
    conclusive face of the “Waltz No 1”.
Understated elegance, pure lines, and design coherence mark the Waltz N°1’s case.

Decoration is used sparingly and only emerges on second glance. Two different patterns that were developed exclusively for Carl Suchy are found on the inside of the watch-strap. Corvette Deployant, premium-quality buckle provides comfort and style. It plays with the contrast of matt glazing and light and displays Suchy’s emblem, the double-griffins, on the inside. The watch-strap is made of high-quality silk-matt leather, refined with black seam and a pinch of colour.

DIAL
TAKE THIS WALTZ

The dial of the Waltz N°1 features a guilloché pattern, which is divided in half by vertical and horizontal striping. The rotating small seconds indicator, in the shape of a waltzing disc at six o’clock, is cut out of the striping and is thus aligned with the rest of the dial once per minute as it waltzes in a perfect circle. It’s a tribute to the dancing rhythm of the Viennese Waltz – and to the Viennese Savoir de Vivre, in which the seconds do not count.

MOVEMENT
SWISS PRECISION

Visible through a sapphire crystal case back, Waltz N°1 is equipped with an adjusted self-winding mechanical VMF 5401 movement by Swiss high-end mechanical movement manufacturer Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier, featuring a “Côtes de Genève” finishing and hand-polished angles. This small extra-flat (2.6 mm) masterpiece of complexity features a decentralized gold-plated micro-rotor, allowing for the watches’ slender form, light weight, and great wearing comfort. It runs at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a 48h power reserve. It features just under 200 parts. Exhibiting exceptional craftsmanship in every respect, each Waltz N°1 is masterfully hand-assembled by watchmaker Marc Jenni.
