WALTZ N°1 SKELETON

The Carl Suchy & Söhne Waltz N°1 Skeleton comes in an edition of 5 exclusive watches. The unique dial opens the view to the sophisticated skeletonized ultra-thin automatic movement, while its aesthetics retain the brand's fundamental visual identity. This Skeleton Edition gives pride of place to the synergy of cutting-edge design and technical watchmaking skill.

DESIGN: CARL SUCHY & SÖHNE‘S DNA Honoring the brand's DNA, the skeletonized dial of the Waltz N°1 Skeleton features the rotating second disc at 6 o'clock with a striped guilloche-pattern that aligns with that of the dial once a minute. The subtle lines and classic dial of the Waltz N°1 Skeleton, as well as its openworked guillochage, were inspired by the minimalist style of Austrian architect Adolf Loos, one of the precursors of modern architecture.

MOVEMENT: 5401/180 SKELETON AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT Held in stunning black PVD, the VMF5401/180 caliber movement’s slender plate and bridges are rhodium-plated and are finished with careful precision by the hands of master craftsmen, which increases its preciousness. Each bridge and the main plate haves been openworked and beautifully decorated in the finest detail. Numerous internal angles adorn the main plate and bridges, requiring hours of work to decorate each piece by hand. Visible through the dial and glass case back, the off-centered micro-rotor is incorporated directly into the main plate and provides 42 hours of autonomy.

Model Features

Honouring world-famous Viennese architect Adolf Loos, Waltz N°1 features clear lines, minimalistic design and high-quality materials.

  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. And the curvatures of the bottom
    and lower glass together form the
    conclusive face of the “Waltz No 1”.

Design inspired by Adolf Loos can also be found at
the divide of bezel and casing.

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 form of a waltzing disc at six o’clock, is cut out of the striping, and is thus aligned with the rest of the dial as it waltzes in a perfect circle once per minute. It is a tribute to the dancing rhythm of the Viennese Waltz – and to the Viennese savoir-vivre, in which the second does not count.

At the back of the watchcase the traditional elements of Loos’ design are translated into a modern watch.
