Valbray V.01

Valbray have issued a ‘point’ update to their fantastic convertible iris-watch.

You’ll have to make your way to Paris or Monaco to pick up one of the 250 pieces being made though.

The 46mm case is in titanium and 18kt rose gold.

It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back, and is water resistant to 50 meters.

The obturator (cool word – the iris essentially) is comprised of 16 blades with a black multilayer treatment .

Movement is the Swiss automatic V.CA1 (based on the ETA 7750) with 25 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 44 hours.

The rotor is made of 17 parts and sits on ceramic ball bearings.

Love this one.  Do you agree?

Valbray Shutter Convertible

Now this I do like.  Whilst the movement may not be totally high-end (Valjoux 7750 ETA with the rotor being on ceramic ball bearings) I love the shutter style conversion from simple face to revealing a more detailed face below.  These Valbray VR01 models are limited to 500 pieces in titanium PVD and 250 pieces in 18kt rose gold. The case measures 47mm and it is water resistant to 30 meters. Both crystals are sapphire.  Nice!
