Vianney Halter's Steampunk Trio Grande Date

Damn, I love big boxy watches! Especially when they look like Victorian time machines.

Another one of my many spotlights of the living legend, Vianney Halter and an homage to his 'Trio Grande Date'. The third model of his 'Futur Anterieur' collection, a curved rectangular case of white gold with four riveted portholes for time, Petite Seconde hand, and Grande Date. All housing a specifically designed calibre VH205 40 jewel automatic movement. The balance wheel frequency is 28,800 oscillations per hour with a power reserve of 60 hours.

Like his Antiqua, it's a Steampunk relic of the future.
