This watch is a showstopper, and will most likely be the most unusual and interesting watch that you will own.
The Vice Versa II takes its name from a movement that has been completely inverted. To create the Vice Versa II, the movement is first modified so that the dial can be located on the back of the watch (which is now the front).
If this sounds confusing, expand the picture to the right and you'll notice that the dial and hands are located in the lower left of the watch, and the winding gears, balance cock, swan neck regulator and balance are also clearly visible.
We must admit that watch is the most fun to wind of any we have carried, since it is possible to see all of the movement functions and time display on one side.
What is normally the dial side of the watch is actually the back of this watch (remember the name is Vice Versa II), and the dial plates and other components are elaborately decorated.
Case is in stainless steel and is polished by hand. Black calf leather strap which is attached by screws and features an engraved tang buckle.
Additional features include:
- Traditional German 3/4 plate
- Swan neck fine adjustment
- Screwed gold chatons
- Unique Côtes de Genève pattern
- Perlage on inner plates
- Blued screws
- Hand engraved balance cock
- Movement is rose gold plated
The Thomas Ninchritz Vice Versa is a masterpiece.
