Here is a piece of VDB History! Extremely rare and collectible T-Edition Tantal with extremely rare Rolex Caliber 745 Movement and even rarer black/blue Rolex rotor! The below article was posted in Oceanictime Magazine October 2012! The ONLY T-Edition ever made by VDB! Featured in the Vintage VDB Book Of Legends!


Another beauty from the German ateliers of VintageVDB. The new T-Edition Tantal as its name suggests has been constructed from Tantalum (Ta), a hard heavy gray alloy that is prized for its ductility, strength, and corrosion resistance.

It’s not an obvious choice for a watch let alone a vintage diver – mainly because of its great expense, but it’s a great one if you’re looking something a little exotic and out of the ordinary. The pearl-blasted finish suits it well.
Of the features of the watch are: vintage domed crystal with hand etched VDB logo. If you look carefully you can see that it casts a rather cool shadow onto the hand painted dial. The dial features a sub-seconds counter at 6 ‘clock.
The case has also been fitted with rotational bezel and a large VDB signed crown. The exhibition caseback has also been etched it affords a view of the vintage Rolex caliber 745 with black coated rotor that powers the watch.
