Congrats! it's delivered on Valentine's Day? Someone must love you to arrange that ; ) But I think your camera needs a loupe!!
02/14/2013 - 15:42
Indeed - greatest St. Valentine's day ever! The photos through the loupe will come - that was just a quick shot taken with a "naked" iPhone...
welcome to the 1921 club :-) and KL is right someone loves
02/14/2013 - 15:41
you to give you such a great gift for St V
02/14/2013 - 15:46
I had been lusting after this watch for too long. It feels really good to finally be able to glance at my wrist and see it strapped there, peeking out from under the shirt cuff!
And peeking out from all that "skin fur" (LOL)
02/14/2013 - 15:49
Je le connais bien, moi-meme, Alberto!
02/14/2013 - 15:57
... I figured you guys would prefer to see the watch, rather than the cuff of the (pink) shirt I am wearing today!!! :-D
wear it in best of health and please post a review (nt)
02/14/2013 - 16:15
02/14/2013 - 16:23
... I will definitely be putting this watch under the loupe!!! :-D
02/14/2013 - 16:30
...hairy or not, to see this watch on your wrist. You clearly love yourself very much, as do I*, to lavish such generous presents on oneself. I myself don't usually need Valentine's (or other Calendar dates) to spark said generosity... And feel this could be some happy coincidence since you are a man who enjoys all manifestations of the finer things in life... As ever and wherever one can lay their hands upon them.... I love it..! G * - N.B. love myself, not you... Though I do quite like you. Just to be clear.
To be honest...
02/14/2013 - 16:47
... the fact that it arrived today is purely coincidental. But you are right, I certainly do love myself at least as much as you do (love yourself, not me)!
you guys are soooo cute

02/16/2013 - 13:24
We love you too, Alex! G
What a great Valentine's Day you are having!!! :-)
02/14/2013 - 16:40
Congratulations Alberto, What a great way to celebrate! I've been lucky enough to meet your wife before..and you are a lucky man! Can't wait to see the watch under one of those great Loupe System products. Remember to pay attention to the gift giver over the long weekend (which ideally starts today). Best Regards, Dan
What do you mean, Dan???
02/14/2013 - 16:54
SHE is the lucky one!!! Seriously, though, we do have a very nice week-end planned, starting with a dinner tonight in our favorite Japanese restaurant!
Way to go, Alberto!
02/14/2013 - 16:46
Congrats on a great acquisition/gift. Enjoy!
Re: Way to go, Alberto!
02/14/2013 - 16:57
Thanks Radek! I see that you are getting very close to your 1755th post - what does Alex have in store when one reaches such an "Historique" milestone?
02/15/2013 - 14:44
I didn't even realize I was nearing this magical number of posts You have to be very careful treading these waters as Alex certainly has a good word for you at that point (a Historique milestone as you call it) but it is you that burden is bestowed upon. You have to treat yourself to something special to celebrate that event. Afraid that if it was to be a Historique's treat I would have to spend around $40k to do the celebration a justice And it is teeeeempting and its patrimony is only two years older than me...
it is not the simple pleasures in life at all..
02/14/2013 - 17:33
it is luxurious!!! It is one of the most beautiful and unique timepiece in the world!! Congratulation
Re: it is not the simple pleasures in life at all..
02/14/2013 - 19:17
I couldn't agree with you more, Leanne. It took me a long time to actually buy this watch, but I always knew, since the very first time I saw it at the SIHH, that one day it would be part of my collection!
One of my favorite watches ever!
02/14/2013 - 17:44
What a great choice. Maybe it is time fro a 1921 roll call... Enjoy it, as I know you will. Best, Robert
02/14/2013 - 19:10
Nice! But the 1972Prestige herringbone ( please allow me to be so plain of that outstanding characteristic ;) remains the best wrist shot of the month :) btw, Alex and Alberto actually wear the same watch on the same date?! I get jealous : D
He must mot love me...
02/14/2013 - 19:20
... as you thought he might, because his picture dates from August 2009. Sigh...
Re: Also present!
02/16/2013 - 00:43
Nice! > the watch / had too many chocolates these days : D I think the most beautiful part is the hands: the mix of Breguet and Feuille is such a great idea but also gracefully accomplished by VC. Does anybody know the name of the hands?
A real beauty Alberto! Wear it with the best
02/14/2013 - 21:18
of luck and enjoy the great fit! Really looks great on your wrist. Best to all, Tim
Re: A real beauty Alberto! Wear it with the best
02/15/2013 - 00:22
Thanks Tim. I agree that it looks good on the wrist - my wife was starting to get jaelous tonight during dinner!!!
And isn't this your first VC, Alberto?
02/14/2013 - 22:29
Congratulations on your 1921! Wear it in the best of health. Bill
Re: And isn't this your first VC, Alberto?
02/15/2013 - 00:24
Thanks Bill. Not my first, but the only one in my collection right now... If you have to have only one Vacheron, this is it as far as I am concerned!
02/14/2013 - 23:37
One of the best contemporary designs . Congratulations!
Re: That's sweet!
02/15/2013 - 00:25
I could't agree with you more!!!
02/15/2013 - 12:51
Great choice......wear it in good health
02/15/2013 - 13:27
It's a beautiful watch. You are very fortunate, indeed. Wear it in the best of health. Joseph
Precious moments to be treasured...
02/15/2013 - 17:33
Wishing you much happiness. Sharing is half the pleasure! Tony
Beautiful choice, my friend!
02/15/2013 - 20:22
I was shown this watch, as one of the first who saw it, by Alex when we were working very much and close with this forum. He knew I loved the original and had been some $ 100 from getting one. When i saw the 'copy', which now is so original it's nearly a symbol for V&C, I nearly fainted. For once the replica beat the original. My congratulations Doc
