Very nice article, I think we are lucky to have this forum and have someone within VC to discuss things with. That said I would also say Alex is quite lucky to have the job he does, I would have done the same!

moderator Alexandre. 

Long life to Alexandre and all participants of THL and The Hour Club.



Excellent recognition

Great story and some well-deserved credit and recognition.  It is interesting how pervasive a true culture can be.  Compare Alex's statement about their social media startegy with the statement about the design of Vacheron watches.


Alex: a brand can be traditional without being stuck in the past

The video: it must be true to it's heritage but, at the same time, not retro but "of it's time"

Those two quotes are interchangeable.  There is a saying in American popular business culture, that "Culture eats strategy for breakfast".  I think this is the true culture of Vacheron and that it goes to the core.  Fascinating story about "The Don" and enlightening, as always, about the brand.

True, and ironic

THL has become,under the umbrella of the Manufacture, a place more comfortable with and accepting of honest, even opinionated, discourse than the brand-sponsored pages on most of the so-called independent watch forums.  I could really go on a rant but why spoil the wonderful and well-deserved recognition of what Alex has achieved with THL.  The place has energy, spirit and camraderie...with a helping of info for the little grey cells thrown in.

Gentelmen, thank you for your kind words but the Lounge is a great place because YOU are

And thank you, Joseph!

Thanks Dan..We are both the first - it was a matter of time difference. :-)

Y-D-M. you da man!

This post is for Alex - yesterday I went to a two hour seminar on Digital
04/17/2015 - 17:16

Marketing. The presentation was given by a young woman on the importance of Digital Marketing, and a host of do's and dont's etc. etc. It was really educational.

The things is; throughout the presentation the role of Alex and THL kept coming up in my head as whatever was super important and critical in terms of Digital Marketing / Social Media / Engaging with people (customers / enthusiasts / fans etc. etc.) has been done by Alex way back in 2007 and successfully been done ever since.

Sir thank you :-)
