Alex, when will you go under embargo ?

It seems that all aficionados here,

who tends to be extremely well informed,

when asking you questions about new creations,

God knows, how they find out (!),

you have a standing answer :

" It's under embargo" !

So, I will not read that YOU, will be under embargo to October Alex, when will you go under embargo ?


That information is also under embargo :-) on a more serious note

I can understand some frustration comming from our community memebrs wondering why I respect the embargo even though the information has been made public.

There are a few reasons behind that:

1) No real information has been made public other than a few photos which have been posted on line by mistake but no details have been given.

2) The team at VC has been working hard to creat an "event" around these new pieces (that's the reason these pieces were not unveiled at SIHH) and I don't want to spoil it for them given the hard work they have put in it.

3) As weird as this may sound if I don't respect the embargos I won't get any exclusif information and our community memebrs will no longer be the first to see certain pieces (ie: Les Masques, Patrimony special Boutique, limited edition Malte perpetual calendar retrograde etc... were 1st shown on The Hour Lounge as will be 2 new pieces next week!)

I agree with your position and the way to handle this situation

What is important is not to be the first to give the information but to be the best.

Agree with you Mercator, having a journalist background I confirm that

its not who gives the information first but who gives the most complete.

Alex, just out of curiosity.

If you don't respect the embargos, will you be asked to leave?



Good question, if I don't respect an embargo which has been breached

elswhere I doubt it. However I'm basically in the same situation as any independent web moderator, I get the info and sometimes exclusive info if I respect the brand's requests in terms of timing.

Alex, I love you, and you know that ! Just kidding :-)
