Up Close with Vacheron Constantin.

W&W is always a great event, however this year was a special one for Vacheron Constantin as they were celebrating the 260th year ! For me too it was special  as I had the pleasure to attend the Gala  Dinner and connect with the VC team for the first time thanks to Aex.I was pleasantly surprised by there warmth and bonhomie  specially Alex and Dans.

What also impressed me was the personal interest shown by Mr Juan-Carlos Torres to interact with all who were present there. I also had the pleasure of interacting with other forum members and the three master watch makers.

I simply loved the “ Cornes De Vache 1955 “. VC lovers its time to start saving for this beauty :-)

Dan and KK have already posted some pictures ,here are some of my favourites  ... 

It was just last week and I already miss it! thanks for sharing

the Gala dinner and got to meet the three Master Watchmakers and JCT as well.

But even though I missed that, spending the day with Alex and Dan was brilliant enought.

Yes, the Cornes De Vache is worth saving for; so is the WT with gold dial.

Hope to see you soon.

Great meeting you in person as well!

You have some great pictures from the Gala, as well as some really nice wristshots!

As Alex said, I can't believe it was already one week ago...feels like yesterday.

Dan I remember when Alex introduced us at the Gala dinner , in a short while we were chatting as if we had known each other for a long time smiley. Its amazing how the common passion for watches can make you bond and sometimes make complete strangers friends . It was great interacting with you. I look forward to our next GTG.

I'm still to find a single person who doesn't love the Cornes. What a magnificent piece.

And am I the only one who thinks it would go great on a womans wrist too? Such a sexy design!

Just for you (and you are NOT alone)
