Contemporaine Boutique back

As I mentioned in an earlier post, after getting back from the VC SIHH event, I had noticed that my newly acquired Contemporaine Boutique Edition was gaining 2 minutes a day.  I was reluctant to send it off for a check up so soon but I decided to play it safe.  Fortunately, VC Japan said it was only a case of magnetization.  Probably from Alex' magnetic personality.Contemporaine Boutique back

Well, after almost a month at the repair center, my newest baby is finally back.Contemporaine Boutique back

And so it rejoins its older siblings in my small VC family.  I do hope there is still room for more babies in the coming years, but rising costs and static wages means strict "family planning" from now on.Contemporaine Boutique backContemporaine Boutique back

Okay, I guess this one is proof that even a VC-lover can be guilty of a little (horological) filandering once in a while... Contemporaine Boutique back

Unfortunately,  I had to put my darlings away for safe keeping as I will be leaving with my wife and daugther for a short vacation in Hawaii later this week.  What will I wear during my trip?  Well, most probably my old Rolex... (and an even older quartz Tag Heuer...Contemporaine Boutique back).

Sorry for the sloppy pics.



Have a nice vacation Kazumi

Nice collection

Have a great time, Kazumi!

I hear that a great way to wind a watch is to put it on the hips of one of those hula girls??

15 secs per hip and the watch is wound for the day!

Best wishes,


I hope my wife will let me to take home one of those hula winders. nt

Hi Rei,

How about one Hommage Aux Grandes Explorateurs (I hope I got that right) for starters!

Uhm...that huh? Yeah, that'd be another GR8 addition! :) (nt)

Magnetism is more and more around us, and affects our beauties!

You have a nice choice of VC, my friend, and the Contemporaine fits perfectly with its other sisters...

Enjoy your vacation.

I'll babysit your Toledo while your away...
