Contest No.3. And the winner is....

yes, who should be the winner?

This was a difficult question that was handled over to me from Alex.

You all have very personal and interesting stories and watches,

as we all know.

The prerequisites for me were:

Tell us what your favorite Vacheron Constantin watch is and why. Please post a scan if possible. You don't actually have to own the watch but should be one you really like.
Doc will be the judge here and will choose the post having convinced him of buying a non Art Deco watch.

I have interpreted this as, which new VacheronConstantin that I, Doc, will buy next time,

and how well it's described and motivated.


1st Prize: The Secrets of Vacheron Constantin book (exists in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin)
goes to Veillotoron Contest No.3. And the winner is....

because it's the watch, that I would most like to buy,

if/when I could afford it !

(Alex know have close I was to buying one in YG a two years ago)

Anyhow that's good because then the PT wasn't on the market Contest No.3. And the winner is....


So, please accept this gift, as a sign of that you have made an amazing choice,

and also motivated it in best possible way, and not least,

how you earlier let us participate in your decision!


Most of all I hope that you recover as fast as possible Contest No.3. And the winner is....

Congratulations to Veillotoron !

Congratulations to the two winners in this contest:

One winner: Veillotron - Great choice, great watch and referring to contest No. 2 - great story!  I honestly hope you get the chance to be the winner of both contests.

Another winner: Doc - for putting this watch back on your list after a close call 2 years ago.  It's way over my budget, but through the HL I can live precariously through the other members .

Congratulations to both of you, Dan

I must say a good choice, Doc.

You and your watch are definitely deserving winners!!

Now we eagerly await scans of your beauty.  I hope it arrives asap.

Beware of the book.  It has been known to prompt additional VC watch purchases (don't overlook the DVD at the back, too).
