Don't you just love it when very FEW know or even wear your watch?

Truly unique as it's LP...Alex and Katsumi have it. Anyone else here? Don't you just love it when very FEW know or even wear your watch?

The same goes for this...too bad not a VC though.
05/17/2008 - 10:20

But I believe none of my friends has this becase it's a quartz, maybe...

Sorry, Rei the dial's too loaded for me...
05/17/2008 - 10:37

Your previous post had a much bigger emotional impact

You're right. The dial is too clutered.
05/17/2008 - 19:26

Sometimes I even find it hard to read the information on the dial, like date for example. Oh well, where else can you get hand finished grande complicaton for only $2000?

it is a drop-dead-gorgeous watch...
05/17/2008 - 10:29

and the feeling of limitedness and exclusiveness of the watch is really one of a kind, simply overwhelming. 

I have a regular Patrimony Contemporaine with its creamy enamel dial and find it very handsome as well. Yet, it doesn't compare to the boutique edition...


the more I see your watch the more I love it! here's something rarely
05/17/2008 - 14:59

talked about and seen

You also some times see the most unexpected watches...
05/17/2008 - 17:06

saw this baby on someone's wrist in a second hand /vintage shop. Too bad HL didn't exist at the time or I definately would have told him to visit

05/17/2008 - 19:38

That's indeed unexpected. He must be someone special. Someone I was introduced to was wearing Patek Sky Moon Tourbilon, and when he handed it to me to look at, it felt so light and maed out of plastic! Talk about a 3rd class fake! 

05/17/2008 - 20:48

but it must have been quite a lump on the fellow's wrist?

he was wearing a short sleeve polo :-)! (nt)

Love the color of the blue steel hands
05/17/2008 - 17:35

the picture doesn't do it justice. What a great case design Peter came up with for his line of watches

Hi Alex,

Always nice to see Peter's fine watches.  While I was most impressed by the Quai de l'Ile line by VC at SIHH, I did go home with a PSM that I picked up from Peter. 

Now, for a rare VC, how about this one?


Only 3 available, yours is #1, I believe (nt)

Hats off Duncan, you rock :-) (nt)

Thanks guys!  This one is a real fave of mine and one that I will never tire of.

I am just glad that VC has introduced the Quai de l'Ile line as it is another blend of new and contemporary elements of haute horlogerie with the traditional aspects of fine watchmaking that are at the heart and soul of the manufacture.


Really missing mine...

Hi guys,

Glad to see you're enjoying your Contemporaine boutique, Rei. 

Actually, my Contemporaine boutique is in the shop right now. 

After getting back from Switzerland, and when the excitement had settled down,

I noticed that it was gaining a full two minutes in one day, and felt it was losing power much faster than normal...

This was my first such experience with a VC.  The rest of its siblings have been keeping perfect time since day one.

Oh well, these things are man made so they can't be perfect every time...

Its been away for almost two weeks now and I am really missing it.



P.S.   By the way Rei, "Katsumi" is a porn actress...but don't worry, Alex used to call me Katsumi too. 

Just shows what everybody is doing when we're not in the Lounge...

LOL you still remember that? :-) and sorry to
05/17/2008 - 17:01

hear about your watch

LOL! Gomennasai...
05/17/2008 - 19:33

Kazumi, NOT Katsumi  ...

No, I don't watch porn...I produce them! LOL! Just kidding...

Sorry to hear the watch had to go back to Switzerland. Mine also had to go back after a month or so since the dial had a dimple so it was swapped with a perfect one free. It took about 1.5-2 months. When you get iti back, it'll be perfect again!

Actually, I haven't heard from VC Japan yet...
05/18/2008 - 04:15

so there is a chance that adjustments can be made locally.

BTW, please PM me if you need someone for your next movie!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend guys!


LOL! Should we feature VC for a screen shot as well

Re: Really missing mine...
05/17/2008 - 19:52

They have porn in Japan???

I'm shocked, shocked, I tell you!!! LOL!!


hope it makes it back home soon...
05/18/2008 - 13:38

and as you wish you will get to star in the XXX movies to get the VC screen shot

Yes I think that will end up as an iconic VC watch...nt
05/17/2008 - 17:39


Patrimony Contemporaine is already considered an iconic VC watch...
05/18/2008 - 14:00

by many watch aficionados

I just love it. Wearing it everyday...
05/18/2008 - 18:56

Maybe I should get the dateless auto version too
