Lovely watch, and also lovely porcelain plate from Limoge. I had no idea that VC used Limoge porcelain for such type of gifts. Not sure if you are aware of Limoge, but their porcelain is among the finest and most prestigious in the world. They are literally the VC of porcelain dinnerware / tableware etc.
Thanks for noting the Limoges

I am not sure how many different examples there are of these kinds of VC-branded Limoges or other porcelain objects. I have seen very few examples. There is this, which I have seen on display at the NY Boutique: (Not sure who to credit for this photo) I am not sure if the above is also Limoges. I want it, regardless. I have seen VC-branded china used at the Boutique and in photos of VC events held in Geneva, but I do not think those are Limoges. I wonder if VC and Limoges have produced more examples than the one I originally posted and if anyone has pictures to share... Best, Robert
hey buddy, your VC addiction is reaching far beyond the watches ;-)

I am sure there are many other interesting items you could post out of your VC memorabilia collection... just saying
You are right, Radek

Well, we both know I have a serious VC problem. Something new arrived in the mail just today, in fact. I think you are on to a good idea in sharing our non-watch VCs more -- I love to see all the accessories. All the best, Robert

Limoges porcelain are definitely collectible. If you can get your hand on a few pieces here and there...go for it. A couple of years ago, I was a distributor of Royal Limoges, which is the oldest continous brand / company in Limoges, founded sometime in the 1700's. Essentially the VC equivalent of porcelain. Few dinner sets / tea sets / coffee sets / accessories which did not sell I kept for myself, and looking back, I am really thankful, as these are genuinely colelctible and rare. Now, since VC has this tie-up with Limoges, I need to find someone to suck up too...Alex, are you listening !!!
Too late for the party but some great shots!
