ehxibition in Strasbourg

Here is my little story of Vacheron Constantin in Strasbourg.

5 years ago, we only had in our beautiful city Rolex, JlC, Cartier, IWC, Omega retaillers.
We had to go in Paris or Germany to see some other brands.

It's what I had done in Paris, place Vendôme specially.

I fell completely in love with ... of course the Malte chrono perpetual calendar. My heart stopped beating.
the concept of dream watch began !

Quickly, i tried to find a Lemania movement. I finally called directly VC in Paris. They put me throught direct line
of Mr Jean-Yves DiMartino. It was 8:30am, first coffee/cigarette time. A very nice call. We spoke about VC of course, but about Breguet, and ended with the Datograph.

I remember that he was asking me why there was no big retailer in Strasbourg. I gave him my opinion, which was only my opinion.

2003 has been a great year for watches lovers in Strasbourg.
Edouard GENTON, opened a shop. He started with Breguet, BlancpaiN, B&R.
I visited him of course and spoke about photography.
Quickly, I told him that the day he would work with VC and have a Malte QP chrono, he had to call me

2 years after, in 2005, he started with Vacheron. YES.
in 2006, he called me, telling me he was organizing a Vacheron ehxibition, and will expose a QP chrono.

Done it.
Here are the pictures.


This ehxibition has also been seen in Paris (and maybe other cities, other countries?)

This is how I had the chance to shoot 3 beautiful Vacheron Constatin.

hi Deniz!!

Lovely report.

I saw in it a Saltarello I think in RG or YG and will like to know if you shoot it also: I'm completely in love with this piece...

Can you post any pictures of it if you got it, please? I think it's something special the way VC managed to make something so modern and traditional at the same time but from an unusual point of view.

Thanks a lot.

Best Kiko.

Stay in tune

Very nice shoot. Thanks for sharing.

How many of these watches would any of us like to see on our own wrists?  When you see an exhibition like this, it really shows the stunning variety of watches that VC has produced.

Wish I had a chance to go see that exhibit. Must have been an eye-popping experience to see so many beautiful pieces in one place.
Fantastic job Deniz, thanks. Love the Mercator France! (nt)
