Fantastic dinner!

Thanks Alex and the other folks from Vacheron for a great evening. Lorena and I had a great time and it was nice meeting other Loungers. I hope this is the first of several HL events in NYC!!!
I couldn't agree more :-)

Thank you so much for organizing this, Alex.  It was a privilege for me to attend.  I really enjoyed meeting everyone, and thank you Tom for sharing some inspiring stories from your life. Vacheron Constantin has released some amazing pieces this year.  I was so impressed with the range and the quality.  Most of all, I was impressed with the openness of the discussion at the event.  It is so clear that this is a company that values most its relationship with its customer, and its potential customer.  Kudos for listening so well! See you all soon! Best, Howard
Many thanks

to Alex and the team at VC North America for hosting a wonderful event. I especially enjoyed the presentation that Alex and Christian prepared as it helps to put some of VC's recent moves into context. It would be nice to see it in digest form on the forum and then discussed. It was great to meet new faces and reacquaint with old ones. And for those whom I did not meet, we just have to do this again sometime soon! Bill

Many thanks, Alex, Christian, Hughes, and the Vacheron team. It was wonderful seeing some familiar faces and seeing some new ones, especially those I have gotten to know on this site (Tom and Dan (and his lovely wife)). It was great seeing Felipe and his wife again too. The last time we met was at the Breguet dinner and she was "only" a girlfriend then I finally had a chance to meet Bill (WHL) but unfortunately there was not enough time to dicuss much. (I'll look forward to the next event Bill!) I did have a very interesting discussion with Hughes des Pins, the new head of VC in North America, got to practice mon francais and came away feeling that the brand is in very good hands on this continent. The evening was thoroughly enjoyable, the food the discussions and especially the people. Can't wait for the next one! Many thanks again Alex et al. Joseph
It was absolutely GREAT to finally meet so many friends in person!

Daisy and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and meeting everybody! Felipe and Lorena, you were a blast - even though you forced us to sit up front instead of skulking in the back row (where the sofas did look more comfortable) Tommy, it was great meeting you and your RG Overseas in the metal!  Bill, I am so glad that I finally got to meet you.  Your research and posts have been critical in my learning about VC over the past few years.  I hope you got enough DD coffee for the trip back home! Joseph, I didn't get a chance to spend a lot of time with you but you were very gracious in coming over to our table to talk with us for a bit.  Your 3 watches were AMAZING and I'm sure we'll meet up again! Li Pei, it was very nice sitting next to you and sharing a taxi!  Like you said it is a small world and I'm sure we'll be seeing each other again too! Alex, my idol , thanks for arranging this wonderful event and inviting us!  I'm looking forward to a post (perhaps on a Monday?) about the differences between living in Paris and Geneva! Hugues, Christian and Russell, it was great meeting with all of you and I'm sure VC will prosper even more with people like you at the helm!  Thank you as well for a wonderful evening. To everybody else, it was an honor to be at a gathering with you all. Best Regards, Dan & Daisy
