Hello Everyone

To The VC Lovers, I would just like to introduce myself to everyone. I used to post a bit on thepurists before but I stopped mainly due to work-related time constraints. I have been in the hobby since I was a kid, I started with swatch, of course. Although Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet have gotten more share of wallet from me in total, in the last 3 years Vacheron Constantin has been catching up as it has always had more share of interest and heart from me. My father always put Vacheron as something aspirational for me so I guess that is why I have always been more interested in it. If you guys don't mind, I will be joining your discussions, hopefully more often. Best, NL

It is nice to hear that someone who already owns PPs and APs is looking at VCs.  It says well for the brand. Like everyone else, it would be nice to see your collection or even here some anecdotes from your father regarding VC.  At any rate, I am sure you will find the Lounge to be "the place to be for all things VC"... and then some! All the best, Kazumi

I have been collecting for quite some time. The VC EP collection really fascinates me the most and i had the chance to buy every single one of them but due to circumstances like the fact that i was preparing to get married, i had just gotten other watches, or i had to re-invest in my business, the only 2 i bought were the patrimony contemporaine and the chronograph perpetual calendar. the other watch I was very fascinated by was the malte skeleton tourbillon in palladium but i did not get it either even if my dealer told me that it was one of the 10 made for the US market. For some reason I have always gotten sidetracked when it came to VC. Now, I will really be more prudent in making decisions regarding my collection.
those are two amazing watches and the Chrono QP seems to be a

That may have replaced the Lange 1815 Chrono (old version) as my favorite traditional chrono.  Just lovely! Best, respo
