Here are some pictures of the booth during SIHH 2014

This year, it was a really highly automated and interactive booth focused on Minute Repeaters, so pictures don't really do it justice.  The booth had similarities with the MR exhibit at Watches & Wonders last Sept.  It also included the interactive display of all of VC's in-house movements.

What was new this time was a highly interactive display of movement compononents.  There were screens with large magnifying glasses/loupes on them with a small movement component underneath for viewing.  When you rotate the magnifying glass, the screen would start up and show the component that was being viewed in a video.

the large model of Cal 1731...which cost more than the watch itself...but I would so love to have this model!

This is the other side of the long hallway.  The entrance to the booth splits the hallway in half.  The exhibits are directly in the back, when you walk straight into the booth entrance.

This is a picture hanging on the hallway wall, I just thought it was a cool photo.

Simply marvelous! Thank you very much, Dan, for completing the picture, as tony chance so eloquently phrased, that Alex had begun with his earlier video of the booth (more on "booth" later). And much gratitude for answering a question I had upon seeing the large revolving model of a movement in the video: the identity of that calibre. Seeing that in the video struck me as my favourite exhibit of the booth, and I too would love to procure it. Maybe we can go half-and-half? ("How much is that doggie in the window?" is a song running in my head.) Back to "booth." What a magnificent booth is this. I'm sorry, but is it just me that feels the word "booth" is sorely inadequate to refer to such an exhibit installment? Vacheron Constantin's luxurious and tasteful contribution to SIHH 2014 is as far from a stall at a regional faire (the image "booth" evokes to my mind) as one could possibly get. I must fetch my thesaurus on my shelf . . .
Thanks for sharing Dan

I couldn't make it to SIHH but hope to make it to Watches and Wonders. Hope to see you then. Cheers Robin
W&W 2014 it is then. If not earlier :-) (nt)
