Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!

The holidays are getting close and I would like to give a gift to the Loungers. But I just have one and its something that the winner will be the 1st in the world and the entire universe to recieve cool

Guess what is going on in the pictures and what the subject is. 

The winner will need to correctly guess what the result of what is going on in the scans will be (what the team is working on). 

The gift will be what the team is working on.

Contest is open until Dec 17 noon Geneva time. The winner's name will be drawn amongst the correct answers. If no correct answer then the winner's name will be randomly drawn amongst the participants.

Obviously they are taking photos cheeky I would say a book on VC's next big shot caliber
Who doesn't like a competition!
12/10/2012 - 12:15
..or winning prizes! I would guess that it was the making of the fabulous 'Calibre 2755' book. Regards to all Gary
I think I wasn't clear enough so just added more info. Gary you can
12/10/2012 - 12:34
guess again just to make things more fair with those posting after you. The gift will be what the team is working on so its not Cal 2755 book :-)
Suspending my last post!
12/10/2012 - 12:43
Due to breaking news! How about a new fabulous book on 'Calibre 2253'?! Thanks Alex! Gary
How about another clue for all the newbies

can't give more clues without giving it away :-) but its nothing that
12/10/2012 - 14:25
newbies can't guess!

It could be a new rotor or a tourbillon :)
Hmmm, upon close examination
12/10/2012 - 15:59
I see a tourbillion, so the question is, which one.  I am going to guess that they are photographing a tourbillion for a new book, and if specificity is required, for a book about the Cal. 2260 and/or the Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon.

Hi Ale, I think its a bauble of some kind. Probably a semi-functioning tourbillon which can be used as a pendant or key fob. Joseph
I don't know what it is, but I feel sure I want it!
12/10/2012 - 16:29
I think they are photographing a new tourbillion for what i hope will be the next edition of Collectors Island.  Although I think Joseph may be onto something that this will be a new accessory of some sort, perhaps a lapel pin?
A new caliber with LeFrançois / a new design for a repeater (nt)

Is it the book on Calibre 2253? The Patrimony Traditionelle model with QP, Tourbillon, Equation of time, Sunrise and Sunset time, and 14-day Power Reserve. Can't wait...

I would say an new toubillon escapement with a maltese cross probably in a black material. al the best to my fellow loungers, Berny
Re: Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/15/2012 - 04:05
My final guess is a pen with a tourbillon escapement wheel integrated on it.
My guess is.....
12/10/2012 - 21:56
That she is finishing a set of cuff links
A new Mask?

A Vacheron Constantin tourbillon guitar pick cool  - I really want one of those. My guess would've involved a tourbillon but I really have no idea . 
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/11/2012 - 00:51
I am also guessing that she is working on some fashion accessory...since someone has already guessed cufflinks, i'll go with...tieclip? Awful guess but I really have no idea.  Oh well, if everyone is equally befuddled, then I still have a chance to win through the draw!
A book or catalogue on
12/11/2012 - 10:58
a tourbillon?
let me take a wild guess...
12/11/2012 - 13:57
engraving and applying the snake on the newest metier creation???
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/11/2012 - 15:24
Micro rotor design
Re: Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/11/2012 - 21:15
Buckle / clasp element
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/12/2012 - 03:55
A commemorative coin .  i guess .
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/12/2012 - 06:11
A cufflink with design cues related to the tourbillon movement with the maltese cross is my guess.
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/12/2012 - 07:18
Hi Alex, My guess is the team is painting, polishing and finishing off a pair of cuff links. Merry Christmas to the Lounge! With best regards JAMES
Hi Alex. I am going to guess it is a Maltese
12/12/2012 - 17:05
Cross lapel pin with The Hour Lounge engraved on the piece. Best, Tim
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/12/2012 - 17:39
I hope it is a nice set of cufflinks with tourbillion :)) I would soooo where them ..
Re: Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/13/2012 - 18:18
maybe keyring?
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/13/2012 - 19:29
New VC Catologue?
This is fun!
12/15/2012 - 20:40
So I see the tools related to balance assembly, and I see some high-finish polishing going on, but there is only one assembly platform so its not a pair, and my guess is...a balance carriage being modified into a lapel pin.  I've taken the risk of dismissing the notion of a tie tack because membership in THL is, of course, non gender-specific. heart
My Guess
12/17/2012 - 09:28
Lapel pin.
Re: Holiday contest: win a surprise gift!
12/17/2012 - 09:37
Well, a wild guess is it's a stall to hold the body of a cuff link for enamelling in red?
