I'm happy to officially announce the birth of the VC Collectors Club


This is a personal project I have been working on for some time: The Hour Club is Vacheron Constantin's collectors club made by a collector for other collectors.

The club will offer a series of services (including a collection management tool, a watch search, a library...) and events not available outside

So please join and take your Vacheron Constantin experience to another level. 

And most importantly please share your comments/suggestion

Welcome on board and please post impressions on your watch once
11/30/2011 - 21:57
You receive it

12/01/2011 - 01:52
unfortunately it will not be. The seller just informed me that they sold the watch in the meantime, after we agreed and the price several days ago and i had sent the payment trough bank transfer. a real lack of professionalism from a professional seller. That leaves me with my beloved caliber 1003.
ohh well it happens, there will be other opportunities
12/01/2011 - 09:54
that sucks :-(
12/01/2011 - 11:15
not cool... Still, welcome to the Lounge (and Club) Cheers, Francois
Re: that sucks :-(
12/01/2011 - 19:53
thank you. yes, that's life for a collector I guess: I am probably not the first or the last one to whom it happens. on the positive side: money is still there for another Vacheron :)
Sorry to hear this

Works for me! There are some issues with iPad but will be
11/30/2011 - 21:58
Resolved within 2 weeks
Mr. G, I must remind you that if you would just join the iClub
12/01/2011 - 02:30
for iPad you would not have these issues! ;0) Just couldn't resist. The Hour Club is Califonia cool and the opening page photographs are mind numbing beauties. Best to all Tim
I do like the interweb...
12/01/2011 - 20:16
... but only when it plays nicely. I can't 'click' on the username and password boxes... Nothing happens. But I can hit the submit button... Which as you can imagine with no username or password sends it into a hissy fit. G
Congratulations - Happy to be a Charter Member

Thanks Alex very nice project
At last! :-)
12/01/2011 - 11:14
This is great news Alex, thanks for all the hard work! Also thanks for the gloves, I got them yesterday... The Patrimony Contemporaine Harrods LE is tempting, but I'll wait for the Hour Club special edition - as we discussed, in steel, with a slate grey dial...wink Cheers, Francois 
Congratulations Alex, that's good news !

watch and ref number if available, you then click either on the link on the top right of The Hour Lounge home page (next to the Goodies section) or go directly to www.thehourclub.com
Thanks again for your initiative, Alex.

It's a great idea and a privilege to be a member.
Very moving to have Duncan Wang's as first testimony
12/01/2011 - 20:01
I did not know Duncan, but I felt close while reading the testimony: "the watch should be special in some manner and therefore it should embody an emotional relationship between myself and the timepiece."
Duncan was truly one of the greatest watch
12/02/2011 - 05:08
collectors I have ever known. His passion, understanding and insight into "the watch" was hard to describe. He was crazy about V&C and he would be delighted over the entire Hour Club site. Thanks to Alex and V&C for such a thoughtful act. Duncan is missed by many of us here and many more around the world. Best to you all, Tim
couldn't put it any better, Tim. Duncan was a great Lounger and
