I am sure it will be a memorable and outstanding event considering VC's history and involvement in the Chinese market! BTW, I love that new case of Malte Tourbillon Regulateur... 
Dear Alex, you should send a "Private Message" to dshao1 (nt)

Timing is perfect, I'll be returning to China on October 14th. Private Message being sent to Alex right after making this post. 
You deserve it, you were the first to send a post on that subject

We now wait for your pics (if you have a camera - not like me) Have a good time
Does VC's invitation to the Loungers include the Business Class plane

ticket? Seriously, I am sure that this will be a fantastic and memorable event to attend, and I am happy to see that the Loungers in the Far East finally have an VC/HL event to look forward to. Alex, will you be present?
1st class but you need to own a Tour de l'Ile first :-) (nt)

Maybe if you change "Tour" to "Quai"... ;-) (nt)

Agree with Radek (about the distance) and meanwhile envying Alex ;) The transparent dial of Quai de l'Ile is absolutely gorgeous!

Will VC launch a really "complicated" lady's collection any time soon?

It seems unfair that men's collections always look more interesting than

those lady's "jewels";)

Welcome to the Lounge KL

My wife has been asking me the same question about whether VC will make a ladies watch with complications, but not diamond filled. Best Regards, Dan
Welcome KL, we may see small complications for women soon but

don't think any minute repeaters or tourbillons specifically made for women will see the day soon.
Thanks Alex & Dan:)

Dressy,elegant watches are still what most women want, till those brainy ones discover tourbillons are cool and minute repeaters are fun that is! It's much like marketing skincares to men, how can they like or not like it if they never got a chance to see how it works? I personally don't believe women who like Chantal Thomas open-back can resist a VC open-back. They can save money to pay the mortgage of a roof they own, certainly they can do the same to something they can wear every day - watches I'm talking about; ) 

Put me on the list please

It promises to be a wonderful occasion and I hope that plenty of Loungers will be able to attend. Unfortunately, I will not be able to join for the festivities in Shanghai as I have guests arriving from the US the morning of the 17th into Singapore. Congratulations to VC on another achievement in China and I wish all of the attendees a most enjoyable time. Cheers, Duncan
I have just returned from Shanghai!!!

Unfortunately, I was there too early to participate at the opening! Bad luck, and it could have been a great opportunity to meet some fellow Loungers. Cheers
