thanks Alex, I really love them, the Mercator are so poetic...Actually I love them so much that i neglect my other Vacheron..and other brands...but they are so hard to find, it is quite impossible to find one model in the auctions or the watch dealers. The champlevé models are just incredible. Thanks again Alex for this great blog for the Vacheron lovers and owners. Pierre
Welcome to the Lounge, you are obviously a man of taste and passion!

Lovely collection
Can't get any better, they are so different in each metal and dial yet

Each is masterpiece in its own right
Breathtaking!

Unbelieveable...what a gathering heart.  Each has its own artistic merits, it must be nice to have a choice to match your tie wink.  Thanks for brightening up the day.
What a trio, they sing the songs of History,

navigation, great art and of course what an amazing way to tell the time! It is all wrapped up in the perfect package. I just missed buying one on Rue Madame this month--but the hunt continues. Wear them in good health and let's hear some stories about the trio when you feel so inclined. Happy Holidays, Tim

   the Mercator with France dial actually came from rue Madame. I was so happy to get it as I missed the subscription for the France dials few years ago and i was wondering when i could have another chance.    I started my collection buying the gold Europe/Asia dial in Mid Eastern, so Asia, and the platinum with Americas dial in NYC! It is a funny coincidence that i bought the dials related to the continents where I was staying at this time. Soon a new one shall be added to my collection, the first pic will be for this blog, the only thing I can say : it will be another different dial... Here a better pic of the Americas, maybe my favourite one.
I love them all and can't wait to see the new

That's my favorite one, too

Thanks for all your kind appreciations For 2012, I just can say it will be a new cloisonné dial...Pity it won't be Italy, my second country, but this mercator was only produced in 2 examples... As i am in Rio for NYE I let my mercators in Paris and i wear a Disney watch, poor of me, at least it is a retrograde model... Best wishes for all of you, VC lovers!
