Warmest greetings to everyone here at the Hour Lounge,
Just my first humble post in the Hour Lounge to share my excitement and pleasure to be part of the Vacheron family! Have just took ownership of my very first Vacheron timepiece, the Overseas Chronograph Limited Edition Ref 49150/000W-9015 with the yellow hands. My first exposure to Vacheron started when I wanted to find a brand which was exclusive and subtle, yet classy and with the highest watch-making standards. When I discovered Vacheron, I was deeply intrigued by its rich history and the highest level of watchmaking standards that the company upheld continuously for the last 260 years. Being a more sporty individual in life, I was naturally attracted to the Overseas models of Vacheron. Indeed, the very first piece that caught my eye when I entered one of the boutiques of Singapore was the Overseas Perpetual Calendar, and the presence of the striking bright yellow hands that stood out vividly against the titanium grey dial. It was such a beauty! (And so was the pricey tag...) It was not too long later when Vacheron announced the availability of the Overseas Chronograph that has the option of the yellow or the red hands. At that moment, it was instinctively clear to me that I must have that timepiece in my current collection. And then, it was sealed...I had to have it. It was a memorable milestone for me to hold the piece that tugged my heartstrings on the 31 Oct 2015, and I was part of the Vacheron family since. The overall Vacheron experience has been wonderful, I must say. Apart from me, my whole family has also been part of this engaging Vacheron experience. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the watch-making session that was organised very well, leaving the workshop with fond and beautiful memories of the Vacheron experience. Finally, this has to be the topping of the cake when I was invited with other very knowledgeable members of the Vacheron family to a rare opportunity to meet Alex who was in Singapore for an event. Well, I mean, what else can I ask for being a part of this family? I do apologise for such a long-winded post, but I thought it would be great to pen my thoughts on being part of this exclusive yet inclusive family that loves the this brand called Vacheron Constantin. Salut! Wear your Vacheron in good health!
