Saturday, April 12th, at 8:10 o'clock, I took dawn at Geneva.
8:30, SIHH opened its door, I looked on the map of the fair .... and zouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, directly went to VC stand!!
VC stand is one of the nicest stands of the SIHH in my opinion. But certainly, it is for me the most clear, best organized stand, we directly get to the heart of the subject (and not on a desk which makes the size cutting of an aircraft-carrier): watches ... and THE novelty, the QdI.
And especially, it's necessary to congratulate the human resources of VC, they chose the most sweet hostesses (just behind Panerai)
The soft to create our customized QdI ... here with a touch-sensitive screen for demonstration, but it will be on Windows Tablet PC if I understood well for the retailers (less practical in my opinion with the magnetic pen/screen ... touch-sensitive is the best for me)
The wonderful box of the QdI: original, modern style, inspiring the quality:
The travel box ( delivered inside the wood box) in which you could take the passport of your watch, a secondary bracelet, and the watch:
The stationeries: a magnifying glass, a cloth, a screwdriver metal worker, ausb key (with all the info concerning the QdI):
Only one deployant buckle
Custominzation is only available on the QdI Day Date Power Reserve, three metals available: Palladium, Pik Gold and Titanium:
The different parts of the QdI:
The wacth's papers (a secured passport including all the information about the watch and it's owner).
The watchmaker told me that the passport is reproducing the Swiss Passport, but with Malteses crosses instead of the Swiss crosses ... inside, all is quasi similar:
Look at the anti-counterfering protection
The watches now (under shop windows unfortunatly, I wasn't allow to touhc one).... no many pics because too much light :(
The secured dial:
After a fast visit of the fair, I leave SIHH, the death in the soul, not having been able to try my favorite "affordable" watch of the year (with JLC Polaris)...
At the edge of the despair, knowing that the Rhône was'nt far from PalExpo ... I decided to return me there ....
And MIRACLE, the life to smile to me again, that what is what I saw far off??? ....
And finally, I managed to see, to touch (I needed to jump) and to shoot QdI correctly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was the first time I visited VC outlet ... and I was magnificently welcomed (I asked to see the Bi Retro and the Patrimony Boutique Edition).
