A New Arrival....and another New Lounger!

Dear Fellow Loungers,


Ruby and I have the great pleasure of announcing the arrival of our new baby daughter into our family!

Michaela Ashleigh To was born Jan 27 at 12.28am (apparently a very auspicious day!).

She is a healthy 3.2kg and a very cute bundle of joy!

You will note we arel marking this occasion by wearing our favourite V&C time pieces!


With warmest regards


So cute!

A very auspicious day, indeed. I love the look on Michaela's siblings face. Perhaps thinking "am I going to hav to share Dad's watches now?"  Congratulations. What great news.

Thanks Alex,

Ruby prefers the more modern spelling of Mikayla, so I had to bend on that one as the name that will appear on the birth certificate - however Ruby has conceded to the traditional spelling of Ashleigh.  A win win and the best of old and new!

With warmest regards


Congratulations !

Michaela shares her birthday with my 33 year old son. It is a very good and lucky birthday, so we wish her the same luck and success and happiness above all.

Take good care of your wonderful family and hope they all have a V&C one day.

Domo arigato Io san!

Appreciate you kind wishes!

I lived in Japan for a year - in beautiful Nara.  It was one of the most memorable times of my life.

I hope I can visit again soon!

Best regards


Congratulations James, Ruby and the entire familly!

I have to make a trip to see your family and help you start the two young ones on their trip to WISdom.  I'll see what support I can give you in turning Ruby into a WIS as well.  devilwinksmiley


Beautiful looking family James, Congratulations and wishing you all the best of Health and Happiness!  She will be a smart monkey for sure!

Thanks Dan!

Appreciate your kind wishes!  Ever since I put on the blue watch strap on the vintage V&C, Ruby has a newfound appreciation of the watch - the old black strap didn't really do it for her!  Amazing what a change of clothes can do!

Ashton has a Peppa Pig watch for now...but it's only a matter of time before he too is converted...!

Best regards
