Inspired by previous posts on bespoke Loungers' VC models and encouraged by our guru Alex I decided to begin an official Vacheron Constantin Loungers' edition watch contest.
We all dream of having a 'custom-made' Vacheron Constantin watch of our own. For most of us it is definitely out of reach. But as the Hour Lounge community we can incorporate the idea of the Loungers' edition and bring it to life. Chances are that the watch will be actually built and produced in a limited edition that only us – the Loungers' – will have access to. This is my ultimate goal to achieve...
In the meantime let's have some fun and create our dream Vacheron Constantin!
Here's what the whole idea of the voting competition is about:
The contest is divided into two parts.
All Loungers are requested and allowed to post their ideas on what their bespoke VC Loungers' watch should look like. Just try to describe, draw, photograph or photoshop your dream VC Loungers' edition watch. Then post it on our Hour Lounge in this post thread (the contest thread).
Stage 1 of the contest is open as of today November 22nd till December 5th.
I really count on your participation and creativity. Multiple entries are welcome. The most creative post will be awarded (still working on the prize – VC related of course).
On December 5th the Jury consisting of (I hope you will accept my choice since I haven't consulted this with anyone) Alex Ghotbi (the Man), Doc the Junior (due to his VC and Lounge seniority) and Fred 925 (the Photoshopper) will decide which of your proposals will go into the Stage 2 of the contest and also will award the most creative post prize.
Proposals chosen by the Jury will be incorporated into 'real' watches by our talented Fred 925!!!. His photoshop skills will be displayed in several proposals of Vacheron Constantin Loungers' edition watches on the Hour Lounge. That is when the real voting starts. Everyone can vote his favorite proposal by grading it. Exact rules on voting will be explained along with the voting post.
This way we will choose our ultimate dream VC Loungers' edition timepiece.
As I said before, we can then direct a request to Vacheron Constantin and push hard to make this watch a real thing. I believe it is very realistic.
For now let's have fun and participate! Start your brains churning, your imagination running wild and delivering the best of your ideas!
