I had the pleasure to discuss with Mrs Anita PORCHET. She talks with passion of her ART and love her "work". She explained how she realizes any colors and mix of them according the evolution after each heating time. All have to be prepared carefully as no mistake was permitted. After "Chagall & Opera de Paris- Hommage aux compositeurs", she started with Tchaikovski swan lake. She said it was a personnal choice to start with this "compositeur" and she listened many time the music to be in "community" with his music and Chagall painting. You could notice how she had reproduced any lines (larger or thinner) as Chagall did. A perfect reproduction indeed. Then, she had chosen to follow next reproductions with counterclockwise and then the next one will be Giselle d’ADAM. There will be a part of the previous and the next paints as it is a continuum….   Thanks Mrs Anita PORCHET for who you are and all creations you realize.  A real pleasure for all of us, and for all VC loungers too. Cheers, Liger

I had the pleasure to meet twice Mr Chrystian LEFRANCOIS, firstly during my visit to VC Manufacture and yesterday here in Paris. It is always a great time to lesson him talking with passion with its art and knowledge of "Grandes Complications" i.e. QP, Tourbillons and mostly Minute repeaters. Here is some photos of Chrystian LEFRANCOIS in action: teaching us and demonstrating the MR calibre (no sound added ) Thanks again Mr Chrystian LEFRANCOIS for your passion and your perfect knowledge of all these small parts which change our time and life Cheers, Liger
