I am sorry but I do not agree with you
What I mean is ,How can it be that a brand like Vacheron with their historie and superb high end quality
is not as strong in the market as I think they should be
Or to put it otherwise , why is it that Patek is still the top in the market at least for the vintages [always estimated about 30% higher than Vacheron for the more or less same models]
the difference is not in the quality of the watches
But in the way they presented theirselves through the history
let me give you two examples
There are several very good catalogues about vintage Pateks with all the information about
references, calibres and auction results
Vacheron has about two or three catalogues with lots of beautiful pictures but hardly any
relevant info about calibres ref. numbers etc.
We all know the system Patek has with the "exrtact of the archives"
it is very simple and not very expensive
Vacheron on the other hand says
You have to send us the watch and the cost will be at least €550 [how to scare your potential clients away]
Also I think that this Vacheron lounge we have now is most of all is more the works of
Alex [who deserves a big aplausse ] then of Vacheron
Making top quality products is just not good enough
you have to present it with the same standard you use in your products
There is indeed a lot going on at this moment at Vacheron and I am much to impatient
but it was a real dissapointment to me that the watch i just saw at the Jeweler was not on the
and I do not care if other brands do even worse, Vacheron is the one to prove themselves now.
