I am sure many of you read the Robb Report luxury magazine. The June issue is the Best of the Best issue, where they profile the Best products (according to them) of that year in each luxury category, including timepieces.
The current issue which is 2011 Best of the Best, the VC Metiers d'Art "La symbolique des laques " has been featured.
In terms of finding a spot on the Best of the Best, and also in terms of generally being featured in Robb Report, I find VC quite consistent.
Thought I will share.
