Thanks Joseph, for the nice photographs capturing both atmosphere and detailyes. Good to see the Florileges Collection - what are your early thoughts? Regards, Tony
Hi Tony

The Florilege collection was beautiful, the technique and realisation were very impressive. The grey Patr. Trad. was outstanding. The colour really enhanced the elegance of the watch tremendously. One other watch really impressed me but it won't be announced til sometime next month, so I can't say anything now. But it was mty personal favourite. Best, Joseph
Joseph, what have you got up your sleeve?...

I shall have restless nights..frown... You did mention sometime ago that you were taking 'The Eagle' to Geneva. Did you do so? That does deserve some generous 'wrist-time'... Looking through your notes it seems that you dropped-off in Paris prior to your flight home. Did you mange to look-up a favourite spot or two? Warmest regards Tony
I am sooooo jealous :-)
