SIHH, my 2 cents

As many have already stated the hospitality of VC was outstanding, at the dinner for the Loungers which took place at the Boutique and at their display at PalExpo. Dominique, Julien, Isabelle could not have been nicer. The presentation at which Mr. Torres was present was outstanding and Vacheron once again has come up with outstanding pieces. and there's more to come throughout the year!

I save special thanks for Alex who I believe is working a 36 hour day...a very remakable fellow who knows SO MUCH STUFF!! It was great to finally meet you, Alex.

And I have to say it was great finally getting to meet some of the other Loungers. Now at least I can put a face to the name, Lin, Jerome, Francois, JohnLy, Kazumi, Adam, Radek, Felipe and Walid. What a great bunch of guys and extremely knowledgeable about many watch brands. I enjoys sharing experiences very much and hope to meet eveyone and hopefully other Loungers as well in the future.

Unfortunately I can't upload any of my pics since I'm still in Paris, but I really don't have anything significant to add to those  already posted (unless you want to see some tourist shots of Paris LOL).

All the best to eveyone on the Lounge!

general the QdI was definately the talk of the town and a collection which made a great impact on all present (journalists, retailers, collectors...). Of course not evet one loved it but the positive point is that it did not leave place for lukewarm comments: people were either astounded or hated it!

The fair in general was not a particularly good vintage with few intersting pieces. Maybe it was the fact that SIHH 2009 was advanced 3 months and will be held in Jan (instead of April) and the exhibiting brands had to divide their offering between the 2008 and 2009 shows but other than the Quai de l'Ile, the JLC Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2 and the Montblanc Rieussec chronograph nothing new really caught my eye.

it sure seems that VC know how to throw a party! Any photos of the HL
