Thanks Alex, Great report. I've meant Jeanne a few times and she is a real treasure for VC, brilliant ideas and craftsmanship. Superchai I would say in likely the best guillocheur in the industry. I think Celine's hair was inspired by the Palais Garnier ceiling! (see last photo). Joseph
The engine turning machine was amazing

displays were great too, nice to see Nicki and Celine (briefly) but missed you, Alex - tant pis! Did see Ronnnie Wood , however, among a scrum of photographers.
Ed you were there? really sorry we missed each other
