Some photos of my Vacheron visit at SIHH

I just got back from SIHH and had a great time with Vacheron. Below are some photos from the trip. Dinner was on Sunday night, and the presentation was on Monday. Here we are entering the Salon on Mon afternoon.

As usual, SIHH is a step above Basel, with great food and decor

The new papers for VC models going forward, initially only for the QdI. It's a passport made by the same manufacturer that makes official documents. It's full of security features including micro printing and hidden messages that can be seen under UV light.

the vacheron presentation very well. Also how nice it was of Juan Carlos Torres to take the time out of what must be a crazy and hectic schedule to share his vision of Vacheron, truly an amazing time for me and our whole group. 

Mr L (I like that, I may change my avatar)
