some wrist shots from the Hour Lounge dinner in Geneva (SIHH)

As you know and as posted by Kazumi and others we had our first international Hour Lounge dinner on Sunday April 6 the eve of the official opening of SIHH.

It was a great opportunity to put a face and voice on a screen name and for me it remains a memorable evening as every one immediately clicked and its great to see that the Hour Lounge community is not only virtual some wrist shots from the Hour Lounge dinner in Geneva (SIHH).

Interesting seeing so many lefthanded persons, or more right, right handed watch bearers

Fantastic pics under such circumstances.

Many watches that makes you feel like the dogs right now,

it's 5 minutes past their lunch time....

Thanks for sharing these exclusive watches,

nearly a full VC catalogue

Cheers

I can put a face to each timepiece and that is just so nice...

Great and memorable experience!

Reminds me of a gathering we once had once with Thomas Mao

who happened to visit my city and he brought several vintage & modern repeaters and these were pocket watches by the way. VC's 1950 repeater (grande complication pocket watch) sounded the best compared to APs. So many watches were brought onto the table I was afraid of getting robbed! That must be at least $700K in value    

Alex, these are some high-end VCs! Wow...

what a shock

My rose gold Jubilee looked like the welcome mat next to all those limited editions and platinum babies.  In fact, being around all the guys was like being taken to school all over again...at least on a VC scholarship this time.
