A trip to visit Vacheron Constantin for our German/Austrian members

Dear Loungers,

The weekly paper Die Zeit will be organising a 4 day trip (Sept 10-13) to Switzerland for a tour of 3 great houses: Vacheron Constantin, Girard Perregaux and Piaget.

The programme is to be finalised but will include a visit to the Vacheron Constantin manufacture and the Patrimony department (museum) as well as a city tour of Neuchatel and the Watch Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The group will be limited to 8-10 participants as to allow all to actively participate. A few seats will be reserved for members of the Hour Lounge who would want to participate.

If interested please email me.

PS: Having visited the VC manufactory and Patrimony department many times all I can say is that it definately is worth the trip! I recently visited the Girard Perregaux manufactory and it also something worth seeing.

Update: this trip is in fact open to all, presentations will be
