Two different years and two different watches!

I whish you all a real Happy New Year Two different years and two different watches!

Most of all I whish you a different year, a year full of intersting experiences,
strange meetings, stunning coincidences and joy !
A new year, that would be totally different from this year,
with all it's wars, bad economy, and always news of the negative kind.
I mean there are positive things that happens Two different years and two different watches!
I want you to have fun, and I whish the journalists and politicians,
could make efforts to bring out that little extra,
to make people smile and look happy Two different years and two different watches!

So what I show you today, the last day of this year,
is two kind of watches, one from 1884 and not a Vacheron&Constantin,
and the other from my year of birth 1948....
but that's of course a Vacheron&Constantin Two different years and two different watches!

First together as we always are

Two different years and two different watches!

Than the inside of the small watch,

Two different years and two different watches!

Beautiful, but there is no air, no space.....


Then, this Victor Kullberg movement from 1884,


Two different years and two different watches!

Two different years and two different watches!

Two different years and two different watches!

Two different years and two different watches!

there's the space (!) you can see everything,
yes, it's nearly like a wood, 
where you could walk around and philosophize and,
yes, think big thoughts!
Take a deep breath and throw yourself into 2009 Two different years and two different watches!

and to everyone here.....What an uplifting message!  Happy New Year to everyone! I loved this post most of all because I'm rooting for "strange meetings" myself!  But as you said also for Joy.  Life is short we both know (I was born in 1947) and it goes soooo fast....I want to smile a lot in these next 20 years (God willing). Thanks for the pics and the narrative, they were great and your words brought a smile to my face. All The Best for 2009! Best regards, Tom
2009 is the year to turn gold into platinum....

yes, 2009 is the year for family and friends. i wish all my friends here a good'ol " happy new year" blessed with laughter, health and bliss.  please forgive me for the date on the watch cos i don't have time to upload a new photo. anyway, the point is turning a gold to platinum watch is as easy as this :) and it does makes my post a little more interesting with a pic.
and what for 2009 doc? :-) (nt)
