VACHERON DISPLAY OF NEW WATCHES

Several people have already posted great pics of the new Vacheron watches.
I'm adding my little bit here but in a much more informal way.
But first I would like to emphasize how wonderful the Vacheron staff were.
Cudos especially to Julien marchenoir who was un stinting in his generosity and time to show us all the new watches, try them on etc. But not just the new pieces... Thanks to Julien we were able to see anything Vacheron had in those cabinets. We just had to ask!
In addition, many of the VC senior staff came buy to say hello and answer questions. They were most gracious.
Vacheron allowed unfettered access to their booth in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, which I will say was not true of many of the displays.
The hostesses, the watchmaking staff showing their art and talent, the executives treated everyone with equal charm kindness and sincerity.

So here are a few pics from the show. I confess I have been rather ruthless in eliminating some photos. I had quite a few and this is only a small representation.
Enjoy!

Joseph it hurts, in two ways!

First it hurts in my left second finger, since I cut myself 'playing' with a certain Vacheron&Constantin knife , some hours ago.  It stopped bleeding, but now I was out in the dark wood, at 20 minutes past ten in the evening with the dogs.   Some small snowflaes came sailing through the dark in the light of my pocket lamp. We passed the shed where we have the fire wood, and I picked a basket and brought in, Gave the dogs some night food. Went to the computer and to the Club. Here I found your nice post. When I stared writing it hurted and all the key-tangents on the keybooard got bloody So now I have a plaster and I cleaned it nearly I see  at the keyboard. The second and real reason it hurts, is because your lovely pictures of VC's even lovlier pieces, are on MY wrist! Why couldn't I just have walked out with them, no one of the VC people would have been half as glad as I Thanks again, for your, better and better pics! It is easy to get dizzy sharpness with those objectives! Really miss our chat at my hotel room hej! Doc

I remember it fondly as well. I was going to mention something about your sleeve being a little bigger than normal so that a watch could easily slide up there and not be noticed. Many of the pictures with these lenses are so sharp that even with extreme magnification the details are quite amazing! I will take some pics of my latest acquisitions which you haven't seen since I picked them up on the Monday on which you left. I'm hoping to get a chance this weekend. But as you know it always takes longer than you plan for! Regards, Joseph
Thanks Joseph. It is great to see wristshots of the new pieces. (nt)

Hi Joseph! Really fantastic pictures Seeing your great stuff holds me off from posting my poor shots I see Marc in one of the pictures and it reminds me of his answer on an Hour Lounge watch: someday, you have to make your choice and voting first!

Fabulous Pictures Joseph......

the usual for you.  Thanks so much for posting them!  All of them look great on you especially the 1921! Best regards, Tom
Thank you so much for the "in the flesh" shots

I was particularly keen to see what the American looked like in the metal with ref to how large it looks on the wrist. This has given me a really good idea of it, thanks!
