Thanks a lot Boss!

I do my best, when everybody else are lying in the sun or shadow,

just doing nothing laugh

Anyhow I appreciate your words very much blush

Doc

All are beautiful crowns...

Doc,

Do you have a particular favorite out of this great group? It's a tough call, but I think the 1919 & 1920 crowns are my favorite.

Best,

Mike

Mike look at the post above :-) nt

What a great collection of crowns you've accumulated over the years...
07/15/2011 - 01:30
Another great post, Mats! You've on the roll ;-)
Lovely line-up !
07/15/2011 - 10:39

I like the last one for its design and "personalification" of V&C. There is another crown I like: it looks like the one in your line-up with the blue stone but then the stone is gold. I think it is from the 60ies or even 70ies ?

Best,

Mark

This compendium of Crowns takes it to another level!...

Doc, If this 'Summer period' continues with such excellent posts there's a grave danger that we'll all become addicted before too long!wink

I would suggest  ' a crowning glory! ' for this one!!yes

Deeply appreciated.

Tony

Beautiful crowns...

Beautiful crowns, like all V-C watches :)

A Canadian Crown for your collection...

I'd love to sit down over a glass of this Crown to discuss your collection further wink.

10 years ago, I would have enjoyed it,
07/17/2011 - 19:29

but I simply got tired of alcohol, in double sense,

and quit, which I did with smoking 25 years ago.

Anyway water is always good,

and there are many kind of brands to chose between.

It only hurts me it's so difficult to collect ....cool

Never having a hang-over is just a nice bonus laugh

Cheers

Doc

Very nice!
