A VC-holic's newest paraphenalia

I saw this on the Bay and not knowing what I would do with it, still had to have it!  devil

I've never seen a QDI presentation display/case that retailers used, but here it is:

A very nice full leather case, it measures 19" x 12.5" x 7"

When first opening the case, one sees a removable leather display pad  (everything inside the case appears to be leather as well):

I know its a TERRIBLE watch shot, but they are just there for effect (unfortuntalely no VC watches came along with the case).  frown

Removing the display pad shows the sample items/pieces used in helping describe the options of the QDI (along with gloves and cloth)

Some sample finishes available for the QDI collection  (I'm not sure if some pieces are missing from this set, as there are some vacant spaces).  These sample finishes are razor thin, so unfortunately it is not like I got small ingots of gold along with the case.  smiley

Some leather samples for strap options

If you haven't notice already, the front of the case (with the handle and locks) is hinged, so it can open up.  This allows the top section to slide out and access a lot of storage space.

I've already been called a nut by my wife and an esteemed Lounger.  But at least Daisy saw this was a pretty cool case when I showed it to her in person.  I don't plan on changing careers and becoming a retailer, so I don't really know what to do with the QDI sample items.

But I am thinking of using the case to store, what else, but VC watches of course!  As you can see...there is a ton of space.

Unfortunately, I think the case is too big to fit into my safe.  But I still really like this valise!  Thanks for looking.

I just got a safe late last year.  Daisy, through her connections, got me one from a bank that was replacing their safes.  The bank just gave it to her AND sent it over to my office, it is a fairly large, freestanding model: 82mm x 52mm x 49mm.  It is so much more convenient than a bank, wink I doubt I'll be getting another one soon, devil.  But I'll find a way to use this case!  See you in a week? BR, Dan I don't know why these pictures are rotated 90 degrees when uploaded.  Does anybody know how to rotate pictures on the Lounge, is it possible?

I think you have to rotate them before you upload them, but I love the case and the safe, too. Great Catch!
Oh yes!

We meet again in 5 days Dan! Wild horses couldn't hold me back.... See you Sunday. Best G

Cool deal,Dan!
01/13/2013 - 19:42
Come to think of it, a sole VC retailer in Poland never even got his hands on this kind of a box as he is not authorized to distribute QdI. Sad but true... Enjoy your newest catch!
Thanks Radek (nt)

Ah, so you got it, Dan!
01/13/2013 - 21:15
You beat me to it! Enjoy the case, you VC nut! Best, Robert
Was I competing against you?
01/14/2013 - 18:19
Hi Robert,  when I put in my offer, I saw that somebody else already made an offer before me.  Was that you? If it was, sorry!  I just had to have it, devil BR, Dan
LOL, he just drove up the price on you!!
01/14/2013 - 19:38
Ah, the hazards of bidding broken heart
No, Dan
01/14/2013 - 20:49
I didn't actually put an offer on this one.  You snatched it up even before I could put an offer on it.  I am slow in many ways.  indecision I am delighted you got it! Best, Robert
Ah, so you got it, Dan!

What a beautiful and space-consuming thing to get!I would love to take that handle in my hand, must be a nice feeling... I think that it would be a perfect gift for your wife to keep her jewlery in (just an idea, don't kill me for it)........
Thanks Marko, as coincidence would have it...

We left early to do some shopping and I bought her a new Ferragamo bag,  which fits some of her favorite pearls quite nicely,  :-) When we got home, the VC case was waiting for me.  I'm just calling it good karma! BR, Dan
