I was recently close to Geneva and I took the opportunity to visit La Maison (appointment made before), i.e. to have a look at their vintage pieces (new service as described by Alex in a former post), and also to make a tour of their temporary exposition (the actual one is till October this year).
I was very well received by the VC people, and a very kind lady made me discover some very old pocket watches, together with a great choice of keys, in different metals and enamel, from different periods... I watched also some old tools, all very interesting.
And at the end of the tour, she offered me a book (in my language) summarizing the visit with nice pics and stories about keys and time ("La clé du temps").
Afterwards, somebody else presented me different vintage watches for sale (pocket and wrist) in wonderful conditions; I must say that I have to think more deeply about some...
Well, you are welcome as a special guest, and this is very pleasant (from time to time)!, and you see some exceptionnal pieces.
Thanks again to these sympathic people.
