Executive dining room where Vacheron treated us a fabulous luncheon ( I could get used to this!)
I had the honour of sitting next to Mme Veronique Briand a most lovely, charming and gracious person, oh and did I mention knowledgeable...
She really put the whole visit into a more personal perspective...that it is the dedicated people on all levels who design and produce these horological works of art.
Orchids, orchids everywhere...
Oops...took a few bites out before remembering to take a photo.Lavender ice-cream, anyone?
Monsieur Dominique Bernaz, our host, welcoming the group to Vacheron-Constantin... un vrai gentleman, bien eleve, courtois, galant et distingue. (comme Alex, n'est-ce pas??)
We say adieu and its off to the Boutique...
La Boutique. The older building to the right with the bell tower, I believe was the origial domicile for VC.
Boutique windows with some mouth-watering models accompanied by matching cuff-links
A fascinating exhibition of watch keys was on display at the time of our visit.

They were also patient enough to put up with my less-than-perfect French
