What are you wearing today + Question to my fellow Loungers

QP Chrono EP for me...

As you can see, it has been a while since I've worn it and I need to update the dateblush (btw, why is it that now my photos get turned 90 degrees when I insert them?)

TESSST

 

Also, I have a question for the long time Loungers... A few years ago (end of 2009/ beginning of 2010), someone posted a great quote

saying that if you want quality, you're going to have to pay the proper price for it. I would have liked to used that quote, but I have not been able to locate it so far... This is a long shot, but would anyone remember that quote?

 

Cheers,

 

Francois

BTW was the quote something like "Quality remains once the price has been

forgotten"?

Gorgeous!

Francois, this may be what you're looking for?

"You get what you pay for"

"There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey.

It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose alittle money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.

The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot.....It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. And, if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."

John Ruskin 1819 - 1900

(NB: I've just returned from a vacation - it's good to be back with VC!!)

Best wishes

Tony

Thank you Tony - You are my HERO!!

I am absolutely thrilled by both colour and quality of this watch.

Now I regret waiting so long to take ownership of a VC.

I've got this one on

It's my favorite for timing my coffee, and when I fly.  Being an aerospace geek, I love timing thactual flight times. From take off to landing. :-)

I do the same thing with my Overseas Chrono, Dan

By the way, any chance we can get together in the next couple of weeks?  Let me know if any dates work for you.

Safe travels,
