The winner of the NY boutique teaser contest is... drum roll...


Congratulations to all participating, you were really good as I didn't think the teasers were so easy!

The names of all having found the 3 correct answers were put in a bag and the innocent hand having made the draw was no other than that of The North America VC preseident: Hugues de Pins.

Congratulations Marko, please email me your full name, address and phone number to alexandre.ghotbi @ vacheron-constantin. com

French Atlantic coast called Noirmoutier... seemed like one of the rare places in Europe which had sun last week!

Nice place for HL retirement.

Wow, wow,,,wowblush

I don't think I would have been as happy if I had won a lottery prize......indecision

Thank you VC, thank you Hugues and thank you Alex!!!  And thank you to all the Loungers for their kindness.  This is truly something that I will treasure.  What a place to be at, it's adictive, sometimes I visit the site five times a day, just to see what is going on.  A great place, nice discussions, nice people, only grumble is that the fleabay "artists" and "present from grandad"-receivers should be taken off the site once they post their (usually fuzzy) photosangry and usual questions about how much their heirloom is worth.....

I,m HAPPY todaysmileysmileysmiley.  I wish you all to have a day as happy is mine.

Congratulations Marko!

08/03/2011 - 03:50

Standards.... gone to the dogs...

We need another iPad2 competition (and I do like the competitions) even the rools are made up as you go along. I demand a recount!

A word of explanation is called for.....
08/03/2011 - 22:39

Alex, Whilst we all acknowledge the kindness of Mr Hugues de Pins for selecting the winning name in the current competition, I feel that you have 'brushed-over' our lovely Emilie which has, I know, caused ripples throughout the Lounge.frown

Would you please confirm, as a matter of urgency, and stability that Emilie is well and will remain a future choice for competition draws.heart

Incidentally, welcome back from paradise Island! Hopefully those few days have allowed you to recharge the batteries.


NB: For Emilieheartxx

reste assured Tony, Emilie is still "innocent hand" of choice :-)
08/04/2011 - 12:35


Your few words Alex......I couldn't ask for more!
08/04/2011 - 12:54

Suddenly the future looks brightyes


Tony here's a gift for you....
08/04/2011 - 15:57

Now, that is a good one, Alex! (nt)
08/04/2011 - 18:34


Emilie - Your kind thoughts and good wishes are reciprocated....
08/04/2011 - 23:29

Emilie, I've heard through the grapevine that your boss will be sending you a dozen red roses and a box of your favourite chocolates in appreciation of all your hardwork.   I can tell you on good authority that my many friends in the 'Lounge full support this initiative.


Take care - you're never far from our thoughts!heart

Best wishes,
