Each year on the eve of the opening of SIHH we hold an Hour Club dinner where a gruoup of VC collectors gather together in Geneva and catch up, meet and have a great time together and mainly talk about what they expect to see the next day at SIHH.

These dinners being in high demand we held two on Jan 17 and 18

The guests gathered for an evening of fine food, wine, watches and great company in a private home in the old town of Geneva

Benjamin Luizy (on the left in the picture below)   was the chef in charge of our evening, he is young and extremely talented and considered one of Switzerland's top chefs. The gusts could spent time in the kitchen and watch his team preparing our delightful amuse bouches

No faces shown to protectthe innocent but all in all it was a fantastic event and one that I look forward to each year as its great to catch up with old frends and meet new Vacheronistas smiley

See you all in 11 months!

More like protecting the "not so innocent" :-)

AND THANK YOU FOR THAT!  11 months, and I can't wait.  smileyyes

Fine, since I do not have permission to show their faces, I suppose I will protect the "not so innocent" too.

But here are some other photos from what was indeed a wonderful event.  This was my first trip and it did not disappoint.  Vacheron, and Dan and Alex and Veronique and many others are amazing and gracious hosts.

PS: Not sure why they are sideways...

It was a great night

With great hosts and chef. Great Vacheronistas all over the place and dream-watches everywhere.

It would be nice to see more pictures, especially of the People but I understand Godfather's choice yes

Why not issue face masks? 

This could be the basis of a 'guess-who' competition... surprise
