Having just returned from a short trip, after unpacking the first think I do is check the Lounge . Another wonderful report Alex, with a very interesting line-up of novelties from the show. Nice to see further development of the Overseas line. As it steers towards haute horlogerie I hope the sporty edge isn't lost. Of course, the Metiers d'Art pieces are jaw-dropping gorgeous. Maybe its just me, or the lingering impression left by last year's blockbusters, but this year seems to have been a bit subdued in terms of VC's product. Overall, was there a cautious overtone to SIHH, considering world markets?
