a vacheron constantin dinner with the quai de ille

the cool and friendly folks at vc invited us down for dinner at novus at the national museum on wednesday to discover more about their fantastic quai de ille here in Singapore.

the quai de ille is vc's most innovative product of late, having several interesting features from case to dial design and adding in personalisation to boot. my view of vc is that it may have lost its way in the past but now it is finding a more certain path forward. it will be interesting to see how their new lines do in the changing horological landscape.

the vc men gave a presentation on the watch, its innovations & security features

& the vc ladies were kind enough to bring the watches
around the room later that evening...
