a very good dinner on halloween nite with vacheron constantin

yesterday was a nice night... the food was great, the company excellent and the watches impressive... i headed down to bellini grande after an interesting day at work having been invited by Vacheron Constantin for this dinner... I would like to thank Kok Choon(a top guy) for this and our gracious and charming host, David Heng and his capable team for a very nice dinner affair... i'll tell the rest of the story with pictures from the night...

the venue was ghoulishly decked out for halloween


i spotted 2 vampires... uhm more like vamps wif some nice VC pieces on...


just a couple more pictures of the lovely models for the night... (oh and there were male models too but uhm
somehow they didn't show up in the photos... spooky




ok it wasn't all just vampish models there... some of my mates were too
me, jeff and lionel



raphmeister, stefano and teng

As you may know, Vacheron Constantin has more than 250 years of uninterrupted history. its a haute horlogerie brand that has a rich heritage and impressive values of excellence, creativity, social responsibility, respecting and passing of traditions and sharing of passion... they have some very nice timepieces in their collection...

onto some fine watches then... malte openworked

the malte tonneau haute hoaillerie openworked tourbillon...
a blingy and impressive piece... this falls in the 'if you have to ask how
much it costs, than you can't afford it' category



the lovely rose gold overseas chrono... its hefty and solid built and a worthy
contender to
the royal oak offshore... i prefer the dual time chocolate dial
version but that ones limited and wasn't around for the nite...


ladies overseas dual time with ice on the sides

the simple and elegant chronometre royal... a lovely piece


the royal eagle chrono... interestingly, the royal eagle line was the first that got
me
interested to know more about the brand a long long time ago

2 more pics of the mighty and solid overseas in rose gold...

i really like the bracelet design on this piece and how it suits it so well...

next up is photos of my dinner companions who were dinner... oops i mean some photos of my dinner companions and some of dinner the menu for the nite was
excellent and there was a nice wine pairing for each course
