i blogged about the exhibition earlier here and we're coming to about the last 2 weeks of it. I do recommend watch nuts...uhm i mean aficionados go by and there's also other interesting exhibits on at the national museum to check out if one was inclined. the kickoff of the exhibition was a fine dinner event, where Tommy Koh was the guest of honour... i remember the fine lobster and steak served and the fine wines it was paired with... alot of beautiful ladies which will of course gravitate towards u if you're wearing a fine watch (note: spoken tongue firmly in cheek) and a superb atmosphere befitting a 255th anniversary gala dinner for Vacheron Constantin. tip of the hat to David and his team and all the VC folks on hand to make this a successful event.
next to the exhibition... i am not documenting all of whats there of course but just highlighting a number of pieces that caught my eye... the cool thing about it is that many of the exhibits did catch my eye :) and i did enjoy viewing these luvlies. the unfortunate thing is that i could not hold them, activate their mechanisms and savor them in that way... but there will be other beauties to examine of course and popping by a modern day VC boutique or retailer will certainly give one such an opportunity ;)
beautiful enamel dial work seems to be a thing of the past
participate in the ones that are done... but there was a time...
and that's all from me. a glimpse into a wonderful exhibition and I hope for those who can't view it personally that they enjoyed the post, and those of you in or passing by SIN whose interest is piqued, do go by the National Museum... i'm currently saving my pennies for a 1921 Americaine... sigh... signing off for now, raph
