On Thursday 17th June, Vacheron hosted a small dinner at the Mimolette Restaurant launching its 2009 collection here in Singapore. It was a grand evening of great food, great company and very entertaining jazz trio and singer - Ms Joanna Dong.

The food was in great but the true highlight was the new 2009 collection and the long awaited 1921 model with a new calibre that brought the nostalgia back to Vacheron (listed at over SGD39K). A driver's watch with the dial being angled to the right with the 12 at where 2 is normally found. The crown is also relcated at the top right lug away from the usual 3 position. A few wrist shots were captured together with the other offerings that evening.

This year is the 30th Anniversary of the Hour Glass and to commemorate it, several brands including Gerald Genta are releasing some limited editions with rare combinations.

In this case, 30 pieces of the Gefica Bronze with a Grey and Black dial combination. I shot this watch together with a few other limited editions (soon to follow here) and decided that its best appreciated by seeing it in high resolution as a wallpaper. I find the Gefica an intriguing watch. Clearly Genta is well known for its jumping hour watches but its the Bronze cases that catches the eye. In these captures, I decided to try to capture raw character of the metal through low key lighting that shows off some of the graininess of the metal.
