Vintage Ads: The Series – Intro!

 
 By: blomman Mr Blue : June 14th, 2011-12:39

Hello Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Lovers,

 

After 1 ½ years of non-stop work with 3000+ hours, tomorrow afternoon I will finally start a very longed after vacation!

 

smile

 

To celebrate this I like to announce the start of an upcoming series of posts I plan to post in the forum – Vintage Ads: The Series.

 

Earlier I promised to put together a post about vintage ads and catalogues.

 

But I have come to the conclusion that it will be better if I split it up into several posts.

 

I hope you will agree with me…

 

To state a few things about these upcoming posts:

 

I will try to highlight one watch/one type of watch or a theme in each post even if some of the ads show several different watches or themes.

 

I know there are many more ads then these I will show, but I have decided only to include ads that I have in original paper form, if you have others please add them.

 

These posts will not be in any particular order, I will write them as I find suiting…

 

This will be a long term project of mine here in the forum.

 

Sounds mysterious?

 

Like the world of Jaeger-LeCoultre!

So, with start tomorrow: Vintage Ads: The Series!

 

Stay tuned!

I very much look forward to this series.

Have a nice vacation. I hope that you take some pictures of your different watches in their element during this vacation.

Best regards,

George

That I will “document” my watches during my vacation…
