Domů Tagy Constantin
No one at Vacheron Constantin can be unaware of what a passion for fine watchmaking involves. For without passion, there are no real expectations. And though yesterday’s cabinotiers have disappeared, their memory lingers on near the workbenches in the halls of the Manufacture, and today is reawakened by each watchmaker and craftsman, whose movements rekindle their spirit and perpetuate their knowledge.
Italy - Milan, October 21, 2009 - The Vacheron Constantin Dream Room was inaugurated today at the Pisa Orologeria fine watch boutique on Via Verri (at the corner of Via Montenapoleone 9) in Milan.

Vacheron Constantin organised an exceptional evening event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York as part of the inauguration of “African and Oceanic Art from the Barbier-Mueller Museum, Geneva: a Legacy of Collecting”, an exhibition dedicated to the masterpieces from the Barbier-Mueller family collection and supported by Vacheron Constantin.
To mark the tenth anniversary of Action Innocence, Vacheron Constantin has created a unique timepiece whose skeletonised, hand-decorated manual-winding movement, the flattest in the world, represents the very pinnacle of the decorative Métiers d’Art so precious to the Geneva-based manufacture.
Introduced in the 19th century by an industry long threatened with the scourge of counterfeiting, the Hallmark of Geneva is now regarded as a true horological philosophy and the symbol of horological perfection. Given legal status in 1886, the Hallmark of Geneva is probably one of the oldest professional hallmarks in any industry, recognised as a label of origin, but especially as a guarantee of superior quality. But while it is highly prized in the world of Haute Horlogerie, not just anyone who wants to can join the select circle of manufactories able to obtain it.
Vacheron Constantin was delighted to receive the prestigious Best Tourbillon of the Year award for its Malte Tourbillon Regulator at the 2008 Premier Middle East Watches, Jewellery & Pens Awards held at the Ritz Carlton in Bahrain on 25 November.
