The world’s most famous watch manufacturer with over 250 years of uninterrupted history, Vacheron Constantin opened its second boutique in Beijing at the Oriental Plaza – the first highlight of year 2008. Located at the first floor of Beijing Oriental Plaza, the newly opened Vacheron Constantin boutique marks the brand’s 9th in China, and the 17th worldwide.
In line with the design aesthetic of Vacheron Constantin’s boutiques in Geneva, the new shop features a simple yet elegant interior design highlighted by precious materials such as wood, marble and leather, all reflecting the serene intimacy and warm atmosphere characteristic of the Vacheron Constantin spirit. This new boutique offers the entire range of services that Vacheron Constantin is dedicated to provide. The exquisite timepieces of Vacheron Constantin are displayed in the refined showcases, while the VIP area enables the customers to enjoy the distinctive shopping experience when viewing the elegant watches.
To celebrate the grand opening of the new boutique, Vacheron Constantin has showcased the most precious timepieces – High Jewellery Collection and High Complication Collection, which embodies the quintessential know-how and masterful craftsmanship of Vacheron Constantin in the specialized world of decorative applied arts and creative horology.
· The Métiers d’Art Kalla Lune, infused with the creative spirit so preciously nurtured at Vacheron Constantin and embodying the talent of watch and jewellery craftsmen who are masters of a traditional savoir-faire passed down over 250 years, is a true masterpiece and the unequivocal benchmark in the marriage between haute horlogerie and high jewellery.
· The 1972 Cambrée Large Haute Joaillerie model, an exceptional creation distinguished by gem-setting verging on perfection as it flows along the case, dial and crown, literally lights up the feminine wrist. Stemming from the sparkling association between the case adorned with 106 baguette-cut diamonds, the Haute Joaillerie version of the 1972 sparkles with dazzling fire to sublimate feminine beauty.
· Malte Tonneau Haute Joaillerie Openworked Tourbillon is a perfect example of the interior and exterior beauty of Vacheron Constantin’s creations. This blend of contemporary design and sophisticated horological technology composes an elegantly assertive personality and is clearly destined for connoisseurs and collectors.
