VACHERON CON­STANTIN’S 260th AN­NIVER­SARY CEL­E­BRA­TION

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

Hong Kong’s glow­ing sky­line served as the back­drop as Vacheron Con­stantin, one of the old­est watch­mak­ers in the world, cel­e­brated its 260th an­niver­sary on the 100th floor of the ICC. Fol­low­ing gath­er­ings in Geneva and Shang­hai, the Swiss watchmaker in­vited a se­lect group of guests to em­bark on an ex­plo­rative jour­ney in dis­cov­er­ing the man­u­fac­turer’s uni­verse through three art­works. An­other work of art in it­self was the mixed chocolate dessert, de­signed to re­sem­ble the move­ment of a watch. A high­light of the evening was the un­veil­ing of Vacheron Con­stantin’s most com­pli­cated watch ever, the Ref­er­ence 57260, a time­piece that com­bines unimag­in­able com­pli­ca­tion with tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tion. It was shown to guests ahead of its pub­lic un­veil­ing at the Watches & Won­ders ex­hi­bi­tion the fol­low­ing day.
