Vacheron Journe Artisti

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - SPLIT SECONDS -

Vacheron Con­stantin ded­i­cated it­self to the “Les Journées des Métiers d’Art” or “JEMA” for the fourth con­sec­u­tive year, show­cas­ing in Paris, London, Mi­lan and Geneva, where four dif­fer­ent con­cep­tual exhibitions aimed to con­nect the pub­lic with the field of con­tem­po­rary art and its artists.

A pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled “Trans­met­tre. Per­corsi di Sapere” was held in Mi­lan, and high­lighted the tra­di­tional skills trans­mit­ted through a col­lec­tion of 80 pic­tures taken over a three­year pe­riod around the world. It con­veyed to the au­di­ence au­then­tic hu­man re­la­tion­ships wit­nessed through the bond be­tween a master and his ap­pren­tice.

In London, a tal­ented assem­bly of de­sign­ers and crafts­peo­ple gath­ered at the Royal Academy of Arts for a cock­tail hosted by Vacheron Con­stantin, in honor of the “Crafted – Mak­ers of the Ex­cep­tional” ex­hi­bi­tion that would take place. Amongst the es­teemed ex­hibitors was Method Stu­dio, com­mis­sioned by Vacheron Con­stantin to hand­craft a cus­tom oak and leather watch case for their tour­bil­lon minute re­peater.

An ex­hi­bi­tion aptly named “Pe­riod Room” was held in Paris at the Palais de Tokyo, pre­sent­ing the knowl­edge and skills demon­strated by artists and ar­ti­sans through their in­no­va­tive and con­tem­po­rary in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary cre­ations.

Lastly, in Geneva, a watch­maker and en­graver from the Mai­son were on hand to dis­play their master skills for those vis­it­ing the “L’art et la Matière” ex­hi­bi­tion. By demon­strat­ing the var­i­ous stages of cal­iber con­struc­tion and dial dec­o­ra­tion, the ex­hi­bi­tion aimed to en­gage the pub­lic closer with the of­ten­times, mys­te­ri­ous world of horol­ogy.
