The Vacheron Constantin Overseas event in Paris

Avatar
foversta
There is something strange in Paris which is very typical of the French behaviour: 90% of the watches events are organized on Tuesday or Thursday. Why? Because on Monday, it is the day after the week-end so brands think that people are busy, Wednesday is kids' day and Friday we leave Paris to spend the week-end somewhere else. And the sad side of the story is that with only two days available, we can have several cocktail parties the same day. But at Vacheron, they try to do things differently and the latest .....Story

A fun afternoon at the Vacheron boutique of Paris

Avatar

One of my biggest pleasures is to walk around and on the rue de la Paix, Place Vendôme during the week-end. And when you receive an invitation from Vacheron to attend an event on Saturday to discover several novelties, you know that the day will be even more exciting than usual! It is the reason why I came to the boutique at the beginning of the afternoon with a quick step... and I discovered an unusual car parked in front of the entrance door... This car was belonging to David, the shoe and leather cleaner! .....Story

January 15, 1942: do you know what your watch was doing?

Avatar
tick-talk
Tomorrow would have been the most appropriate date to share this story, but a certain major watch show will deservedly take the limelight then so I'm hoping to assuage your anticipation with a small distraction about a Vacheron & Constantin watch. Officially this Chronometre Royal deck watch came to life in 1940 and was sold that same year, according to VC archives, to the Royal Navy as a movement only, without case. In fact it had a case, just not the usual silver one but a rudimentary brass holder with ... ...Story

For a collector, a watch is a topic which is too important to be seen as a mere fashion accessory. But it is also the final touch which can perfectly complement an outfit or, in case of bad choices, which may impair the most sophisticated dress code. The links between watchmaking and the world of haute couture are obvious but rarely staged by brands. One of the latest manifestations of this proximity was conducted by Urwerk thanks to the interesting approach with Timothy Everest through the UR-110 "Eastwood" which gave the opportunity to use tweed fabric and wood...Story

Hi all, In my quick watch trip to Geneva I had the opportunity to try also the two flagship models of the new Overseas collection Great, really great watches, particularly impressed by the Perpetual Calendar to die for, but, there is always on or more but: 1) it a shame VC decided to produce these two versions in WG only a steel version would have been a real killer (let's wait and see) 2) retail price out of this world, especially in this period, and I'm not referring to the WG models only, take for instance ... ...Story

Vacheron Constantin: Chronograph Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 in Pink Gold

Avatar

It is not a big surprise. A few months after the presentation of the Chronograph Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 in platinum that I described in this article , Vacheron Constantin unveiled a pink gold version. I will not describe with details this watch since it has basically the same features than the platinum version: only the case, indexes and hands material or color change. But I take the opportunity of the ability I had to handle it a few days ago to display some pictures taken at the boutique of the .....Story

As you know, the new Overseas collection was unveiled this year at the SIHH. This new collection was made of 2 basic watches: one three hands watch and one chronograph. I will not forget to mention that two ultra-thin watches in gold were the "precious" addition to this collection with a two hands piece and a Perpetual Calendar. But in my mind, something was missing: a true travel watch...Story

Hands on review of the Vacheron Constantin Quai de l'Ile in stainless steel

Avatar

The Quai de l'Ile collection symbolizes for me the experiment conducted by Vacheron Constantin since its launch to provide an extremely large customization to the watches through multiple available settings and options. By using a configurator, the customer can choose the materials of the case (including the bezel and the flanks), the complications, the types of dial and thus define the watch that best matches his tastes. This approach, however interesting, is facing the problem of the industrial organization ... ...Story

The year 2015 was eventful for Vacheron Constantin with the presentation of the new collection Harmony which led to the introduction of several handwind or automatic in-house chronograph calibers. However, the new calibers 3200, 3300 and 3500 haven\'t caused the movement 1141 (based on the Lemania 2310) to be discarded. It is enhanced by the manufacture and belongs to the category of the most beautiful handwind chronograph movements of the high horology segment. The Harmony collection however brought an additional .....Story
