I had the great please to be invited to see the 20 piece collection from the Atelier Les Cabinotiers and the distinct  honor to meet  Leslie Kobrin, President of Americas for Vacheron Constantin.  A very passionate Lady with a vision for Vacheron to elevate it to a place where it can show the special talents that have to offer bespoke, one-of-a-kind watches called the Les Cabinotiers collection.  


These watches can take from 18 months to several years to complete and can meet a clients wildest dreams.  However, in this day and age where everything is instantaneous Vacheron has put together a collection to inspire its clientele with these 20 unique pieces that are available to purchase without years of waiting.  Hopefully this will give the collectors some inspiration for the direction they can take their dream watch.  Again we are not talking about a small modification to a watch in their catalog but a watch that you can dream they will produce a “pièce unique" - one-of-a-kind for you.  The prices range from a few hundred thousand to well over a million dollars for these watches made Vacheron Les Cabinotiers who are some of Geneva’s most experienced watchmakers.


Les Cabinotiers tour of United States tour began on February 6th in Beverly Hills, CA.  with next stops in Miami and finishing at their boutique in New York.  All visits of the collection are by appointment so please give them a call.  You will not regret a moment when you get a chance to the watches in person.



Unfortunately I do not know the exact names of all the pieces nor did I have a chance to take great pictures due to the low light, but here are a few to inspire you.  Please enjoy these bespoke, one-of-a-kind watches known as Les Cabinotiers collection.

The dial color is more sky blue than the press pictures but it gives you a general feel. What a lovely piece to hold not to big at 44mm and not to thick either.

I wish I could have taken better pictures but at least you get the spirit and the direction that Vacheron wants to go.

Witnessing a company that... looks forward and raises the bar, it's always refreshing. Without this, a job remains a job. When a job becomes "creation", "artistry" it pushes buttons deep inside, IMO. Thanks for the heads-up, Bill

You are very correct. In a crowded market popularity against competence you have to find a way to feature your talents. The fast and disposable world is a challenge to tradition.

Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist. Credit where its due that FP Journe made a new split-second watch for Only Watch 2017, and (unlikely) might see the possibility that this may appear as a regular production piece! With the recent announcement of Only Watch 2017, it comes as no surprise to expect a feast of interesting timepieces up for viewing. Typically, most brands ... .
