Vacheron Constantin recently hosted a Collector’s Dinner at the Chedi Hotel in Oman in collaboration with the brand’s retail partner Mistal.
This event heralded the unveiling of Vacheron Constantin’s New Harmony line and was graced by the brand’s CEO, Mr. Juan-Carlos Torres and Managing Director of Mistal Mr. Dharmesh Khimji. The event witnessed the first revealing of the new collection in the region was attended by niche collectors and VIP guests from around Oman.
The event also celebrated the 260th anniversary of Vacheron Constantin’s founding. Issued in limited editions, the contemporary timepieces feature a new cushion shape and a design inspired by one of the brand’s first wristwatch chronographs introduced in 1928. Representing elegant horological complications that constitute some of the most highly sought after timepieces as well as most complex to produce, the monopusher chronograph models are complemented by a ladies’ double-pusher chronograph. A trio of dual-time watches housing a new in-house movement rounds off this unusual range of timepieces.
The harmony line features a reinvented cushion shape that has drawn its inspiration from the architectural lines and distinctive design of the first wrist chronographs made by the Manufacture in the late 1920s. Through its balanced three-dimensional “shape-in-shape” approach, Vacheron Constantin once again demonstrates its expertise as a watchmaking sculptor. This is achieved through a sophisticated case construction dedicated to precision, readability and comfort on the wrist. Moreover, this new generous and boldly distinctive silhouette complements the existing range of round or tonneau-shaped cases characterizing the classic collections by the Maison.
