An Evening With Vacheron Constantin

Recently Vacheron Constantin hosted RedBar Vancouver for an exclusive evening to view their new flagship boutique that has been open for just over a month now. This boutique marks a first for the brand in western Canada.

Situated on Alberni Street it fits seamlessly with neighbouring luxury boutiques. Rich tones of dark wood, leather, and chrome accents adorn the interior of the boutique making it feel luxurious, but still warm and welcoming.

The beautiful open-worked caseback on the Patrimony minute repeater. A majority of Vacheron Constantin timepieces bear the Poinçon de Genève or the Geneva Hallmark stamp awarded by an independent Swiss organization that only stamps timepieces of the finest quality that meet the criteria of having provenance, craftsmanship, and reliability.

Among other things Vacheron Constantin is also known for gem setting and artistic craft. An example of meticulously hand set diamonds filling the dial, bezel, and lugs seen above. Photo Credit: Jonaton Montpetit

The Fiftysix Complete Calendar in stainless steel. Month, day of week, pointer date, moonphase indicator, and central running seconds all presented with a more modern look and feel. Photo Credit: Julian Fok

The Fiftysix automatic date in stainless steel. Introduced last year this is the most accessible timepiece in the Vacheron Constantin lineup with a more approachable price point targeting a younger demographic. The Fiftysix collection is a great introductory timepiece for those that want a timepiece from the brand, but perhaps they are not ready to invest in a more complicated piece. Definitely a great value proposition from a brand with a reputation for being one of the top 3 watch brands in the world. Photo Credit: Ryan Fowler
