Hong Kong-based watch collectors in need of some inspiration should head to Landmark Prince’s Building this month, where some of the world’s greatest vintage wristwatches are the subject of a brand-new Vacheron Constantin exhibition.
A carefully curated selection of 20th-century models, all of which have been recovered and restored by Vacheron Constantin's watch experts, are being brought to Hong Kong to be sold alongside a certificate of authenticity and two-year guarantee.
Vacheron Constantin has long breathed new life into its historic pieces with its stunning Les Collectionneurs line, which is led by a division that tracks down the brand’s most exceptional vintage and antique creations.
"Les Collectionneurs represents another facet of Vacheron Constantin,” says Christian Selmoni, style and heritage director. “The collection perpetuates this precious link between past and present, enabling our clientele of connoisseurs and collectors to acquire restored vintage pieces directly through the maison, which is a real guarantee.
"As for the events organised around the world to unveil this pieces, they attract both seasoned collectors and young generations eager to dive more deeply into watchmaking history.”
