Vacheron Constantin With Indonesian Faces

Posted on July 22nd, 2009 at 3:04 am by Akhyari


Vacheron Constantin is a Swiss manufacturer of prestigious watches and a brand of the Richemont group. It currently employs around 400 people worldwide, most of whom are based in the manufacturing plant; a modern building in Geneva. The brand is established in almost 80 countries around the world, distributed through 15 boutiques that sell no other brand, as well as a network of over 500 carefully selected points of sale. Previous Vacheron Constantin owners included Napoleon Bonaparte, Pope Pius XI, the Duke of Windsor and Harry Truman.

Vacheron Constantin (VC) was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron. This makes it the oldest watch manufacturer in the world with an uninterrupted history. Besides being a young businessman, Vacheron was also a talented craftsman. In 1770 his company created the first complication, and nine years later he designed the first engine-turned dials.

So, what about VC that has something to do with Indonesia? VC has released series of prestige watches with Indonesian traditional masks on it. Javanese mask (main picture above) and Lombok mask got this honor. See the pictures  and the video below.
