Vacheron Constantin - An Artistic Exhibition

The Manufacture Vacheron Constantin is bringing to Singapore a special heritage exhibition to their ION Orchard boutique that will run until end September, showcasing the brand’s artistic craftsmanship.

Offering an authentic journey across continents, Vacheron Constantin brings to Singapore a new themed exhibition dedicated to the history of horological adornments. It sets the stage for 14 historical models – chosen from the private collection of the Manufacture – illustrating various major artistic movements. A tour that testifies to masterful gestures and abundant creativity rarely equalled in the field of decorative arts, a hallmark of the Geneva school.
