The mechanism of beauty

As the Vacheron Constantin brand philosophy goes, “Beauty is timeless when it’s done right.” It’s also about adhering to the concept of how the tiniest details make the most significant difference as well as championing the unique by creating “One of Not Many.”

These concepts have pulsed within the Vacheron Constantin universe for more than 266 years. And when timepiece connoisseurs talk about the prestigious realm of Haute Horlogerie, they laud how the maison has been enriched by expertise passed on across generations of master watchmakers and artisans.

The new Vacheron Constantin Boutique in Greenbelt 5: Contemporary elegance

Watch enthusiasts in our own part of the world are thrilled as Vacheron Constantin opens its first standalone boutique in the Philippines at Greenbelt 5, Manila. The boutique houses the complete Vacheron Constantin timepiece collection from simple to high complications, as well as boutique exclusive models, demonstrating the brand’s technical and aesthetic creativity.

“We are delighted to welcome enthusiasts and connoisseurs to Vacheron Constantin’s world of Haute Horlogerie and tradition in Manila, Philippines,” says Gael Porte, managing director of Vacheron Constantin Southeast Asia and Australia. “With this new location, we seek to offer our clients the best space for exclusive services and share our Maison’s commitment to Haute Horlogerie, where they can discover the know-how and tradition that sets us apart as ‘One of Not Many.’”

The new boutique in Greenbelt 5 boasts interiors that embody the principles of contemporary elegance, its intimate space focusing on private bespoke appointments. Customers are welcome to discover the Maison’s Patrimony, Traditionnelle, Overseas and Fiftysix collections — with a range of mid to high complications including the exclusive Traditionnelle Complete Calendar and Overseas Perpetual Calendar. 

Highlights also include the Égérie collection dedicated to women which combines the worlds of Haute Couture and Haute Horlogerie, sharing the same passion for excellence and beauty. Behind classical and timeless lines, the collection shows many audacious features. The signature touch of the Égérie timepieces is a daring off-centered display, designed around two intertwined circles, featuring the date or moon phase. 

Just last year, Vacheron Constantin celebrated the 100th anniversary of an iconic model: the Historiques American 1921. The Historiques collection embodies Vacheron Constantin’s creative energy, guided by an identity that celebrates heritage and dares to deliver the unexpected. The maison celebrates this icon particularly appreciated by collectors with two interpretations of the original model, in white gold, which are on view in the boutique. 

The Vacheron Constantin brand proves that its timepieces are a culmination, a mechanical distillation of 266 years of how master watchmakers and artisans in a maison plot the mechanism of beauty.
