Exhibit: Treasures of Vacheron Constantin


In collaboration with Vacheron Constantin, the National
Museum of Singapore will hold the first major public exhibition of 180
exceptional pieces from the world’s oldest watch manufacturer.  From June
24 to August 14, “Treasures of Vacheron Constantin – A Legacy of Watchmaking
Since 1755” aims to shed light on more than 250 years of creativity and
horological know-how.

Conceived as an educational journey revolving around the
spirit of the cabinotiers of the 18th century,
the exhibition is an exploration of the evolution of the measurement of time,
its crafts and artistic influences, a trilogy that has defined the history of
Vacheron Constantin since its foundation. The centerpiece of this exhibit
is the exquisite pocket watch Les Bergers of Arcadie (pictured above and below) created in 1923, embodying the magical alchemy of time-making from centuries of
creativity and innovation. In fact, Vacheron Constantin CEO Juan Carlos Torres says this watch embodies the the totality of Vacheron Constantin’s watchmaking philosophy. 

Another highlight of the exhibition is a pocket watch from the 1750s created by founder Jean-Marc Vacheron himself, signed J M Vacheron a Geneve. This leads to other important and significant timepieces from the company, including a 1929 high complication wristwatch made for King Fouad I of Egypt and the magnificent Tour de l’Ile from 2005, the most complicated wristwatch in the world at that time.

The exhibition will showcase rare letters of
correspondence between Jean-Marc Vacheron and Francois Constantin, as well as
machines invented by George Leschot and the Genevan workbenches of the House’s cabinotiers. An engraver, gem-setter, guillocheur, enameller and watchmaker will also be on location to give visitors a glimpse into the rarefied world of haute horlogerie
