From metiers d’art creations inspired by various cultures to intricate skeleton watches, the 2014 releases from Vacheron Constantin have left a deep impression on us. But we would expect nothing less: Coupling intricate artistic crafts with fine timekeeping mechanisms is a forte that the Swiss manufacture has honed over some 260 years. If you’re making a trip to Geneva before October 31, be sure to make an appointment to check out Travels & Adornments, an exhibition at the Vacheron Constantin manufacture. More than 40 historical models tell the rich story of the maison’s horological decorations. By appointment only (tel: 022-930-20-05).
