Vacheron Constantin presents Les Collectionneurs, an exquisite and rare selection of 18 travelling vintage timepieces, brilliantly restored to pristine condition, is now available exclusively at the boutique's store at ION Orchard in Singapore.
For a limited time only, watch connoisseurs and collectors who covet the heritage of world's oldest watchmaking manufacture (since 1755) have the chance now to purchase certified vintage timepieces presented in specially-created Vacheron Constantin cases, with a certificate of authenticity by the Manufacture. Additionally, a two-year guarantee is included.

Platinum open-face pocket watch, 1931
With art deco radiant arabic numerals and indexes, this timepiece is ultra-thin with a thickness of 3.80mm, impressive considering its 1931 manufacture date
These vintage timepieces were carefully sourced and hand-picked from private collectors and at auctions, and thereafter the Maison's heritage specialists in Geneva undertook the task of refurbishing them. These watches allow enthusiasts to indulge in the legacy - as well as exemplify - the consistent and uninterrupted dedication of Vacheron Constantin to watchmaking excellence for over 263 years
Les Collectionneurs includes pocket watches manufactured between 1922 and 1949, and wristwatches manufactured between 1927 and 1993. Amongst there include an original model 6073 that forms the basis for the new collection, FIFTYSIX, launched this year at SIHH.
