Although Vacheron Constantin watches have been available for years in Australia through various authorised retailers, the company has never had its own stand-alone boutique. However, this year, things are about to change.
Today, the maison announced the opening of its first boutique in Australia. Located at 88 Collins Street Melbourne, this new exclusive space exemplifies luxury and sophistication and allows both watch enthusiasts and collectors a chance to further appreciate the culture, history and tradition of excellence that defines the world of Vacheron Constantin. The new boutique also creates an intimate space for enthusiasts, displaying its exquisite timepieces in refined showcases.
The finishing has been created according to a detailed and elegant color scheme, emanating a warm and comfortable atmosphere dedicated to technical and precious Haute Horlogerie.
“We are delighted to welcome our clientele of connoisseurs and watch collectors to our first boutique. It will enhance our Australian client’s understanding of Vacheron Constantin, and the Maison’s commitment to ‘La Belle Haute-Horlogerie'” said Philippine Vidal, Brand Director for Vacheron Constantin Australia.
Choosing Australia to open a Vacheron Constantin boutique was no coincidence, since this is a location carrying powerful symbolism. In 1881, William Ernest Cooke, the renowned Australian astronomer, wrote to Vacheron Constantin regarding the commission of his pocket watch. Ever since, the Maison has enjoyed a flourishing relationship with the country.
Nine exclusive Vacheron Constantin restored vintages pieces from Les Collectionneurs will be available for purchase in celebration of the new boutique opening. The exhibition will run from From November to January 2020. The pieces from the collection, come with a 2 year warranty as well as a digital certification of authentication with Blockchain technology that was recently announced by the Maison.
In addition to this, the boutique will also offer the entire range of collections from the Geneva-based Manufacture, as well as exclusive boutique models, testifying to the elegant and refined design, the technical excellence and aesthetic perfection which define the Vacheron Constantin ancestral tradition and unique know-how.
