The new Vacheron Constantin temporary exhibition offers a fascinating vision of travel. By revealing major aesthetic and technical developments through 57 watches from its private collection, it testifies to the constant concern of the Maison to create measuring instruments reflecting the needs of the most demanding travellers. Located on the first floor of the historical building on the Quai de l’Ile in Geneva, the exhibition features timepieces selected from the more than 1,300 objects composing the Vacheron Constantin private museum collection.

Their common denominator is their ability to guarantee a reliable reading of time despite the constraints of travel relating to conquering the world. The visit symbolically opens with François Constantin’s 1840 trunk and a marine chronometer symbolising navigating instruments and serving as a reminder that this spirit of travel is profoundly anchored at the very heart of the company philosophy.
