Vacheron Constantin invited guests to two unique events this week to celebrate the opening of its first Boutique in Paris. The luxury watchmakers hosted an evening of ballet at the Palais Garnier, and, the next day, a celebration at its boutique at 2 rue de la Paix in the French capital.
Mrs. Aurélie Filippetti, French Minister of Culture and Communication, and Juan-Carlos Torres, CEO of Vacheron Constantin, welcomed some 2000 guests at the ballet, which was based on works of the repertoire as well as two creations interpreted by the young dancers of the French Dance School and the leading dancers of the Opéra National de Paris. Guests included Mrs. Lily Safra, Bernadette Chirac, Valérie Trierweiler, Alain Delon and Stéphane Bern.
The next evening at the boutique, Vacheron Constantin presented several exclusive watches created for the occasion. Among them, as an ultimate refinement and in the lines of the exceptional timekeepers designed by the fine watchmaking manufacturer since its creation in 1755, Vacheron Constantin unveiled a new collection dedicated to the tercentenary of the French Dance School. Named the Hommage à l’Art de la Danse, this collection of three timepieces features the ancestral art of Grand Feu Grisaille enameling.
