Vacheron Constantin Opens Boutique in Paris

150Boutique-mania continues for the luxury watch brands. Vacheron Constantin has opened its latest one in Paris, at 2 Rue de la Paix, the brand’s 35th boutique worldwide. To mark the occasion, the Geneva-based manufacture is offering a new edition of its 1972 Prestige watch. In addition to the other Vacheron Constantin collections available, the boutique will present exclusive pieces as well as a vintage collection called “Vacheron Constantin les Collectioneurs,” in which each timepiece is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Vacheron Constantin called upon several French master artisans to equip its new Parisian boutique. Mathieu Lustrerie, a specialist in the restoration of lights from historical monuments, created a chandelier made of “Saturn” rock crystal, and mosaic artist Pierre Mesguich bejewelled it by hand with 35,000 tiny marble cubes. The boutique’s wrought iron decorative elements were tailor-made by Les Métalliers Champenois, a company whose work should be familiar to many Americans: its previous projects include the restoration of the Statue of Liberty.
