It was at the inauguration ceremony of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie on 3 April that Juan-Carlos Torres - CEO of Vacheron Constantin - presented the timepiece Jubilé 1755 to the city of Geneva's Watch, Clock and Enamel Museum, in the presence of its curator, Ms Estelle Fallet, and the Director of the city of Geneva's Museum of Art and History, Mr Cäsar Menz.
The Jubilé 1755 is trebly symbolic: first, it was created for Vacheron Constantin's 250th anniversary and part of its name refers to the year of the company's foundation. Second, it symbolises a quarter of a millennium of uninterrupted history and brings together all the brand's aesthetic criteria. Third, it bears the Poinçon de Genève, a hallmark to which we attach great value and significance.
This gift, proof of our attachment to the city of Geneva's Watch, Clock and Enamel Museum, was announced during the Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie 2005 in Geneva, at which Vacheron Constantin was awarded the Aiguille d'Or for the Tour de l'Ile, the most complicated wristwatch ever made, produced in small series.
