2007 – Vacheron Constantin inaugurates an exclusive new boutique in China
On January 18th 2007, Vacheron Constantin opened its 16th exclusive boutique (its 8th in China including Hong Kong) in Hangzhou, while taking the opportunity to present its Platinum Excellence Collection.
The team of Vacheron Constantin Asia Pacific, represented in particular by its Managing Director Jean-Michel Paray, as well as Charlie Lai, Managing Director of Hong Kong and China of Vacheron Constantin, were accompanied for this special occasion by Jane Fong, Managing Director of Shenzhen Harmony World Watch Centre and Xu Dong Cheng, President of Shenzhen Harmony World Watch Centre, Vacheron Constantin’s ambassadors and partners in Hangzhou.
The numerous guests, including a hundred or so journalists as well as many VIPS and clients, were able to admire this new showroom. The latter is inspired by the lines of the Vacheron Constantin boutique in Geneva and features a simple yet elegant interior design highlighted by precious materials such as wood, marble and leather, all reflecting the serene intimacy and warm atmosphere characteristic of the Vacheron Constantin spirit.
After the boutique inauguration, guests gathered in a prestigious location to celebrate the purest, rarest, most precious and most timeless of all metals, by presenting its collection of platinum watches, as well as many platinum antique watches dating back as far as 1820 and belonging to the Vacheron Constantin heritage collection.
To enliven the event and create a special surprise, a reconstituted platinum mine provided guests with a vivid visual experience of all the many stages in the transformation of the metal, from the extraction process right through to the creation of platinum watches.
