Vacheron Constantin supports the Rheumasearch Foundation.
Rheumatory disorders affect millions of people worldwide and in varying degrees. The effects on the hands, in particular, whether of degenerative origin (such as osteoarthritis) or in association with rheumatoid arthritis, can be particularly disabling for the watchmakers and artisans of watch manufacturers such as Vacheron Constantin.
Rheumasearch is a foundation created in 2007, with a name stemming from a contraction of the words Rheumatology and Research. The goal of this foundation is to support the clinical and fundamental research conducted in the rheumatology department of University Hospitals Geneva, as well as the Rheumatology laboratory of the Faculty of Medicine in Geneva.
