The 100th anniversary of the Boutique and Maison Vacheron Constantin, celebrated this year, is synonymous with the development of ambitious projects for which Dominique Bernaz will assume responsibility.
In order to accomplish his mission, Dominique will be able to drawn on a wealth of experience gained in the field of Haute Horlogerie and based on an approach to clients and collectors built up throughout his career to date.
