Vacheron Constantin Teams up with Italian Menswear Brand

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has collaborated with Italian menswear brand Vitale Barberis Canonico to create a new collection of timepieces.

Called Métiers d’Art Elégance Sartoriale, the collection comprises five watches, each with a face “clothed” in a classic design from the world of men’s fashion.

The collection was officially unveiled at an exhibition in Paris at the end of March, and will be presented during European Artistic Craft Days, to be held in different European capitals over the coming months.

The engravers and enamelers of Vacheron Constantin got their inspiration from five well known fine fabrics of Vitale Barberis Canonico collection: Herringbone, Prince of Wales, Tartan, Pinstripe and Windowpane.

The collection will be on sale at the Vacheron Constantin boutiques from September 2016.

Founded by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755, Vacheron Constantin has grown to become one of the world’s most famous luxury watch makers.
