Vacheron Constantin Celebrates
“The Art of Openworking”
with Sincere Fine Watches
Openwork Novelties Malaysia Debut
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Vacheron Constantin co-hosted an exclusive dinner with Sincere Fine Watches to discover the latest openworked novelties for the first time in Malaysia. The exclusive showcase and dinner event took place at Tanzini restaurant, in the heart of Kuala Lumpur on 14 August 2014. In the presence of Mr Julien Tornare, Managing Director of Vacheron Constantin Asia Pacific, Ms Ellen Sorensen, Managing Director of Vacheron Constantin South East Asia and Mr Teh Soon Kheng, General Manager of Sincere Watch, the private dinner hosted Sincere VIP guests and Vacheron Constantin’s Hour Club members.
Vacheron Constantin’s history in the field of openworked timepieces started since 1755, when the first watch produced by the brand’s founder, Jean-Marc Vacheron, featured an openworked and engraved balance-cock. This year, the brand has dedicated most of its new watches to the art of opening through stunning hand-engraved work resembling the technic of sculpture and three-dimensional architecture.
Distinguished guests were first greeted with a live watchmaking demonstration, and enjoyed champagne and hors d’oeuvres while viewing the exceptional timepieces and in-house calibres on display. Vacheron Constantin this year chose to explore new horizons in the demanding art of openworking. The highlights showcased included the Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon Openworked and Malte Tourbillon Openworked which display the brand’s exceptional mastery in mechanical horology, as well as Metiers d’Art Mecaniques Ajourees and Metiers d’Art Fabuleux Ornements combining artistic crafts such as Grand Feu champlevé enamelling, chamfering and gem-setting.
Guests were treated to a well-crafted 4-course dinner and were entertained throughout the evening with a magnificent performance by a harpist who amazed the guests with her exuberant soloist performance.
