With these photos you'll have a better idea of the atmosphere at the exhibition (which is running until August 14 at the Singapore National Museum).

This exhibition regroups 180 exceptional pieces some of which rarely  leave Geneva or like the Farouk have been lent to VC by its owner. The goal is to bring the visitors into the world of Vacheron Constantin, starting from 1755 and the Geneva of the cabinotiers and take them through a journey into time into the world and philosophy of VC

First of all, I must say I'm so impressed by the British Empire's great buildings.

What buildings in today's compared money, will stand the time in 150 years, that are built today?

None, we all know.

It's like the Pyramides and the Roman and Greece cultures, they lasted for centuries,

and will stand in all time.

This brings our thoughts to a certain watch brand.

The oldest.

The outstanding, both tecnichal and in design.

Vacheron&Constantin really is part of the common history,

not only the watch history.

It is, and has, and will always be THE BRAND.

In this beauriful article, so elegant illustrated,

it speaks for itself, and I'm especially glad that the watchmakers,

are exposed, because strange to say, they are seen far to seldom.

The masters and the drive of Vacheron&Constantin heart

Thanks to all of you smiley

and thanks to Alex for another memorable article!

Cheers

and the celebration. It was fun to see familiar faces and also to hear our own CEO, Charly Torres speak his eloquent Spanish!

Thanks Alex,

Tim

For several years I was very engaged in bull fighting!

I was member of 'Pena Taurina los Suecos'!

We used to go down to Espania for a week of bullfighting,

yes, as spectators.... cool

Fantastic video, that I actually understood a bit of.

Oh, I love THAT pocket watch, as much as Torres does.

It's the real peak.

Nothing to be changed or added.

Just PERFECT.

That's THE masterpiece in watch making history for me.

And it illustrates the 1994 Antiquorum Catalogue, book,

with honour!

Thanks for another fantastic video, Alex smiley

And thanks to Juan Carlos, relaxed and with that a bit laid back authority,

he now really is Mr Vacheron&Constantin laugh

Cheers

Doc

The exhibition, so thoughtfully captured on camera by SJX and VC, is a credit to all concerned. The compilation of photographs gives one a sense of presence. Indeed, the story unfolds, figuratively speaking, as one strolls around enjoying an endless feast of skills, knowledge, experience and expertise.

The museum, both interior and exterior, provides a monumental backcloth and persona to both endorse and complement the Vacheron Constantin brand. One couldn't have thought of a better partnership!

I also enjoyed the 'Spanish' Video which highlights social skills at it's best.

I am so pleased to have been able to share the experience.
