Sometimes the watch box is almost as beautiful as the watch it holds

With the opening of its London boutique mid 2013 Vacheron Constantin created a unique Patrimony Traditionnelle Calibre 2755 in rose gold and a very interesting guilloché dial inspired by the Union Jack

Sometimes the watch box is almost as beautiful as the watch it holds

Such an exceptional watch needed a not less exceptional house and Method Studio were asked to create what is probably one of the most exeptional watch boxes I have ever seen (calling it a watch box is not doing this justice...its more than just a box, it is a treasure casket and a work of art in its own right)

Wonderful combination of wood and leather, Alex

A beautiful piece indeed. It looks as if the wood is "quarter-cut" which gives the fewewst boards from a log, but the most beautiful grain. The combination of the wood and leather is outstanding. There is a very lucky person out there with and exceptional unique watch and the box to match! Joseph JB
Stunning...

As a collector of VC paraphenalia, I almost fainted. It is beautiful!

Unfortunately I could never afford the watch, and I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to afford just the box.  frowncheeky
Beautiful

In this watch box. Both the watch and the presentation is fit for royalties! Very impressive indeed Thanks for sharing this Alex. Always appreciate the fine details VC never fails to forget. Cheers Robin

I'm hoping this might mean that all the boxes that come with VC watches will be "upgraded" to a more elaborate affair
This box is indeed exquisite

I had the opportunity to see it live at the VC London Boutique opening night and, as good as the photos are, the box looks even better in the flesh. I also had the chance to sit next to Callum and Marisa from Method Studio, and had the pleasure of hearing the whole story about the creation of this masterpiece - a lot of work went into it...
