VC Métiers d´Art, Les Masques colllection in Barcelona


Good day, I´m new to this forum, I have a growing interest in Vacheron Constantin Wristwatches.

I  just want to share with you some pictures I took lsome days ago.

Last week I received an invitation from the museum Barbier - Mueller in Barcelona, where there is an exhibition called "Pre-Colombian Caribe. Fra Ramón Pané and the taino indian universe"

Vacheron Constantin is sponsoring this exhibition. As you know Mr Barbier lend twelve masks from his collection which have been reproduced by Vacheron in a superb collection of wristwatches known as "Les Masques"

Up to now we just have seen four of this beautiful pieces of art. My pictures really don´t do justice to these work of art.

Masks, VC has done something which probably no other brand could do with this collection: traditional arts and crafts with cutting edge technlogy and design . The Chinese mask is for me one of the most beautiful watches ever, it has what few watches have: soul and and extremely emotionally evocative (at least to me)

If you're interested in the Masks, this article may interest you :The Face that Reflect's the Soul's Movement

PS: Jean-Louis Queimada is a great guy

looked like a fine event! Thanks for sharing NT

Great photos of these magnificent timepieces and what appears to be a terrific exhibit in Barcelona.

IMHO, VC's Les Masques collection is the epitome of "watches as art".

Well done and thanks again for sharing.
