Vacheron Constantin - Les Cabinotiers 20 New Unique Watches For U.S. Tour.

Feb 09, 2019,09:25 AM

I had the great please to be invited to see the 20 piece collection from the Atelier Les Cabinotiers and the distinct  honor to meet  Leslie Kobrin, President of Americas for Vacheron Constantin.  A very passionate Lady with a vision for Vacheron to elevate it to a place where it can show the special talents that have to offer bespoke, one-of-a-kind watches called the Les Cabinotiers collection.  

These watches can take from 18 months to several years to complete and can meet a clients wildest dreams.  However, in this day and age where everything is instantaneous Vacheron has put together a collection to inspire its clientele with these 20 unique pieces that are available to purchase without years of waiting.  Hopefully this will give the collectors some inspiration for the direction they can take their dream watch.  Again we are not talking about a small modification to a watch in their catalog but a watch that you can dream they will produce a “pièce unique" - one-of-a-kind for you.  The prices range from a few hundred thousand to well over a million dollars for these watches made Vacheron Les Cabinotiers who are some of Geneva’s most experienced watchmakers.

Les Cabinotiers tour of United States tour began on February 6th in Beverly Hills, CA.  with next stops in Miami and finishing at their boutique in New York.  All visits of the collection are by appointment so please give them a call.  You will not regret a moment when you get a chance to the watches in person.

Unfortunately I do not know the exact names of all the pieces nor did I have a chance to take great pictures due to the low light, but here are a few to inspire you.  Please enjoy these bespoke, one-of-a-kind watches known as Les Cabinotiers collection.

Vacheron Constantin also unveils the Minute Repeater Tourbillon Twilight The 18-kara white gold case measures 44mm in diameter.

Witnessing a company that...

looks forward and raises the bar, it's always refreshing. Without this, a job remains a job. When a job becomes "creation", "artistry" it pushes buttons deep inside, IMO. Thanks for the heads-up, Bill

You are very correct.

In a crowded market popularity against competence you have to find a way to feature your talents. The fast and disposable world is a challenge to tradition.

Some very artistic watches!

I asked but did not have the pleasure. However i had an interesting news.

They told me that they make a digital recording of each watch thst is stored by the watch serial number. Whenever the watch goes in for service the find the recording by serial number and tune the watch to match so each customer always has the same sound.... 

That's a great idea! [nt]

Two mediums of art... Glad to see Vacheron Constantin in top form!

1. The art of watchmaking. 2. The art of miniature wood pieces pieced into a dial, enamel painting, etc. Truly looks extraordinary. Glad to see Vacheron Constantin at the top of the game!

Thanks for the glance at this very rare collection

for a nice report. It must have been a really fantastic day to interact with these watches. It is not an opportunity that arises every day. I have always respected the craft of such watches, but honestly never paid very much attention, since I thought it ... 

Wow wow wow ! My favorite is the ...
