Vacheron Constantin has just opened its boutique located in the ION Orchard mall in Singapore. At over 2000 square feet, complete with a resident watchmaker, the new store will be the brand’s flagship store on the Orchard Road shopping belt.
Singapore, the city state that is the watch capital of South-East Asia now has a second Vacheron Constantin boutique. Located on the second level of ION Orchard, the new store will offer the complete range of Vacheron Constantin timepieces – both new and old – as well as services, with a watchmaker in-store. Several new timepieces from the 2014 collection will also make their premiere at the store, like the Traditionnelle Day-Date and Power Reserve Collection Excellence Platine. Outfitted in the gold and black decor that is the Great Gatsby-esque new look for Vacheron Constantin stores, the boutique will also offer vintage timepieces. Known as Collectionneurs, these timepieces have been restored and certified by Vacheron Constantin.
