Vacheron Constantin Celebrates the World Wide Launch of the Overseas Timepiece Collection

Vacheron Constantin, the world’s oldest Haute Horlogerie manufacturer with over 260 years of uninterrupted history, celebrates the world wide launch of its new Overseas timepiece collection with an incredible event on The High Line in New York City.

In homage to the vibrant Overseas collection, Vacheron Constantin hosted a stunning evening for over 200 clients, VIPs and press from around the world on Wednesday, May 25, 2016. The Overseas collection was unveiled on the elevated and historic New York City landmark, The High Line, above spectacular views of Manhattan. The location provided a sky-high exploration of Vacheron Constantin’s Overseas Tour photo partnership with legendary photographer Steve McCurry. It provided guests with an exhibition of the first six locations from the artist’s journey, including images from his work in New York, Mexico, China, India, Japan, and the Vacheron Constantin Manufacture in Geneva.

Prestigious guests were thrilled to be among the privileged few to preview the new Overseas World Time watches and experience the new Overseas interchangeable watch strap system. A series of innovative virtual reality stations and watch booths crafted to mimic traveling luggage cases provided the ultimate interactive opportunities.

A special musical performance by Grammy award-winning band, A Great Big World, capped off the evening against breathtaking views of New York’s Hudson River. It was truly an unforgettable event to herald Vacheron Constantin’s new Overseas timepiece collection.

To mark the world wide launch of its new Overseas timepiece collection, a dedicated website has been unveiled. It provides a chance to explore the collection's distinctive travel-themed universe. Through photo galleries, 360° videos including a "making of" video, you will discover the exceptional Overseas Tour locations, captured by the legendary photographer Steve McCurry. The entire set of models and their distinctive technical features are also presented through specific videos and sections.
