The world's oldest watch brand, Vacheron Constantin has continuously been crafting precious timepieces for 257 years, making a name for itself in creating shaped watches.
In 1912, the Swiss Manufacture was one of the first brands to adopt tonneau, or barrel-shaped cases. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of watches with this emblematic form, Vacheron Constantin and its Thai distributor Pendulum showcased a collection of heritage and commemorative timepieces in an exhibition, at Siam Paragon last week.
The 12 historic watches included one of the earliest tonneau-shaped 18K yellow gold wristwatch from 1912, a Chronometre Royal from 1968, a dual time from 1982 featuring two independent movements and a 1995 platinum piece with a power reserve display and calendar date indicator.
