When Vacheron Constantin became a sponsor of the Paris National Opera in 2007, Vacheron Constantin has been looking for values that have been pursuing more than 250 years of history: hand-made fine watchmaking Métiers d’Art, a historical heritage of handicrafts and artistic traditions. The continuation of this partnership merges art and culture. This is the best professional and technical personnel cultivated by the oldest watch manufacturers, plus the precipitation and integration of history, culture and art since its establishment in 1775. Coupled with continuous creation, the world-renowned Vacheron Constantin was finally achieved.
Vacheron Constantin has now created a special collection with 15 unique types of watches in honor of the greatest composer, as well as artist Marc who created immortal frescoes on the ceiling of the Garnier Opera House. Chagall.
The theme of the first watch of the Métiers d’ Art—Chagall & L’ Opéra de Paris series is “Tribute to famous composers”. This unique creation was launched at a celebration party on November 20, 2010 in L’Opéra de Paris, celebrating Paris Opera & Ballet’s partner Association pour le Rayonnement de l’Opéra National de Paris (AROP) 30 anniversary.
The characteristic of this watch is the perfect faithful reproduction of the ceiling painted by Chagall of the Garnier Opera House, using the history-tested Geneva Grand Feu enamel miniature painting technology. The other 14 watches will be displayed in the eyes of the world in the next two years, each of which will become a masterpiece in Chagall’s masterpiece.
