Third and last set of a series of exceptional timepieces, La Symbolique des Laques represents a tribute to the natural beauty of the seasons, crafted by the oldest Japanese lacquer company, Zôhiko (1661).
Through these events, the Manufacture has contributed to supporting artistic crafts on an institutional level within a high-quality cultural environment. On this occasion, Vacheron Constantin not only revealed the last set of the Métiers d’Art – La Symbolique des Laques collection, but also presented its new initiative on behalf of artistic crafts : the Cercle 250. Eager to preserve and share this hand-crafted heritage, this organisation invites international companies that like Vacheron Constantin have been active for over 250 years, to join forces in preserving, perpetuating and promoting the Artistic Crafts.
In parallel, this philosophy of passing on knowledge and expertise naturally leads Vacheron Constantin to invest in building a new 1,000 sq.m. training centre in Canton Geneva: the Campus Genevois de Haute Horlogerie, in association with three other companies in the Richemont group (Roger Dubuis, Van Cleef & Arpels and Manufacture Stern Genève).
