Watch brand opens its first New York boutique

First published: 10-08-2011

A leading Swiss watchmaker is set to debut its first New York boutique and to celebrate, has launched three new models.

Vacheron Constantin has spread its wings to bring its designs across the Atlantic where it will open its 28th boutique.

It was 1831 when Jean-Barthelemy Vacheron first had the desire to grace the States with his timepiece designs, however, it was not until a year later that he established his first agent in NY.

And the company has strong ties with the US.

It took part in the New York World's Fair in 1939.

By the late 60s and early 70s, presidents Harry Truman and Dwight D Eisenhower each owned a Vacheron Constantin.

And now the brand has celebrated its relationship with America by naming its three latest pieces in homage to the country.

They are; the overseas chronograph perpetual calendar, the historiques American and the patrimony traditionnelle calibre 2755.

That's certainly a tribute to the stars and stripes.
