The Swiss watch brand take us through their 2020 novelties

Earlier in the year, as the effects of the coronavirus were really beginning to kick in, the watch world had a problem. At that time of year, early March, they had new watches to launch and nowhere to do it. Basel World and Watches and Wonders, the two big watch tradeshows were, after all, cancelled.

Instead, watch brands took to Zoom, which is how and why we sat down with Vacheron Constantin’s Chief Marketing officer, Laurent Perves, to discuss three of the brand’s most exciting novelties for 2020.

Vacheron Constantin have a reputation for making understated but beautiful watches that attract attention from those who know what they are looking for, thanks to their subtlety. In the Middle East, their market specific limited editions are always considered and well executed.

This time around, Vacheron had, among a list of novelties for 2020, three that were of particular importance: the Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Skeleton, the Traditionnelle Tourbillon Chronograph and the Les Cabinotiers Grand Complication Split-Second Chronograph “Tempo”. That last one is the most complicated watch ever made by the brand.

Perves takes us through all three novelties and introduces us to them as he would if were sat in front of him in Geneva.
