Vacheron Constantin has unveiled a new collaboration with the world-renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. 

Called ‘Masterpiece on the Wrist’ programme offers Vacheron Constantin’s clients the possibility of creating a single-piece edition Les Cabinotiers watch, the dial of which will feature an enamel reproduction of an artwork chosen by the client. 

The program now offers works from The MET’s collection, such as masterpieces by Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, Vincent van Gogh, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. 

The partnership between Vacheron Constantin and The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The MET), launched in 2023, is rooted in a shared commitment to safeguarding and passing on knowledge and expertise. Both institutions individually have extensive histories of conservatorship in artistic know-how and craft, and together seek to share in this commitment to the arts.

Discussing the synergy between the watch maison and The MET, Louis Ferla, CEO of Vacheron Constantin said, “The quest for excellence is a constant challenge in which we never stop learning.” This multi-year partnership will focus on the values shared between the two institutions and will support combined ideas and efforts to engage the artistic and creative community. Continued learning, and support of the transmission of knowledge from master to apprentice, have been at the core of Vacheron Constantin since 1755.”

According to Vacheron Constantin, the duo will continue developing a series of projects designed to showcase their respective rich heritages and their ability to keep cultural legacies alive for future generations.
