Vacheron Constantin celebrates 250 years: Final stage of the "World Tour" exhibition in Zurich
Geneva/Zurich (ots) - To conclude its "World Tour" and simultaneously celebrate its 250th birthday, Vacheron Constantin is exhibiting a spectacular anniversary collection in Bank Leu's client service hall on Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse. The exhibition is open to the public on Friday and Saturday, December 16 and 17, 2005.
The Tour de l'Ile is its name, and its proud owner can claim to be in possession of the world's most expensive modern wristwatch. At this year's Antiquorum auction in Geneva, "The Quarter Millennium of Vacheron Constantin 1755 - 2005", it was sold for the world record price of 1.87 million Swiss francs. It is now being exhibited to the public for a short period along with other table clocks and wristwatches. To mark the conclusion of its "World Tour" and celebrate the 250th anniversary of its foundation, Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin is exhibiting a spectacular anniversary collection in Bank Leu's client service hall on Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse. The unique ambience provided by the premises of Switzerland's oldest bank (also 250 years old) gives the exhibition an even greater aesthetic appeal.
The exhibition is being held in Bank Leu's client service hall at Bahnhofstrasse 32, Zurich (access via main entrance) and is open to the public on Friday and Saturday, December 16 and 17, 2005.
