Vacheron Constantin & the Musée du Louvre: a new stage in the cultural and artistic partnership between the two institutions.
Since its founding in 1755, Vacheron Constantin has devoted great importance to arts and culture. The partnership with the Louvre Museum that began in 2019 betokens a celebration of beauty driven by the Manufacture’s constant concern for safeguarding and passing on of heritage.
A bespoke Les Cabinotiers watch was auctioned off at the "Bid for the Louvre" sale organised to benefit the museum's solidarity projects in December 2020, initiating a new offer entitled "A masterpiece on the wrist".
After two years featuring a wealth of discoveries including the winning bidder’s private visit to the museum and the Manufacture in order to discuss the project with the Louvre's experts and the Maison's Master Artisans, the adventure gave birth to a single-piece edition watch: Les Cabinotiers – Homage to Pierre Paul Rubens, La lutte pour l'étendard de la Bataille d'Anghiari. Its miniature enamel dial faithfully reproduces the eponymous drawing by Peter Paul Rubens.
