Atelier Cabinotiers

Ever since its founding, Vacheron Constantin has been making special-order watches. Its master watchmakers do not keep track of the hours it takes to determine the exact aesthetic of a piece or select the functions and components needed to make the customer’s dreams come true. In those early days, to take advantage of the best midday light for as long as possible, the craftsmen would set up shop on the topmost storeys of buildings. These workshops, often cramped and sometimes directly beneath the rooftops, illuminated by many windows, earned a solid reputation for the quality work they turned out and became known as cabinets [“closets”], and their occupants as cabinotiers.

During this exclusive global launch of Vacheron Constantin’s newest high complications, a main highpoint of the spectacular exhibition was the showcasing of the Maître Cabinotier Retrograde Armillary Tourbillon, a truly magnificent creation.
