Vacheron Constantin created a unique space for collectors to connect, share their passion and shape their watchmaking journey. We visited the VC Villa 1755, and here is our pictorial report of the event.
A totally non-commercial space, the event is not oriented towards sales, but focused on providing a space for collectors and the brand to share their passion. The villa is located in one of the many beautiful houses in the luxury quarter of Singapore – within the enclave of Sentosa Cove.

Media preview report
We visited during the Media preview, and had a tour of the villa and showed the watches which were on display. We also had lunch and a leather workshop.
The villa was re-modeled to have a Vacheron Constantin’s look and feel. Here we see a view of the living area and at the far end of the photograph, the bar.
The bar is manned by a capable bartender who can serve cocktails, mocktails and champagne.
They even have their own newspaper!
A dining table is set for 10 pax for the media lunch.
Display cabinet transformed to showcase VC watches and objet d’art to complement the decor.
A selection of the VC 2022 novelties are available for viewing. These include the beautiful Égérie collection. The pieces on display have a strong focus on the new feminine timepieces to showcase VC’s anatomy of beauty. Vacheron remains one of the few maisons who create complicated timepieces for ladies. With feminine watches with complications like perpetual calendars and moon phase watches.
For the Medial event, we were treated to a leather workshop, run by Hughes Low of Hughes Handcrafted.
The leather workstation. This one is the instructor – Hughes’s desk.
Selection of linen threads that can be used for stitching.
And a selection of goat leather in various colours which is then stitched and used as luggage tags.
