Vacheron Constantin brings new Harmony collection to Middle East

Celebrating the 260th anniversary of its founding in 1755, Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin launches its new Harmony collection.

Last week, this collection made its debut in Oman, over an exclusive dinner held at the Chedi Hotel in Oman. The brand’s CEO, Juan-Carlos Torres and managing director of Mistal boutique, Dharmesh Khimji, were among the VIP guests at the dinner.

Mistal, part of the Ajit Khimji Group, is the exclusive distributor for Vacheron Constantin’s watches in the Sultanate of Oman.

Timepieces from the Harmony collection feature a cushion shape and design, which has been inspired by Vacheron Constantin’s first wristwatch chronographs, introduced in 1928. It also matches the existing range of round or tonneau-shaped cases, found on other Vacheron Constantin watches.

The Harmony Dual Time limited edition, the Harmony Dual Time Small Model, the Métiers d’Art La Symbolique des Laques, the Patrimony Traditionnelle Calibre and the Métiers d’art, were among the timepieces showcased at the dinner.

The Mistal boutique has been conceptualised and brought into exuberant life by Paris-based architect and designer Kristian Gavoille. Its interior design draws inspiration from the picturesque Wadi Mistal in Oman.

The dinner in Oman is one of Vacheron Constantin’s latest events in the GCC region. Earlier this month, the brand also held an elite collector’s preview in the presidential suite of Emirates Towers in Dubai.

The exclusive preview welcomed only 15 of the niche collectors from the region and throughout the event, the brand showcased its new Harmony Collection timepieces, the Metiers d’Art Collection and its High Jewellery Collection.

Among the highlighted timepieces showcased at the Dubai event were the Harmony Chronograph, the Métiers d’Art Fabuleux Ornements – Ottoman architecture and the Métiers d’Art Fabuleux Ornements – Chinese embroidery, among others.
