Vacheron Constantin watches adorn weddings with elegance and luxury

Watches & jewellery play a big role in Arab weddings. They represent new beginnings, long commitments. When couples think of a wedding gift that reflects stability and continuity, Vacheron Constantin, the world’s oldest watch manufacturer with more than 250 years behind it, is well worth a visit. The couples may then adorn their “dream day” with beauty and elegance.
Created especially for such occasions is the 1972 Cambrée for women and the Malte Chronograph for men, available at the Vacheron Constantin boutiques and points of sale across the Arab world.
Each of these highly valued timepieces is created to complement the details of every bride and groom’s look and is a symbol of their elegance. Each piece by Vacheron Constantin radiates a truly exquisite beauty and charm while maintaining the highest standard of quality that the brand is known for. 1972 Cambrée, what every woman is proud to wear for her wedding, is a renewed manifestation of the meticulous care that Vacheron Constantin devotes to its feminine watch lines.
Uniting the expertise of the designers, watchmakers, goldsmiths and jewellers in the Manufacture, the new version of the 1972 takes femininity to greater heights. With its case sumptuously adorned with 232 diamonds (almost 1.70 carats) and still endowed with that perfect wrist-hugging curve, the 1972 now comes with a gold bracelet featuring a thin profile, asymmetrical links and an invisible clasp that helps it slide lithely onto the wrist. Available in 18K white or pink gold, infinitely sensual and resolutely modern, the 1972 Cambrée plays freely with unexpected contrasts between classicism and an openly daring attitude. With its new gold bracelet composed of asymmetrical links that gracefully echo the case, the new 1972 is clearly intended for elegant women in search of a luxurious and unmistakably contemporary watch. Highlighting an originality tinged with a fascinating audacity, the new 1972 by Vacheron Constantin once again proves that time has no hold on its incomparable creativity and its exceptional know-how, a subtle blend of the noblest watch-making traditions and a decidedly innovative spirit.
Vacheron Constantin offers the groom, the Malte Chronograph, in a new 18K white gold and 18K 5N pink gold versions. The new Malte Chronograph is a worthy descendent of the Vacheron Constantin tradition of distinguished chronographs that look elegant in any situation. The case has a strong and instantly-recognizable design and its gold dial clearly displays all the useful functions offered by the mechanical, self-winding movement, which beats at a rate of 21,600 vibrations/hour. The Malte Chronograph watch features three counters: small seconds at 6 o’clock in addition to 30-minute and 12-hour counters, as well as a large date window at 12 o’clock. The new Malte Chronograph comes with a choice of black/brown hand-stitched, saddle finish, square-scaled alligator leather.
The couples of this year may confidently embark on their new journey into the future, knowing that the hands of Vacheron Constantin watches will guard the passing of their marriage years.
