The new Vacheron Constantin boutique officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony early this month. For its grand opening, the Lucerne Group's managing directors Ivan Yao and Emerson Yao were accompanied by Vacheron Constantin South East Asia and Australia managing director Gael Porte, chargée d'affaires of the Swiss Embassy in the Philippines Céline Fürst, and Ayala Malls president Christopher Maglanoc.

"We are delighted to welcome enthusiasts and connoisseurs to Vacheron Constantin's world of haute horlogerie and tradition in Manila, Philippines. With this new location, we seek to offer our clients the best space for exclusive services and share our Maison’s commitment to haute horlogerie, where they can discover the know-how and tradition that sets us apart as one of not many," Porte said.

Located in Greenbelt 5, the shop is a special one as it is the first standalone boutique in the Philippines. Guests were able to get up close and personal with a curated collection of Vacheron Constantin's extraordinary watches including the Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin, Traditionnelle complete calendar openface, as well as the new Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Ultra-thin and Égérie collection.
