This contract is being recognized today as the date of creation of Vacheron Constantin, making it the eldest watch manufacturer in continuous operation.Suite 1755 embodies the tradition of creating bespoke and long-lasting relationships which started with Francois Constantin who used to travel the world to bond with the Maison’s clients.

Upon entering, connoisseurs are greeted by a space filled with natural light and a stunning display of Art pieces, including a unique custom-made Vacheron Constantin Moucharabieh inspired by geometrical designs and curated furniture pieces by acclaimed Emirati designer Aljoud Lootah.
