Vacheron Constantin Partnership with the Musée du Louvre
Future projects will include collaborations inspired by the collections of the Louvre.
Throughout its history, Vacheron Constantin has demonstrated a deep commitment to art and culture, embodied in numerous partnerships. Its relationship with the Louvre is a natural extension of this celebration of beauty and this constant concern for the conservation, preservation and transmission of heritage. On the strength of their shared skills that will prove naturally conducive to discussions on artisanal practices and techniques, the two institutions have sealed a partnership that will notably take the form of horological projects inspired by the Louvre's masterpieces. Vacheron Constantin and the Louvre will also collaborate on creative projects aimed at promoting art, creation and beauty through a multicultural approach.
Vacheron Constantin and le Musée du Louvre already collaborated in 2016, when the clock named La Création du Monde (a masterpiece of 18th century precision horology presented to King Louis XV in 1754 and deposited by the Musée national des châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon in the Louvre), was restored thanks to the patronage of Vacheron Constantin.

"I enthusiastically welcome this collaboration between our two institutions, both centuries-old yet firmly rooted in the 21st century, as evidenced by the favour they enjoy among an audience of connoisseurs", said Louis Ferla, CEO Vacheron Constantin. "Our Maison has long since stood out in terms of both artistic commitment and cultural patronage. With the Louvre, we are beginning a very promising new chapter. We could not have dreamt of a better partner for a constructive dialogue on the themes of art and culture.”
Jean-Luc Martinez, President-Director of the Musée du Louvre, commented: "The Louvre has always been a vibrant place, inspiring creative talents of every era. I am delighted that Vacheron Constantin, a Maison committed to the patient and demanding workmanship involved in Haute Horlogerie, now finds in the Louvre a repertoire and techniques that reinforce and magnify its concern for beauty.”
