A glamorous collector event in San Francisco
Held at the historic penthouse of the San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel, Vacheron Constantin hosted the first West Coast Hour Lounge collevtor event, an evening to be remembered.
The event was hosted at a palace constructed in 1926 with a two-story circular library complete with a secret passageway, the door to which is concealed behind the bookshelves. Library visitors sit beneath a sapphire-blue rotunda on which a celestial map depicting the signs of the zodiac is rendered in gold leaf. The distinctive billiard room conjurers up images of Humphrey Bogart’s Casablanca, and the terrace offers sweeping city views.
The evening began with cocktails as guests toured the penthouse, took in the view, caught up with old friends, and admired the timepieces on display. After a warm welcome from Hugues de Pins, there were open questions from guests, and a live discussion of the type often seen on the Hour Lounge forum followed. Topics included watch design, technical developments, and collector preferences. Christian Selmoni and Vincent Kauffmann offered insights into the process of creating new models.
No better place than a palace than to hold an amazing evening for watch connoisseurs who were treated as royalty by Vacheron Cosntantin all throughout an unforgettable evening in San Francisco.
