Programme of the week
Frédérique Constant Museum, Vacheron Constantin manufacture and a meeting with the heads of Ulysse Nardin.

Frédérique Constant Museum
The morning will be dedicated to visiting the new Frédérique Constant museum, which was inaugurated this summer. Experience the manufacture in a recreational and interactive space, which also showcase the history and universe of each brand (Alpina and Atelier de Monaco belong to the same group). Its vast exhibition space showcases historic vintage watches, the process of creating a manufacture movement and details on the brands’ most emblematic watches. Since the launch of its first in-house movement in 2004, Frédérique Constant has created 29 manufacture movements. This VIP guided visit will end with an intimate lunch at the heart of the manufacture.
Vacheron Constantin Manufacture
The afternoon will be devoted to the oldest manufacture in the world (running uninterrupted since 1755), Vacheron Constantin—a brand that has produced some of the most complicated watches in the world. Members will find themselves immersed in Vacheron Constantin’s savoir-faire in this guided visit of the manufacture, exclusive to the Fine Watch Club, and will include a presentation of rare watches by a master watchmaker.
The day will end with a meeting with the head of Ulysse Nardin, the brand known for its Freak collection and its marine chronometers. Its manufacture, entirely integrated for movement creation, is one of the most innovative manufactures in the industry. The brand has entered a new and dynamic era since the appointment of its CEO, Patrick Pruniaux. Discover the brand’s latest creations as well as a new prototype, exclusively for the Fine Watch Club.
In order to best welcome members in an exclusive setting, only 10 spots are available for this day, and only one guest per member is permitted.
