NEW: Vacheron Constantin ONLY WATCH 2009

On the occasion of ONLY WATCH 2009,
organised on behalf of the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy,
Vacheron Constantin makes its first-ever introduction of a watch made from tantalum.

This one-of-kind Quai de l’Ile model,
testifying to the latest technological breakthroughs from the Geneva-based manufacturer,
will be presented at the charity auction to be held in Monaco on September 24th 2009.

In a fascinating new sequel to the official launch of the new Quai de l’Ile collection in Geneva at the April 2008 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Vacheron Constantin now presents the first-ever one-of-a-kind Quai de l’Ile model. Dedicated to the ONLY WATCH 2009 charity auction that will take place in Monaco on September 24th, this unique watch features a tantalum case also representing a major first in the history of the Geneva-based manufacturer.
