    As part of the Watches & Wonders event, which brings together in Hong Kong thirteen of the top watch brands, Vacheron Constantin selects the ateliergh, together with local agency Marc & Chantal Design, to stage an exceptional collection of ringtone watches.

    Inspired by the world of polyphonic orchestras, this device offers a symphony of time orchestrated by the finest repeater watches in the world. The soloist of this orchestra being the Patrimony Contemporaine and its caliber 1731 ultra-fine, last creation of Vacheron Constantin.

    As usual, the ateliergh wished for a living scenography. More than a “staging”, it is a “living” of objects clearly defined in space, combined with a sensory narration that invades the place and unfolds over time.

    From this narrative dimension comes a link between space and time, between inert and alive. A sound and visual poetry that seeks to make tangible the intangible. Sound, an impalpable material, becomes organic and graphic here thanks to the animation of a water plane above which watches float.

    The synchronized water waves on the ringtone of each watch are then projected onto the walls as if they were ricochets on a sound score.
