The watchmaker returns for a brand new collaboration following its restoration of the Louvre's 18th-century clock…

Following numerous partnerships where they have demonstrated a deep commitment to art and culture, Swiss luxury watchmakers Vacheron Constantin is tapping into the very heart of French culture with its latest collaboration with the Louvre Museum.

The new partnership will see the duo work on a number of projects inspired by the collections of the famed French institution and although exact details have not been announced, the brand hinted at "co-creation projects in the fields of craftsmanship, watchmaking, art and culture."

"With the Louvre, we are beginning a very promising new chapter," announced Louis Ferla, CEO of Vacheron Constantin in a statement. "We could not have dreamt of a better partner for a constructive dialogue on the themes of art and culture."

This is not the first time that the famed museum and swiss brand join forces; back in 2016, Vacheron Constantin helped the Louvre restore a one-of-a-kind horological masterpiece known as "La Création du Monde" which it displayed at its wonderful museum in Paris and later, at it's Abu Dhabi-based institution for the first three months of its opening back in 2017.

"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," said Jean-Luc Martinez, president-director of the historic museum on the collaboration. "The Louvre has always been a vibrant place, inspiring creative talents of every era."
