Vacheron Constantin opens its fifth U.S. location today in the Design District. The watch hub joins other similar stores on a stretch of luxury timepiece shops we like to call, "Watch Row," which sits smack-dab in the middle of the Design District's newly premiered Palm Court.
What's cool about this store, WWD reports, is that Vacheron Constantin in Miami will feature the art of local artists on one of its walls, rotating it to promote as much Miami culture as possible. It should be starting up around Art Basel, so expect a big snazzy affair for this. Also cool? There's a full-time in-house watchmaker on staff, which is a first for Vacheron Constantin.*
*Correction: While the art wall is a first for Vacheron Constantin, the in-store watchmaker is not, as every Vacheron store comes equipped with one on staff.
