- In 2019, Vacheron Constantin introduced digital certification of authenticity using Blockchain technology.
- Initially reserved for its vintage watches from Les Collectionneurs collection, all Vacheron Constantin timepieces will be delivered by the end of 2021 with a blockchain-based digital passport, secured by the Arianee technology.
- The Hour Club, the new site exclusively reserved for Vacheron Constantin customers, will also serve as a digital authentication platform for the Maison’s watches.
Geneva, November 5th, 2020 - In 2019, Vacheron Constantin was among the first watchmakers to integrate blockchain technology as part of an innovative service to clients and an increasingly environmentally friendly approach to certification involving less paper.
The watches in Les Collectionneurs collection are thus accompanied by a digital certificate of authenticity that is perfectly forgery-proof. The success of the first test phase has prompted the Maison to extend this certification to all its timepieces.
Vacheron Constantin customers will also be able to register and authenticate their timepieces throughout their lifetime via their very own dedicated platform: The Hour Club.
“Digital identities will transform the way one owns valuable assets, enabling owners to track the product lifecycle, share or prove ownership, and benefit from tailored services attached to each timepiece. On top of proof of ownership, our clients will benefit from Blockchain’s ability to store all information about a timepiece, including technical information, user guides, certifications, and product history. ”
— Louis Ferla, CEO Vacheron Constantin
“We are delighted to enable Vacheron Constantin with the capacity to issue and distribute digital identities based on the blockchain technology. We hope to contribute to make the ownership of a Vacheron Constantin timepiece even more exceptional, traceable and transparent, while opening the possibility for new services and seamless traceability”
— Pierre-Nicolas Hurstel, CEO Ariane
