Vacheron Constantin watches Patrimony Traditionnelle Harmony Malte Quai de l'Ile Overseas 1972 Historiques Heures Créatives Métier d'Art Patrimony "Circular perfection, a quest for essentials: the Patrimony collection is the epitome of stylistic pureness. Reflecting a deliberately minimalist approach striking a beautiful balance between taut lines and curves, it asserts its personality through slender cases radiating an elegance inspired by 1950s Vacheron Constantin models."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Traditionnelle "The Traditionnelle collection is the supreme expression of the most demanding Geneva Haute Horlogerie traditions inherited from the 18th century. Imbued with history and a sense of rigorous discipline, Traditionnelle timepieces showcase technical refinement conveyed through eminently horological characteristics. From the simplest to the most complicated, these models pay tribute to craftsmanship and know-how passed on from generation to generation."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Harmony "Like a watchmaking sculpture, the art of shapes is deliberately dedicated to time measurement. The Harmony collection, with its reinvented cushion shape housing Manufacture-made movements, vividly demonstrates the aesthetic and technical expertise cultivated by Vacheron Constantin. Inspired by a chronograph introduced by the Maison in 1928, its architecture combines a curved case middle with a square bezel and a round watch glass."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Malte "Since 1912, the Manufacture has associated the emblematic curves of the Malte collection with the most prestigious watch mechanisms. Bearing the name of a watch component that has become the Vacheron Constantin emblem, this collection encompasses timepieces featuring harmoniously pleasing lines. The powerful design of the tonneau (barrel) shape sets a perfect stage for the technical excellence of Haute Horlogerie."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Quai de I’Ile "While its name recalls the historical site of Vacheron Constantin, a symbol of Geneva’s horological excellence and home to the master cabinotiers of the 18th century, the Quai de l’Ile collection is resolutely embedded in the 21st century. It mirrors the artistic flair with which Vacheron Constantin reinterprets a technical and aesthetic heritage built on over 260 years of uninterrupted history."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Overseas "The Overseas collection, relaunched in 2016, conveys the spirit of travel in all its rich diversity. This openness to the world, inherited from François Constantin, has remained at the core of the Maison’s philosophy ever since its founding. Resulting from 5 years of development, the collection has been designed in a spirit of casual elegance and practicality. Enhanced by their interchangeable straps/bracelets and easy-fit system, Overseas timepieces are the perfect travelling companions."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION 1972 "The 1972 collection pays tribute to an asymmetrical model created that same year to mark the official presentation to the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin of the much-coveted “Diplôme du Prestige de la F 1st-copy-watches-in-singapore-rid-0.html. omega watches seamaster 300m chronometerrance”, an award honouring its expertise in the realm of design and craftsmanship. Testifying to the creative freedom exercised by the Maison, this inimitable aesthetic signature is intended for a clientele looking for daring elegance infused with undeniably strong character."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Historiques "In tribute to the uninterrupted creativity displayed by Vacheron Constantin since 1755, the Historiques line provides contemporary reinterpretations of iconic models from the prestigious heritage of the Maison. It draws inspiration from the legendary creations that have punctuated more than 260 years of expertise through models combining rigorous technicality and bold aesthetics."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Heures Créatives "The Heures Créatives collection is inspired by the women’s watches developed by Vacheron Constantin during the 1920s, 1930s and 1970s. These precious timepieces embody the prolific creativity of these periods, while their design and their feminine curves are imbued with a resolutely contemporary elegance. These horological gems harbour a mechanical heart reflecting the finest watchmaking traditions."

DISCOVER THE COLLECTION Métiers d'Art "Celebrating decorative techniques applied to watchmaking and jewellery, the watches composing the Métiers d’Art collection derive their inspiration from art and culture. Beautifully enhanced by the master artisans of the Manufacture, these authentic works of art testify to creativity that is open to the world, as well as to know-how passed down through the generations."

I will be traveling to Geneva in the coming months... I have never been there. It is my understanding that a Daytona Rolex (Stainless Steel) is roughly $7,500 - $8,500 retail price.

However, any authorized Rolex dealer/jeweler will normally sell this watch for $11,500 -$12,000.

Is it possible to buy this watch (or any Rolex) directly from Rolex (headquarters/store) without the Jeweler/watch store mark up? Or, do you have do purchase from an "authorized Rolex dealer," and subject to their mark up, etc.

Bottom line... Is it a much better deal to purchase a Rolex in Geneva?

Thank You.

First, I would be very surprised if Rolex would even dare to undercut their dealers by selling "factory direct."

You need to get prices for the watch here in the US and then go to reputable jewelers in Switzerland and see if they can do better. DO NOT buy the watch from anyone except a reputable jeweler because there are so many knock offs and you have to be an expert to tell from the real thing. The knock off will include official warranty paperwork, etc. The only way to do this is to buy from an established and reputable jeweler.

Additionally, customs will charge you import duty on the watch. You can determine how much that will be through their website. Add that to the price in Switerland before you decide whether buying there will save you money.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your response. I really appreciate it. The Rolex watch I am looking for is in high demand. Typically, most "authorized Rolex dealers" in the US only get one, or two of them a year to sell. Therefore, from what I have seen... The price typically is higher than it's "retail price." My question is... If I'm in Geneva, Switzerland at the Rolex headquarters, etc. I would assume I would not have a supply issue on getting the Rolex watch I desire. I'm not looking to get the watch at a discount. I just would like to pay the actual retail price for the Rolex Daytona (Stainless Steel). Is it possibe that I can purchase this watch (or, any Rolex) without the "mark up," due to lack of supply in the United States? Can anyone please advise??? Thanks.

Get the price of the watch, INCLUDING your local sales tax, from your local jeweler. When you get to Geneva or Zürich go to Bucherer and price a comparable model.

http://www.bucherer.com/en/home.html

You will have to pay the 7.6% VAT tax upfront and get a VAT refund form. Have the merchant fill-out the VAT refund form, get the form stamped by Swiss customs at the airport and go the Global Refund office to receive a refund of the VAT less a small handling fee.

www.globalrefund.com/default.asp…

Today 1 Swiss Franc ≈ $0.8442 USD

http://www.xe.com/ucc/

Each returning US citizen [including children and infants] is allowed an $800 personal exemption and these exemptions can be combined.

cbp.gov/xp/…duty_free.xml

Yes, you are supposed to declare and itemize purchases over $1,000 USD upon return to the U.S. and pay the excess Duty. The Duty rate is 3% per $1,000 which is less than your local sales tax.

cbp.gov/xp/…paying_duty.xml

To determine the amount to declare to US Customs, you would take the price in Swiss Francs less the VAT amount and convert that to USD. US Customs will take that amount, substract your combined personal exemptions and ask you to pay a 3% Duty per $1000.

Basically, you take the amout you paid in USD less your exemptions, add 3% and compare that with the price the watch would cost at your local Rolex jeweler.

I bought my Rolex Oyster Datejust 21 years ago from Bucherer in Geneva for the equivalent of $1,700 USD. At that time, I got the VAT refund, did not pay my local 5.9% sales tax, did pay $90 excess duty to US Customs and saved 15% overall.

The current appraised replacement value of my Rolex for insurance purposes is $7,500 USD. It was then and always will be a good investment.

I agree that Bucherer is the place to buy a Rolex, but in my experience, while there is a better selection of watches in Geneva, the prices can be higher than in the US. The dollar has been taking a dive lately, and that could be quite meaningful on such a big purchase.
