University of Geneva Researcher Awarded with Overseas Watch

Dec 04, 2009
The renowned watchmaker Vacheron Constantin is honored to be associated with the humanities. The brand eloquently demonstrates its priorities, cooperating with such outstanding personalities as conductor Imma Shara, as well as with universally-known museums, whose tribal art has encouraged the extraordinary line of Les Masques watches.

Established by Jean-Marc Vacheron and Francois Constantin over 250 years ago, the Geneva horological company carries on the centuries old masterful traditions and expertise.

Just as well, the brand expresses its strong commitment to the scientific progress. Since 1948, Vacheron Constantin has annually awarded distinctions to outstanding personalities from the University of Geneva, who achieved a lot in the field of astronomy, mathematics, and other fields.

This year, the watch company has decided on Dr. Dominique Eckert, a post-doctoral researcher in the institution's Faculty of Science. Dr. Eckert got to the front of the grid due to his impressive treatise "The Integral View of Galaxy Clusters", thus leaving behind a group of highly-qualified potential candidates at the university.

To recognize Dominique Eckerts brilliant activity, Vacheron Constantin also bestowed the researcher with its Overseas watch, sculptured in stainless steel.

Demonstrating its character, cast in a sportive style, the Overseas watch comes with a supremely elegant case and bracelet. The case inside has a shield of iron, which serves to protect the mechanism from magnetism.

Animating this masterpiece is a hand-finished automatic mechanical movement.

As found out, Vacheron Constantin CEO Juan Carlos Torres, a staunch advocate of the brands core values in the upscale venues all over the world, was extremely delighted to present the accolade to Dr.Eckert.
