In the world of leather goods, the name Serapian is synonymous with excellence in craftsmanship and Milanese elegance. The Maison was founded in 1928 by Stefano Serapian in Milan. Since then, Serapian’s creations for both men and women have attracted a loyal following of discerning connoisseurs. Entirely made in Italy from the most noble leathers and materials, Serapian leather offer is recognized for its iconic Mosaico craft, refined tonal palette and soft geometric shapes.
Balancing tradition and innovation, Serapian remains one of the few Maisons to offer a complete Bespoke Service in its Atelier located in the heart of Milan. A unique experience, under the expert eye of Giovanni Nodari Serapian, for those whom customization remains the key to exclusivity.
Today at Serapian they are proudly introducing their second collaboration with storied timepiece maker Vacheron Constantin. The watchmaking Maison celebrates the anniversary of one of their iconic models, the American 1921. Serapian joins the celebration by enhancing the retro-touch of its silver-toned dial with a Serapian patinated brown calf leather strap, especially crafted in Milan for this momentous occasion.
Founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watchmaking manufacture in uninterrupted activity for more than 260 years. At no time in its history has it ever stopped creating, enhancing and reinventing itself. Backed by a strong heritage of passing watchmaking excellence and stylistic ingenuity down generations of master craftsmen, the company’s creations embody the exacting standards of Fine Watchmaking. A technical signature and distinctive look.
A bridge between the past and future of the Swiss Maison, the Vacheron Constantin Heritage department has a place of its own within the Manufacture. Spanning an exceptional timeline that began in 1755 and overseeing a unique collection, it is anything but a simple museum.
The research and expertise of the teams working there on a daily basis are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the creation of new collections and a masterful reference for the Restoration workshop. The department preserves 800 machine tools, workbenches and sets of watchmaking tools, along with substantial documentary and iconographic archives. No less than 420 linear metres are taken up by an infinite wealth of production and accounting registers comprising foreign sales, correspondence between associates, suppliers and clients, various documents and photographs. All contribute to shedding both historical and artistic light on Vacheron Constantin’s activity through the years and centuries.
