The world’s oldest watch manufacturer coming from Switzerland, Vacheron Constantin, is apparently interested in blockchain for timepieces – and about to start using the blockchain technology to track its watches. The news went viral in the altcoin news section after they were shared by the lifestyle magazine Robb Report on May 24.
Originally founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is known as the world’s oldest watch manufacturer. Now that the brand is interested in blockchain for timepieces, it also plans to issue a paper and a digital certificate to each of its vintage watches, putting the technology to actual work.
“Blockchain certification serves to avoid paper authentication, which can easily be forged,” the company said in a press release.
As the latest cryptocurrency news show, Vacheron Constantin will use blockchain tech to integrate additional information in the certificate – as well as a complete history of the product and manufacturer. The blockchain for timepieces initiative will apparently help and fight counterfeiters while guaranteeing authenticity of the watches as well as protecting the customers from purchasing fake ones.
“[Blockchain] makes it possible to create a forgery-proof digital certificate of authenticity, which follows the watch throughout its life, even if that involves several changes of owner. A unique number is thus assigned to a unique object, making the two inseparable and securing data relating to the property, value, nature and authenticity of the timepiece,” the company said in an official statement.
Vacheron Constantin is however not the first big manufacturer interested in blockchain for as a technology and featured in the coming altcoin news. Earlier this year, the major global fiber producer Lenzing announced that it will implement blockchain and bring more transparency to its fiber supply chain, launching a traceabilit platform in 2020 as the company reports showed.
“Founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin will begin using Blockchain immediately with timepieces in its Les Collectionneurs program. Now each of the vintage watches, which have been patiently tracked down by the maison’s heritage specialists and restored to perfect working order before being sold at special events at their boutiques, will be sold with a paper certificate of authenticity along with an incorruptible digital certificate,” the news concluded
