POWER HOUR

Powerful, sexy, and bold - our guests were immersed in an unforgettable black and white experience. Large campaign photographs welcomed them as they arrived to their reserved seating on the patio. The white-washed restaurant was accented by black floral centrepieces and black hourglasses at every table.

Happy Hour wouldn’t be complete without cocktails and canapés. Guests enjoyed our signature black cocktail - featuring local Canadian made House Black Vodka - or a glass of Moët & Chandon Brut Champagne as our white selection. A trio of canapés followed along with a three-part personal watch presentation.

ANATOMY of AUTOMATIC WATCHES

Introducing guests to the world of automatic watches, CEO and Co-Founder Jessica Chow visited every table and presented a handcrafted display case of a deconstructed automatic watch. She highlighted key parts of an automatic watch movement and explained how each part works together to tell time. Guests learned how the rotor powers the watch, how energy is stored in the mainspring, and how the familiar ticking comes from the escapement of the mechanical watch movement.

Guests also had the opportunity to see and hear how we created each signature component of the VIEREN watch collection, including our iconic rectangular watch cases, our matte tone-on-tone dial, and an close-up view of our signature 18K gold-plated reflector ring with minute tracker detail.

“One of our biggest lessons was just how small everything is - and we wanted people to experience that. There are over 160 pieces in an automatic movement… and if we’re off by even 0.1mm, the whole piece doesn’t fit together.”

COLLECTION DEBUT

We started with the Matte White watch emerging from a chiseled stark white-on-white icy block to showcase the original watch that inspired the collection. Adjacent, the White Diamond watch was draped delicately over frosted flora tips to highlight the sparkle of its 31 natural diamonds. Then, we took black to the extreme with the Matte Black watch featured in a stealth black display carved out of black volcanic rock and crystals. The hero piece of the collection, the Black Diamond watch was nestled on a black geometric basket weave with black iridescent feathers, mirroring the textures and dimension of the debossed geometric pattern on the dial.

As a special experience, we surprised guests with our new watch release - our Black Croc leather-on-leather watch. An experimental take on seamless continuity and a nod to the designer’s storied fashion career, we extended the black croc embossed leather from the band through to the dial for this statement timepiece. Merging sexy and subtlety, we bound our leather watch with black rope Shibari.

This was our opportunity to hear what our guests thought of the watch collection first hand. We were happy to hear people comment on how finely constructed everything is, the comfort of the rectangular watch case, and the subtle details etched on the inside of the 18K gold reflector ring. They had their favourites between black and white models, the classic matte and diamond versions, but many raved about the leather-on-leather watch. Which one is your favourite?
