The series started with James Bay: Live from the Artists Den. The intimate concert was held at Webster Hallin New York City on Sunday and will air on PBS. Vacheron Constantin’s dedication to the art of mechanical watchmaking and attention to craftsmanship makes the Maison a perfect fit for what inspires James Bay and his talents.
Grammy Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning Bay performed live and participated in an intimate pre-show moderated chat presented by timepiece maker Vacheron Constantin.
