TIME WELL SPENT: Architect Richard Meier, author Salman Rushdie and news anchor Charlie Rose will be feted tonight by Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin at the company’s launch party for its new watch, the Quai de l’Ile. The company will celebrate the trio’s achievements in their fields as well as contributions they have made to the Afghanistan World Foundation. One of the major achievements of the foundation is in providing mobile medical units to victims of violence in Afghanistan, especially those who have been harmed by land mines. Since time is of the essence in these situations, it was a natural association for the fabled watchmaker. The watch, which is named after the maison’s founding address in Geneva, was created in collaboration with Swiss designer Richard Pfund and is virtually counterfeit-proof. Grammy Award winner Ne-Yo will perform for the likes of Katie Lee Joel, Susan Sarandon, Kate Bell, Byrdie Bell and Boston Celtic basketball champ Ray Allen, all of whom are expected to attend.
