Overview

This volume commemorates Vacheron Constantin’s uninterrupted 260-year history devoted to watchmaking excellence. Geneva-based Vacheron Constantin has maintained its reputation for producing exceptional timepieces, from its first watch circa 1760 to its extraordinary mechanical watches of today. Highly collectible, these prestigious timepieces are conceived as much to seduce by their elegance as to provide precision timekeeping. With specially commissioned photographs, the book traces the rich history of the manufacture and includes an informative catalog of timepieces and a guide to the watchmaker’s art. An unwavering commitment to excellence is the firm’s hallmark; the heritage of 260 years of unique artistic and technical expertise.
