Watchmaking / Vacheron Constantin

vacheron-constantinSeptember 17th 1755: Jean-Marc Vacheron, a youthful 24-year-old Geneva watchmaker, signed on his apprentice before a notary public. This contract, the oldest known document in the history of Vacheron Constantin, officially marked the birth of the watch Manufacture that is now – the oldest in the world. In more than 260 years of uninterrupted history, Vacheron Constantin has created a partnership between century-old savoir-faire and cutting-edge technology, aimed in order to create increasingly sophisticated timepieces. The Maison offers a whole range of movements, from the simplest – which indicate hours, minutes and seconds – to the most sophisticated characterized by complications such as Perpetual Calendar, Chronograph, Moon Phases, Heure sautante, Tourbillon or Minute Repetition.
