Founded in 1755 in Geneva, Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watchmaking manufacture in the world, with an uninterrupted activity over the past 260 years. Vacheron familly led the Company until 1819, when François Constantin joins the company to develop the business, mostly in the Americas. François Constantin motto was "Do better if possible, which is always doable" Vacheron Constantin is one of the few manufactures enabled to bear the Hallmark of Geneva (Poinçon de Genève), obtained in 1901. Richemont group acquires the company in 1996. With the expertise of precious and technical fine watchmaking, Vacheron Constantin continues to design, develop and produce exceptional timekeepers, remaining close to the three fundamentals of the Maison: perfectly mastered technique, harmonious and inspired aesthetics, and an extremely high level of craftsmanship and finishing touches. Member of the WALPOLE BRITISH LUXURY ASSOCIATION.
