260 Years of Excellence
“Do better if possible, and that is always possible.” François Constantin uttered these words on July 5, 1819. Now legendary, they speak volumes to the spirit of Vacheron Constantin. Over the centuries, the company has shrewdly intertwined tradition with innovation to acquire the technical, aesthetic, artistic and human capital that shapes its vision of time.
Founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watchmaking manufacture in the world. At no time in its 260-year history has it ever stopped creating, enhancing and reinventing itself. Backed by a strong heritage of passing watchmaking excellence and stylistic ingenuity down generations of master craftsmen, the company’s creations embody the exacting standards of Fine Watchmaking. A technical signature and distinctive look.
