Vacheron Constantin was founded in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron, an independent watchmaker in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1770, his company created the first complication, and nine years later he designed the first engine-turned dials.
Past owners of Vacheron Constantin watches include Napoleon Bonaparte, Pope Pius XI, Edward VIII, and Harry Truman. For Vacheron Constantin, the quest for excellence is a state of mind and a process that involves each stage of production, from design to finishing.
The company boasts an uninterrupted history of 260 years devoted to watchmaking excellence.
