It has had the ancient replica watch manufacturer in the world more than 2 1/2 centuries of hard work, the production of exceptional haute horlogerie watches, as well as a major auction in 2003 to finally climb up towards the elevated rank it justifiably justifies. The brand's owners have stated that despite the fact that we exist in a esteemed planet, it is necessary for us to stay humble and to strictly adhere to our ethic an unusual tactic in a field where cockiness is legion. Indeed, Vacheron Constantin, that has been bought by the Richemont group in The early nineties, enjoys a particular place in contemporary horology: its technical expertise goes side by side with its meticulous quest for elegance. To this end the company imbues everything that goes into crafting a wrist watch with the legacy of its heritage. Ethic and beauty are the bywords of the company, whose formation is limited to fewer than twenty thousand pieces for every year. Yes Vacheron Constantin has not flipped its back on human workmanship.
To this day each piece is elaborated and finished manually, and over 75 % of the designer watches to result from the Vacheron Constantin workshop bear the Poincon de Geneva, the mark of the utmost degree of wrist watch generating craft. The ultra-thin timepieces fitted with the .04-inch-high caliber VC, produced in the 50s and 1960s, have grown archetypes of their kind, as have the designer watches with finely enameled dials in the Metiers Art series. The emblem delivers a clean, complex beauty in its finishing (including the most minute pieces happen to have been discreetly embellished with cotes de Geneva).
