In the middle of the 18th Century, in the city of Geneva, a young man called Jean-Marc Vacheron decided to open his own watch-making workshop. This exceptional craftsman founded a business that was to become one of the most renowned in the science of time. Recognized as the world's oldest watch manufacturer in continuous operation since 1755, and founder of the spirit of technical and precious Haute Horlogerie, Vacheron Constantin has been making horological history for over 250 years. While honoring its past, Vacheron Constantin remains at the forefront of technical horology by creating high complication timepieces with an unrivalled level of hand-finishing. Vacheron Constantin timepieces are considered aesthetic masterpieces, positioned at the pinnacle of Haute Horologerie, where precision meets perfection.
Selected by presidents, worn by leaders across the globe since 1858, Vacheron Constantin watches are rugged yet elegant, innovative and classic, and the brand and style preferred by men and women who are unafraid of adventure and exploration. Today, modern celebrities still see the value in this brand, with this watch having been spotted on the wrist of Alexander Skarsgard, who is known for his role as Tarzan, producer Vishal Rungta, Tim Story, the director of “Ride Along,” and Gold actor, Edgar Ramirez. The brand is known for its sport Overseas collection and the more dressy Patrimony family.
History of Vacheron Constantin
The tradition of Vacheron watches was started by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755 in the Vallée de Joux outside of Geneva. It is at this time he gathered basic materials and created a true timekeeping masterpiece. In 1785, Vacheron’s son, Abraham, took over the watchmaking business, and this was the time of the French Revolution. The business has remained in the family, passing to the grandson, who was the first to initiate exports of the watch to Italy and France. Even today, brand’s legacy continues, and every piece created still undergoes careful scrutiny by the Geneva office to make sure that the watch’s quality meets the requirements to receive the Hallmark of Geneva seal of approval. Today, Vacheron Constantin is known as part of the “Holy Trinity” of watch brands alongside Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet.
What Makes Vacheron Constantin Watches So Appealing?
Excellence is a term used often for describing Vacheron Constantin watches. The use of precious stones and metals in each piece, along with the exquisite and precise craftsmanship involved in the manufacturing process, make this brand of watch one of the most sought after, and exclusive, available around the globe today.
Why Should You Purchase a Pre-Owned Vacheron Watch?
Purchasing a Vacheron watch new can be quite an investment. Additionally, the options are typically limited to the models in production today. For those who appreciate the initial efforts made by the company, or even some of the vintage models, buying used Vacheron Constantin watches from WatchBox is a smarter option. Rather than being limited to the watches available, you will find a huge array of past and present models, all in pristine condition and all with the exquisite quality and precision design you would expect from the Vacheron brand, backed by the WatchBox warranty.
