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.
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.
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.
