“Pioneers of Time” – Vacheron Constantin

“Do better if possible, and that is always possible,” François Constantin wrote in a letter to Jacques Barthélémi Vacheron in 1819.

Vacheron Constantin was founded in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron and is today the longest-standing watchmaker across the globe after surviving the French Revolution and both world wars.

The ‘Traditionnelle’ is one of the brand’s key collections which pays a tribute to the demanding Geneva Haute Horlogerie traditions inherited from the 18th century.

Traditions that takes us back to a time of pioneers and explorers, where a humble yet talented watchmaker set out to create what endure as some of the most complicated timepieces in history.
