Vacheron Constantin was founded in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron, an independent watchmaker in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1810, Jacques-Barthélemy Vacheron, his grandson, became the head of the company and he was the first to initiate the company's exports to France and Italy.
In 1833, the company hired Georges-Auguste Leschot who was an inventor and his creations turned out to be successful for the company. His inventions had a great impact on the watchmaking industry in general.
He was the first person to standardize watch movements into Calibers. In 1979 Vacheron Constantin made Kallista, one of the most expensive wristwatches. Kallista had 118 emerald-cut diamonds and it took about 6,000 hours for the watch masters to make this watch and about 20 months for jewelers to enrich the watch.
In 2015, during the manufacturer's 260th anniversary, Vacheron Constantin revealed the world's most complicated mechanical watch, named Reference 57260. It took three watchmakers eight years to build the 57-complication watch at the request of a client!
The Patrimony line is Vacheron Constantin’s most classic one and one of the best executed, elegant luxury lines in the world of watches. Circular perfection, a quest for essentials, harmonious proportions. Patrimony epitomizes stylistic purity, inspired by Vacheron Constantin models from the 1950s.
