Vacheron Constantin’s Milestones  

It is only expected for a brand that has been in the watchmaking industry for over 25 decades to have their fair share of achievements and accomplishments through the years. Here are some of Vacheron Constantin’s  notable milestones: 

Mastery of Complications 

In 1812, Vacheron Constantin was able to create a quarter repeater watch. At present, mastering the art of horological complications remains to be a Herculean task. The fact that the brand was able to perfect and innovate complications so early on was a step forward for the brand and the watchmaking industry. 

The Maltese Cross Logo 

In 1880, they officially trademarked the iconic Vacheron Constantin Maltese Cross Logo, which symbolized the brand’s constant pursuit for innovation, quality, reliability, and precision. This may seem like such a small act for a business but to them, it was a step closer to becoming a well established brand. 

The First Boutique 

In 1906, what started out as a simple workshop eventually became the brand’s first boutique. This was done to better accommodate clients and patrons especially after getting so much attention from royalties and the upper class. 

31 Time Zone  Watch 

In 1932, the first World Time watch with 31 time zones  was made into existence through a collaboration with Louis Cottier. The piece followed a one-of-a-kind mechanical movement while the outer bezel was adorned with over 31 major cities. 

Diplôme du Prestige de la France

In 1972, Vacheron Constantin was the first watch manufacturer awarded the Diplôme du Prestige de la France by the French government. This honor happens to be one of the most prestigious and highly sought after awards in Europe. The brand’s consistency and commitment to ensuring quality craftsmanship in all aspects is the reason behind all that they’ve accomplished. 

Reasons to Buy a Vacheron Constantin Watch

1. Unmatched quality

For those who don’t know, many of Vacheron Constantin pieces are actually awarded with a Geneva Seal. This is a form of certification given to Swiss brands that showcase the highest form of quality imaginable in their timepieces and Vacheron Constantin has been the recipient of this seal for over a century now. Aside from that, they are also known for their innovative features ranging from complex chronographs to the Tourbillon. This shows that their pieces use only the best technology wielded by equally amazing craftsmen.  

2. Superior brand reputation

As one of the oldest luxury timepiece manufacturers in the world, there is no doubt that watch collectors and patrons have nothing but high regard for Vacheron Constantin. They have been consistently making top quality pieces for over 250 years now.  At this point, there is little to nothing that can taint the name of the said brand. 

3. Exclusive and highly coveted

One of the reasons why you can be assured that their pieces are truly the best is because they don’t produce as many models compared to other luxury brands. This allows them to fully focus on the entire process of watchmaking and immediately accommodate inquiries/issues even after it has been bought. It also gives the brand a certain air of prestige and exclusivity whilst being sought-after by many. 

4. Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship in all aspects

By now, it is already known that Vacheron Constantin watches boast the highest form of quality but what about in terms of design? Well, Vacheron Constantin pieces are just as beautiful as they are functional. After over two centuries in the watchmaking industry, they have mastered the incorporation of elegance, simplicity, and luxury in their designs. Most, if not all, of Vacheron Constantin watches are aesthetically pleasing without being overwhelming. 

5. High appreciation value

There are only a few watch brands out there that are truly a no-brainer investment when it comes to appreciation value. Regardless of whether your collection has the most expensive Vacheron Constantin watches or the cheapest Vacheron Constantin watches, you don’t have to worry because almost every piece they’ve released continues to appreciate with time. If money is not a problem, getting a Vacheron Constantin piece may just be the perfect investment for you.  

History of Vacheron Constantin 

It all started in 1755 when Jean-Marc Vacheron decided to take on an apprentice in order to pass down his skills and learnings as a master watchmaker. The initiative and determination to keep his legacy alive symbolized the genesis of what we know as Vacheron Constantin today. While his skills played a crucial role in the development of the company, Jean-Marc Vacheron’s passion for watchmaking was the true essence of his heritage. In 1785, Abraham Vacheron stepped-up to take over his father’s business. Abraham’s biggest accomplishment was being able to manage the workshops amidst all the adversities that came after the French Revolution. This was another era that further solidified the brand’s reputation of “uninterrupted history”.   

During his time, Abraham Vacheron also chose to teach his own son the ropes of watchmaking which is why, by 1810, Jacques Barthélémi Vacheron started managing the family enterprise. From producing more complex pieces to expanding to other countries, this was definitely the beginning of a new era for the company. Another interesting event that occurred under Jacques was his meeting with François Constantin. The two successful men were able to bond over their many similarities most especially their love for beautifully complex timepieces. That friendship eventually became a partnership which paved the way for the "Vacheron et Constantin" company. Furthermore, it was also François Constantin that wrote the philosophy of the brand until today: “Do better if possible, and that is always possible.”

The Constantin magic did not stop with François. Abraham Constantin, François’ brother, was a well acclaimed painter of his time. This meant that he was in the constant presence of Europe’s nobility such as princes and renowned artists. Aside from simply garnering brand popularity from the elite, he also contributed his artistic senses through creating intricate designs for certain timepieces. He proved that he was more than just someone’s brother by bringing both fame and artistry to the house of Vacheron Constantin. 

Another key figure in the success of the brand is Georges-Auguste Leschot. The company today has utmost respect for this man who served as their technical director back in 1839. He was the perfect example of a true pioneer as he was able to convey his passion for the craft in every piece he made. The Pantograph was his most esteemed creation, a machine that ensured both quality and uniformity in the production of watch components. To put it simply, he was one of the few people who changed the watchmaking game forever. 

Vacheron Constantin only continued to progress as time passed on. As the level of competition became higher, the brand retaliated by speeding up the processes behind production and expanding to more international markets under Charles-César Vacheron. Just like how their pieces can transcend the restrictions of time, they believe that the brand can also go beyond the borders of familiar territory. At present, they are regarded as an unmatched manufacturer of luxury timepieces that boasts quality, perfection, elegance, and innovation all in one. 

Vacheron Constantin’s Famous Patrons 

From royalty to members of the high society, Vacheron Constantin has been a familiar companion to the upper class as early as the 1800s. Today, the sentiments remain the same as celebrities, politicians, and other notable figures are spotted sporting their own Vacheron Constantin watch. 

Alexander Skarsgård 

Alexander Skarsgård is an award winning actor best known for his roles in True Blood, Godzilla vs Kong, and many more. Back in 2016, he was seen wearing a piece from the Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection during his international press tour for The Legend of Tarzan film. It was a dapper Vacheron Constantin men's watch that featured a stainless steel case and a blue dial, a great watch for an equally amazing actor. 

Princess Diana

The late Princess Diana is known to have a rather extensive collection of beautiful timepieces which is why it is not surprising that she owns a Vacheron Constantin piece. While Vacheron Constantin men’s watches are truly superior, their ladies watches are equally great. Princess Diana owns a Vacheron Constantin diamond bracelet watch which happens to be Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding gift to her. As if the Vacheron Constantin watch was not enough, it being a present from her mother-in-law made it even more special. 

Tim Story

Tim is best known for directing some of the most popular films in Hollywood such as the Ride Along franchise, Fantastic Four, Tom & Jerry: The Movie, and many more. Aside from being a talented director, he is also a timepiece enthusiast. It is said that he rewards himself with a new watch at the beginning of every project he takes on. As his love for watches increased over time, he has also become a patron of Vacheron Constantin men’s watches. Tim sees the true value of luxury timepieces and is already thinking about passing on his collection to his children when they’re older.

Édgar Ramírez 

Édgar Ramírez is a well-known Venezuelan actor and Vacheron Constantin patron. He has been nominated for a Golden Globe award and an Emmy as well. In one occurrence, he was seen wearing the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony men’s watch in yellow gold for the premiere of one of his films in New York  City. He is also known to have a rather impressive watch collection, which he perceives as some of the most valuable items he owns. Overall, he has high regard for his Vacheron Constantin timepieces which can bring him back in time. 

Vacheron Constantin: A Tale As Old As Time

More than being the longest-running luxury timepiece manufacturer in the world, Vacheron Constantin is a brand that reflects the history and heritage of the watchmaking industry. They have seen it all and have met every challenge that came their way head on. There really is no question why many patrons believe that having a Vacheron Constantin piece is almost synonymous to saying “Ah, I’ve made it.”
