Geneva-based Vacheron Constantin has maintained its reputation for producing exceptional timepieces, from its first watch circa 1760 to its extraordinary mechanical watches of today. Highly collectible, these prestigious timepieces are conceived as much to seduce by their elegance as to provide precision timekeeping. An unwavering commitment to excellence is the firm's hallmark, and celebrations for its 250th anniversary include the opening of a new manufactory in Geneva where the arts of the watchmaker will continue to flourish, the creation of a magnum opus timepiece, and the publication of this book. Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs, the book traces the rich history of the manufacture and includes an informative catalog of timepieces and a guide to the watchmaker's art that has been enriched by a unique artistic and technical expertise; the heritage of over two and a half centuries of creative work.
