Vacheron Constantin is the oldest manufacturer of fine watches in the entire world. Jean Marc Vacheron established the watch company in Geneva, Switzerland in 1755. Through the years, the company has maintained the highest standards of excellence and style. It has also played an important role in timepiece innovation and technology.
Vacheron was able to create his own complication in 1770. Nine years later, he was able to create the first engine-turned dials. The company is also credited with creating the first six quarter-repeater watches that can strike the hours and the quarters upon request.
