WATCHES OF SWITZERLAND IS PERTH'S EXCLUSIVE RETAILER OF VACHERON CONSTANTIN
FOR 262 YEARS, VACHERON CONSTANTIN HAS MANAGED TO NOT ONLY MAINTAIN ITS PLACE OF PRESTIGE AMONGST THE ‘HOLY TRINITY’ (OR ‘BIG THREE’) OF SWISS WATCHMAKING, BUT ALSO CONTINUES TO LEAD FROM THE FRONT IN THE WORLD OF HAUTE HOROLOGY.
Founded on 17 September 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron, Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watch manufacturer still in continuous operation. Its phenomenal reputation has been earned through the creation, manufacture and finishing of extraordinary ultra-complicated, artisanal and aesthetic watches. Vacheron Constantin, today, can still lay claim to the title of manufacturer of the most complicated watch ever created. Released in 2015, the Reference 57260 boasts an astounding 57 complications, a remarkable feat, even when compared to the other prestigious haute horology makers. On the artisanal crafts, Vacheron Constantin is a master of Grand Feu enamelling, guilloché, engraving and gemsetting. Not to mention its attention to minutiae detail in cases, hands, hour markers and finishings.
While the brand’s illustrious list of clients has included Emperors, , Popes , Kings and Presidents , Vacheron Constantin has always remained discretion itself regarding the identity of its clients.
The current range comprises ten distinct collections: Patrimony, Traditionelle, Malte, Overseas, 1972, Historiques, and Heures Créatives .
The company’s motto (which remains today), “Do better if possible and that is always possible,” was penned in a letter by François Constantin in 1819.
