Vacheron Constantin, the world’s oldest watch manufacture, has enjoyed uninterrupted activity since its founding in 1755. A full-fledged watch Manufacture, it masters the complete creative process, ranging from research and development of movements, the aesthetic definition of each of its models, the full set of stages in designing and making the watch components, through to entirely hand-crafted finishing.
Introduced in the 19th century by an industry long threatened with the scourge of counterfeiting, the Hallmark of Geneva is now regarded as a true horological philosophy and the symbol of horological perfection. Given legal status in 1886, the Hallmark of Geneva is probably one of the oldest professional hallmarks in any industry, recognised as a label of origin, but especially as a guarantee of superior quality. But while it is highly prized in the world of Haute Horlogerie, not just anyone who wants to can join the select circle of manufactories able to obtain it.
Vacheron Constantin – a branch of the Richemont Group since 1996 – currently employs more than 500 people worldwide, including more than 400 master watchmakers and watchmakers, engineers, designers, craftsmen and staff in Switzerland.
Vacheron Constantin has developed its business in almost 80 countries around the world, distributed through 60+ exclusive boutiques, as well as a network of less than 500 carefully selected points of sale. After all these years, Vacheron Constantin has maintained its major position worldwide in the high watchmaking segment and will continue to honor its craftsmanship through different means.
