In 1755 a brilliant master-watchmaker named Jean-Marc Vacheron opened his workshop at the heart of Geneva and hired its first apprentice. He started to transmit his talent, his knowledge and his sense of excellence to numerous generations of his descendents.
At this time he could not have foreseen what a successful business Vacheron Constantin would become. Likewise, he certainly could not have anticipated that more than 255 years later, the special “Vacheron Constantin” edition of the watch magazine “WatchTime” would be available as an iPad application.
About Vacheron Constantin
Vacheron Constantin is the world’s oldest watch manufactory that 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.
Vacheron Constantin – a branch of the Richemont Group since 1996 – runs two Swiss production sites with complementary activities: the new site in Plan-les-Ouates/Geneva, a contemporary manufacture and the brand's international headquarters where the company moved to in August 2004; and the "Ateliers" in the Vallée de Joux, which are home to the movement Research and Development unit and to the manufacturing of the components of mechanical movements.
Vacheron Constantin currently employs around 500 people worldwide, including about 400 watchmakers, engineers, designers, craftsmen and staff in Switzerland. The company has developed its business in almost 80 countries around the world and is currently distributed through 25 exclusive boutiques, as well as a network of about 450 carefully selected points of sale.
