Do better if possible, and that is always possible

François Constantin uttered these words on July 5, 1819. Now legendary, they speak volumes to the spirit of Vacheron Constantin. Over the centuries, the Maison has shrewdly intertwined tradition with innovation to acquire the technical, aesthetic, artistic and human capital that shapes its vision of time. From setting out to conquer the skies to tracking great explorers, passion for fine craftsmanship and human hands are behind every feat it accomplishes.
