Most men love luxury timepieces not only because they are functional, but also because they make a powerful statement. Wearing one communicates a lot about a wearer’s style and personality. This is why good wristwatches, particularly from time-tested brands like Vacheron Constantin, never go out of style.
Vacheron Constantin is one of the biggest names in the watchmaking industry. With Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, it makes up the Big Three in Swiss watchmaking business.
A brief history
The foundation date of Vacheron Constantin is not clear. It claims to be the world’s oldest uninterrupted watch manufacturer. Experts say its origin may be traced back to 1755, 1785, or perhaps, 1908. Despite some arguments about the date of its origin, Vacheron Constantinhas become a leading name in the watchmaking industry today.
One of the best things about Vacheron Constantin is that it combines time-honoured watchmaking techniques and modern technology to create groundbreaking and elegant timepieces. It is also one of the most innovative companies in the industry, having introduced a machine that can duplicate watch parts. This machine contributes in revolutionising the industry of watchmaking, saving horologists time and money.
Vacheron Constantin crafts exceptional watches, with exclusive pieces developed in a limited edition for select international boutiques.
The costs of a brand new Vacheron Constantin are high. Its investment value is also good, that buying used luxury watches from this manufacturer is a sound investment.
In 1979, Vacheron Constantin manufactured the world’s most expensive wristwatch sold at 5 million dollars. Kallista, which means ‘the most wonderful’ in Greek, is adorned with 118 emerald-cut diamonds. This timepiece now costs 11 million dollars.
Vacheron Constantin also takes pride on its Tour de I’Ille, which was created for the company’s 250th year and costs 1.5 million dollars back then. The watch has 16 complications made possible by its 834 component parts.
Timepieces from Vacheron Constantin are considered works of art. Each timepiece, with its intricate design, costs a great deal. This luxury watch, however, is worth its price. The Vacheron Constantin price in Dubai and in other parts of the world may vary. To get a timepiece at a lower price, consider shops offering used luxury timepieces.
The legacy of master horologists continues in wristwatches by Vacheron Constantin. With the brand’s technique of combining the classic and the modern, Vacheron Constantin will continue to be a powerful name in the watchmaking industry.
