Vacheron Constantin and precision watchmaking
Vacheron Constantin is a Swiss watch brand created in 1755. It was founded by Jean-Marc Vacheron, who was close to the philosophers of the Enlightenment such as Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In 1770, the company created the first watchmaking complication. In 1819, his grandson Jacques-Barthélemy decided to join forces with François Constantin. The Maltese cross became one of the brand’s emblems in 1877. Vacheron Constantin was quick to establish itself in North America. Today, the company is owned by the Richemont group, which includes Jaeger LeCoultre.
The complications of Vacheron Constantin watches
In 2015, Vacheron Constantin continued to make a name for itself by creating a pocket watch with the world’s most complicated mechanism. It is also highlighting its craftsmanship by creating unique models. For the most prestigious editions, it is estimated that between 25,000 and 320,000 euros will be needed.
The iconic models
Vacheron Constantin watches have attracted a clientele of crowned heads such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Lady Diana. The brand includes a handful of “must-have” models, such as the “l’Oversas”, the “Patrimony” and the “Malte”. Prestigious collaborations have taken place, including with Fabergé, with the creation of an imperial egg with a watch as a surprise inside.
The price of a Vacheron Constantin watch at auction
The Vacheron Constantin brand is highly collected. It holds one of the records for the most expensive watches in the world with the one owned by King Fouad I of Egypt, which sold for 2.77 million dollars in 2005. Prices may vary from one watch to another. A watch “Traditionnelle Perpetual” was sold for almost 46,700 euros. Another model “Quai de l’île” sold for 20,800 euros. One of the criteria that allows a watch to increase in value is its state of preservation.
