Vacheron Constantin is one of the most historically important, well finished major luxury watch brand in the world. They have been producing watches since 1755 without uninterrupted watch making marking 260 years in existence as a watch brand.
To celebrate this important event in time, It was just announced that this September 2015, Vacheron Constantin will unveil the worlds most complicated watch ever produced.
Representing an unprecedented technical evolution in the field of Haute Horlogerie, this watch is a creation born of a dream and a collector’s request, matched by the determination of the Manufacture in rising to this challenge.
EIGHT YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT WERE REQUIRED TO CREATE THIS POCKET WATCH
Entirely developed and crafted by three in-house watchmakers entirely dedicated to this project for eight years, backed by the Atelier Cabinotiers special orders team, this Grande Complication watch sets the seal on 260 years of expertise nurtured by a perpetual quest for excellence.
Developed both on classic watchmaking principles and on innovative 21st century technologies, this most complicated watch in the world embodies an incredible combination of time measurement complications and functions meeting the demanding Hallmark of Geneva criteria.
It reveals certain original complications that had to be calculated and developed ex nihilo. The other horological complications all benefited from improvements as well as technical or aesthetic modifications leading to the filing of numerous patents.
Creating the world’s most complicated watch called not only for constant perseverance, but also for unprecedented mastery of mathematics and craftsmanship.
More information on the broad array of complications including a number of firsts appearing in this exceptional watch, will be progressively revealed over the coming months.
