Watchmaking Genius: The Swiss watchmaking industry throughout its history has known many names of genius watch manufacturers. All of them tried to keep their secret and pass the tradition of watch manufacturing from father to son. Unfortunately not all of these manufacturers were able to survive on the watch market, and there are many reasons ranging from revolutions and wars and till some economic and political crises.
History of 250 years: The most remarkable watch brand able to survive various ups and downs and write a history of 250 years is Vacheron Constantin. Founded in 1755 the company creates magnificent timepieces that are both: marvelously designed and technically perfect.
The company creates watches that represent more than some simple timekeepers; the models of Vacheron Constantin have extremely sophisticated mechanisms which can be seen in some of its skeleton models or the models with transparent case back covered with sapphire crystal.
Revolutionary ideas: The company's first complication timepiece was created in 1770. It included an engine turned dials and it was also a revolutionary six quarter-repeater model of that time. The hours and the quarters of the watch could be stricken upon request.
In 1839, Georges-Auguste Leschot, was at that time monitoring the manufacturing operations, made an important step for the company when he standardized movements into calibers which later proved to be a revolution in the art of watch manufacturing.
Georges-Auguste Leschot was the first one to introduce a special technology into the industry of watchmaking. He was able to design a pantographic device. The device allowed mechanical reproduction of some specific parts of a watch mechanism.
Most remarkable: Some of the most remarkable watches that need to be outlined from Vacheron Constantin collections are: Patrimony: Power Reserve; Les Essentielles: Ladies 1972 and Malte: Perpetual Calendar Chronograph.
The first model, Patrimony Power Reserve, refers to the Compilations collection. It has a specific dial which is new for the brand; it has a lined guilloche pattern.

Les Essentielles: Ladies 1972 is mainly focused on the series of watches from 1972. This model, designed exclusively for women has an 18 carat yellow gold bracelet called Milanese Mesh. The case is enriched with a row of brilliant-cut diamonds. The watch is generally great for both an everyday wear and fashion.
