History: Vacheron & Constantin was founded in 1755 in Geneva by the watchmaker and historian Jean-Marc Vacheron. In 1819, Francois Constantin joined the firm. His main task was to travel to France and Italy to sell the watches. Georges Leschot came to the firm in 1839 to help accomplish the biggest challenge of the time, the mechanical manufacture of watch parts. In 1880 the firm adopted the Gross of Malta as their emblem. In this period, they were pioneers in the development of the watch-bracelet. Today they remain innovators, creating high quality pieces with all of the most complicated mechanisms such as chronographs, repetitions and calendars.
