VACHERON CONSTANTIN The company was founded in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron, an independent watchmaker in Geneva, Switzerland. Besides being a young businessman, Vacheron was also a talented craftsman.
In 1770 his company created the first complication, and nine years later he designed the first engine-turned dials. The son of Jean-Marc Vacheron, Abraham, took over the family business in 1785. During this period the company was able to survive the French Revolution (17891799).
Later, in 1810, Jaques-Barthélemy Vacheron, the grandson of the founder, became the head of the company. He was the first to initiate the company's exports to France and Italy. Later, Jaques-Barthélemy realized that he was not able to handle his business alone. In order to travel overseas and sell the company's products, he needed a partner.
Consequently, in 1819 François Constantin became the associate of Vacheron. The company continued its activity under the name Vacheron & Constantin. One of the greatest names in Swiss watchmaking, VACHERON CONSTANTIN is the archetype of the Prestige Swiss Watch Company.
