Vacheron Constantin has long combined centuries-old traditional craftsmanship with the latest in horological technology to produce ever-more sophisticated timepieces. Currently the company?s movement range runs from simple models with hour, minute and second hands, to models with more complex constructions, such as perpetual calendars, chronographs, moon phase and jumping hours. Other timepieces are equipped with a tourbillon regulator or feature a complex mechanism such as minute repeaters.
