Founded in Geneva in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watch Manufacture in the world to have maintained uninterrupted history for over 255 years. Representing the founders of the very spirit of technical and precious Haute Horlogerie, the men and women of Vacheron Constantin continue to design, develop and produce an array of exceptional timepieces that remain unwaveringly faithful to the three brand fundamentals: fully mastered technique, harmonious and inspired aesthetics, exquisite finishing. Vacheron Constantin ? a brand of the Richemont Group ? currently employs around 600 people worldwide, most of whom are based in the ultra-modern premises in Geneva. The brand is established in almost 80 countries around the world, distributed through 27 exclusive boutiques as well as a network of over 440 carefully selected points of sale. This one-of-a-kind creation depicts a flight of red and white doves - the Only Watch colors - born of the Métiers d?Art exercized within the Manufacture. These birds - symbols of hope and love - interlock exquisitely, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle or tessellations, in a truly stunning decorative motif.
