The story of the Vacheron Constantin 222 is set in the context of creation in 1970’s with the tremendous influence of Gerald Genta’s designs such as the Royal Oak (1972) and the Nautilus (1976). From 1975 to 1977, Vacheron Constantin, following the footsteps of its competitors, produced its first sports luxury watch : the Reference 2215 Chronometre Royal.
