The philosophy of Vacheron Constantin dates back to 1819 when François Constantin coined the quote “Do better if possible, and that is always possible.” Relentlessly dedicated to this tradition, the Maison has acquired the necessary handicraft, aesthetic and personal skills to fulfill the credo for more than two centuries. As a loyal companion on journeys or in the conquest of the heavens, every challenge is accepted and mastered with passion.
In 2016, the Overseas Collection was revised. It is intended to express purity. Since the times of co-founder François Constantin, purity has always been at the core of the philosophy of the Maison. To underscore the casual elegance and perfect functionality that defines the line, the Overseas timepieces were equipped with interchangeable bracelets, making them ideal travel companions.
The Patrimony Collection limits itself to the essentials. Stylish simplicity, clean lines, and classic elegance guarantee a balanced relationship between edges and curves and a harmonious form language. The Patrimony models are also very comfortable to wear on the wrist as they recall the flat cases of the 1950s.
