"In 2005, Vacheron Constantin, the world's oldest watch manufacturer in operation, celebrates its 250th anniversary. The famous Geneva house has continued to offer exceptional timepieces, from the first well-preserved watch, manufactured around 1760, to extraordinary contemporary mechanical devices with movements synchronized at 28,800 alternations per hour." "Illustrated with magnificent photographs taken for the occasion, the first part of this work describes the history of a house that is over two centuries old. The second part is dedicated to a catalogue of the prestigious watchmaking collection, gathered in Geneva by Vacheron Constantin. This catalogue presents the factory's most significant pieces, based upon a classification that does credit to the artistic trades that encompass fine watchmaking."--BOOK JACKET.
