Vacheron Constantin has now refocused on the development of ultra-thin movements. This Geneva-based manufacturer has always been closely involved in this historic and unique field, as in the 1950s and 1960s, Vacheron Constantin launched the world’s thinnest watch.
Today, Vacheron Constantin is enriching the brand’s “historic” collection with two new designs inspired by tradition, each of which has been given legendary quality and a new, stylish touch.
