Sunday, 11 January 2009

Vacheron Constantin watchesVacheron Constantin is among the very few brands that shaped and fostered the elite Swiss watch industry and still is an epitome of elegance fused in style. Vacheron Constantin is the most venerated name in the world's watchmaking history and over its 250 years journey, Vacheron Constantin never failed to be true to the admiration it earned since it produced its first model. Even today, Vacheron Constantin awes - its latest «Quai de l'Ile» grabbed the title in the «Men's Watch» category for 2008 at the Geneva Grand Prix d'Horlogerie. Precisely, the constancy of Vacheron Constantin's strife to bring in sophisticated novelty in each of its models is what serves them as an unfailing brand that itself is a definition of taste and superiority.

Vacheron Constantin is the oldest of the Swiss watch manufacturers in production till date. The company came into being with a brilliant watchmaker called Jean-Marc Vacheron in the middle of the 18th century and came with timepieces of diverse designs styles and shapes. They have been producing some of the world's most complicated and most posh wristwatches.  Vacheron Constantin was one of the three musketeers of the watch industry of Switzerland who laid the cornerstone of the eminence of Swiss watches. Together with Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin brought in a synergy founded on exuberance & originality in style, intricacy & fine craftsmanship in structure and savoir-faire & modishness in the exposure in watchmaking. It is this group led by Vacheron Constantin that gained Switzerland the reputation of being the finest watch manufacturer on earth. And today the Swiss watchmaking industry manufactures more than half of the globe's mechanical watches and foresees to get bigger market in all the populated continents. People rich in both cash and taste go all-out to own a piece of Vacheron Constantin; as if their nobility is incomplete without a Vacheron Constantin.

The master craftsmen of Vacheron Constantin have always taken the advantage of the cutting-edge technologies to bring into being meticulously styled gadgets that ensure security and service. For this, each piece of Vacheron Constantin reflects unyielding quality as well as amazing grace. This brand has given birth to surprising innovations such as the minute repeater, the power storage indicator, the permanent calendar and so on. Precious metals like gold, platinum, and silver have been in use to shape the infrastructure of Vacheron Constantin watches. Now, one quintessence of Vacheron Constantin's reputation to be the maker of the world's most complex timepiece is Tour de I'lle. This astonishing piece is made of 834 parts and 16 horological sophistications and the tourbillion is docked in a huge cage in the form of the Maltese Cross. And you should not be amazed to know that it took 5 years to finish crafting this piece of marvel.

The other groundbreaking hit of Vacheron Constantin is its Skeletons. These incredible timepieces are called so as the mechanical, self-winding movements of hundreds of tiny parts that constitute the watch's heart is visible through the sapphire crystal. The Malte Tourbillon Skeleton is one instance of this product line. This 30-meter water resistant model comes in either platinum or pink gold made transparent case and this skeleton has an automatic Vacheron Constantin Caliber  1790 12x12 ½ movement to produce seconds, minutes, hours, date and has a power store of about 45 hours. Men's Vacheron Constantin Skeleton Minute Repeater is another masterpiece in this class that came in a limited edition. It's an 18-carat rose gold wristwatch with leather belt and the gold-made case allows to see the dynamics of time production inside. The exclusivity of the model is that, upon order, the company adjusts tiny hammers inside the watch to beat a pair of gongs and bells to cheer up the hours and minutes. And Vacheron Constantin's most adored Vacheron Constantin Tourbillion is held to be among man's smartest creations. It too has an 18-carat rose gold-made case that allows a see-through into the tourbillion dynamism. This limited edition timepiece comes with a brown leather strap and a power reserve marker. But the charisma of the model comes with the consistent rotary motion of the carriage that contains the regulated organs of the timepiece's movement. By virtue of such rotations, the watch can defy the effect of gravity that distresses the accuracy of the timepiece and guarantees precision of time for ever.

It's no surprise that timepieces of such complicated make up will be among the most expensive stuffs and Vacheron Constantin watches really are. Some models of Vacheron Constantin would cost several hundred thousand of dollars and it's less likely that except the celebrities and tycoons an ordinary guy would not afford one. Vacheron Constantin replicas are fine alternatives for them. The replicas are the unblemished, fully functional timepieces that'll surely give you the feel of the elegance and richness of a 250 year old celebrated tradition.
