From the Publisher. Geneva-based Vacheron Constantin has maintained its reputation for producing exceptional timepieces, from its first watch circa 1760 to its extraordinary mechanical watches of today. Highly collectible, these prestigious timepieces are conceived as much to seduce by their elegance as to provide precision timekeeping. An unwavering commitment to excellence is the firm's hallmark, and celebrations for its 250th anniversary include the renovation of its flagship store and opening of a new manufactory in Geneva, the creation of a magnum opus timepiece, and the publication of this book. Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs, the book traces the rich history of the manufacture and includes an informative catalog of timepieces and a guide to the watchmaker's art that has been enriched by a unique artistic and technical expertise compiled over two and a half centuries.

A pal of mine is an executive at Vacheron Constantin and gifted me this book. It’s beautiful, but the history and minutiae about watchmaking are a bit much for me. The pictures are killer, though!
