Item description for The Secrets of Vacheron Constantin: 250 Years of History by Franco Cologni...

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.
Franco Cologni, writer and historian, has published many works on jewelry and the history of the clock industry including Cartier: The Tank Watch (Flammarion). Dominique Fléchon, historian and expert on fine watch making, has written several articles and books. She contributed to Cartier: The Tank Watch.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Secrets of Vacheron Constantin: 250 Years of History?

Impressive review of Vacheron & Constantin  Jul 13, 2007
Not only is this book stunningly beautiful but it is well written and informative. The photographs are superb and the information given on the developments of watch technology through the various eras of V&C's 250 years are related to the historic context of the particular era. This is much more than a coffee table book, it is one that you will want to go back to and read over.
