Essay

During the mid-1940's Vacheron & Constantin experimented heavily with bold lug designs. Lugs were created with unique shapes and twists with Baroque styles. Vacheron & Constantin has established itself globally, becoming highly regarded in both watch collecting circles and high society. Acclaimed for their superior skill with design and quality they have created timepieces for such nobles as Empress Eugenie to whom they supplied a pendant watch, a pocket watch for Tsar Alexander II and several watches for Emperor Napoleon II that carried his portrait.
