    "Do better if possible and that is always possible," remains the motto of the prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer Vacheron Constantin. Founded in 1755 by the 24-year-old Jean-Marc Vacheron, who would develop a reputation for crafting superb and elaborate wristwatches. Vacheron Constantin was the first watchmaker to create engine-turned dials and to receive the Diplome Prestige de la France to honor their design and craftsmanship work. Outfitting clients such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Duke of Windsor, and Harry Truman, the brand incorporated Geneva's grand traditions of enameling, piercing and engraving. When King Farouk of Egypt visited Geneva in 1935, Vacheron Constantin fashioned him a jeweled pocket watch with a total of 57 complications. Today, Vacheron Constantin continues its history of mechanical and artistic achievement by launching innovative luxury sports chronographs.
