Catalogue Note

The Mercator series was first introduced in 1994 to commemorate Gerardus Mercator, the famous cartographer and humanist, on the 400th anniversary of his death. The case is inspired by a 1940s Vacheron Constantin model known as the "Geographique". The current dial depicts the map of Africa and Asia as drawn by Gerardus Mercator in 1587.
