Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watch manufacturer in continuous operation. Jean-Marc Vacheron established the company in 1755. He produced some of the first horological complications and engine-turned dials. Vacheron Constantin remains at the pinnacle of high horology, considered part of the "Holy Trinity" alongside Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet. The Vacheron Constantin Malte is one of the pillars of the brand and is named after the emblem of the house of Vacheron Constantin; the Maltese Cross. Each sophisticated Vacheron Constantin Malte shows technical craftsmanship and contemporary design that pushes the boundaries of watchmaking.
