"A hardcover book dedicated to a watch becomes more than a page turner for timepiece connoisseurs. It's a journey back in time with a storied history that is fascinating - even if the reader has no interest in legendary, mechanical time tellers." -Trillionaire Magazine
"[Vacheron Constantin] is so beautifully illustrated. . . . charismatic photographs really make the extensive book pop in a visual sense. . . . All in all, this oeuvre is an excellent investment for anyone interested in history, Vacheron Constantin, horology, or just beautiful objects. And it is an absolute feast for the eyes." -QUILL & PAD MAGAZINE "Saying or thinking that Vacheron Constantin makes watches is like saying Michelangelo was a ceiling painter. . . The photographic images are nothing short of exquisite but one must read and learn what goes on within the workings of these amazing watches. . . Without question this is a book that will be appreciated on so many levels because as anyone who is more than familiar with watches can testify that Vacheron Constantin is the Ferrari of timepieces." -NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
