Sometimes Less is More – Patek Philippe vs. Vacheron Constantin vs Lange & Söhne
We will compare three classic watches with timeless designs and small seconds. Again, these all hail from well-known brands that have earned their stripes in the watch industry, though each comes with its own unique history. While the watches are quite similar, the question of which watch is the right one for you can be a difficult one to answer. In the end, it will most likely come down to personal preference.
History & Evolution of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas
Casual sports watches that bore a prestigious watch brand on the dial didn’t really exist until about 40+ years ago. However, during the 70s, there were plenty of brands that were all vying to claim they had a timepiece that would not only look good in the office, but also handle the ski slopes and a yachting trip or two during the weekends. Therefor Vacheron Constantin built the ‘222,’ which was intended to mark the brand’s 222th anniversary.
