Quai de L'ile
Quai de L'ile, the world's oldest watchmaker, has christened this series. The name is French and would mean "quay" or "platform" of the island. However, it does not refer to long-distance journeys to sunny islands, but to Vacheron Constantin's original location in Geneva. In this way, he recalls the 260-year history of the company. Although the Vacheron Constantin Quai de L'ile has a very modern appearance, it is a child of this old and proud tradition.
Another unmistakable sign of the Vacheron Constantin Quai de L'ile tradition is the Vacheron Constantin logo, which is placed under the date number 31. It consists of the Maltese cross, registered as the watchmaker's trademark since 1880, and below it the inscription "Vacheron Constantin Geneve". However, Vacheron Constantin does not intend to use this cross to refer to the Order of Malta, the Knights of St John or the island of Malta. The cross is based on the appearance of a wheel previously mounted on the barrel of Vacheron Constantin watches in order to improve their movement. As modern as it looks, the Vacheron Constantin Quai de L'ile does not want its history to be forgotten.
