Vacheron Constantin GPHG 2015

The master watchmakers who developed the Reference 57260 watch won the GPHG 2015 Special Jury Prize

The Special Jury Prize is particularly symbolic within the world of Haute Horlogerie in
that it celebrates first and foremost the work of the men behind a timepiece. Considered
“an authentic human adventure” according to Jean-Luc Perrin explains, the eight years
of development required to create the Reference 57260 watch drew upon exceptional
expertise and a determination to push the boundaries of feasibility.

The three Master Watchmakers, Jean-Luc Perrin, Yannick Pintus and Micke Pintus, who have developed many of the most complex Vacheron Constantin timepieces, already won the “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix ten years
ago in 2005 for the Tour de l’Ile, which was at the time the world’s most complicated
watch.

Reference 57260, a one-of-a-kind bespoke creation bearing the Hallmark of Geneva, features 57 horological complications, several of which are unprecedented, including multiple calendars and a double retrograde split-seconds chronograph.

This model was born of the passion for taking on the wildest challenges nurtured by three men who are masters of their art. The research and the competencies developed
during its construction represent the greatest contribution to the evolution of mechanical horology since the 1920s.
