Although many watch brands have played a role in the history of aviation, only Vacheron Constantin company was present with the Wright brothers on the beach of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on the morning of Thursday December 19, 1903, as they made the first flight in the history of aviation. Initially made in a series of five, one example is now exhibited in the Vacheron & Constantin museum in Geneva.
It has a steel case, enamel dial, red-painted hands, and a long leather strap allowing it to be worn either on the thigh or over a leather jacket. This wristwatch, used for the 59 seconds of that historic flight, changed the course of history. Just a year before its 250th anniversary, Vacheron Constantin unveiled at the SIHH 2004 the new Patrimony - a horological marvel - confirming that its centuries of continuous activity have not in the least dulled the enterprising spirit or dimmed the creative spark of the world's oldest watch manufacturer, in uninterrupted activity ever since its inception.
