Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watch company in the world, which though being the "living classics", however, always pleases us with new modifications of watch calibers and unexpected design solutions. Perhaps this is the source of its inexhaustible inspiration and the key to sustained success.
Rolex is a world-wide known watch brand with an emblem in the form of a crown, which has long been a symbol of high status. It would be interesting to know that the success of the brand was gained not owing to unique caliber or design, but to the invention of the sealed case, which defended the movement from dust and moisture and had become a new standard of quality. Among the known owners of Rolex watches are Roman Abramovich and Nikita Mikhalkov.
Omega watches are strongly associated with films about James Bond. No matter which actor played the role of the brave secret agent.
