Game Changers: Cory Richards

"The greatest form of technology, the greatest form of expression and design, is having only what you need—nothing more and nothing less—in its most elegant form." For his third attempt at climbing Everest, photographer Cory Richards partnered with Vacheron Constantin to create a watch that could sustain the magnitude of his undertaking. In support of our upcoming Game Changers watch auction in New York, he visited our headquarters to reflect on the impact of his journey.
