Vacheron Constantin - Three new models for the Historiques collection

| No comment
Dedicated to connoisseurs and devotees of vintage watches, the Vacheron Constantin Historiques collection highlights the wealth of the technical and aesthetic heritage of the Manufacture through contemporary reinterpretations.

The collections expands with three new models: the Cornes de vache 1955 chronograph model in pink gold, the cushion-shaped American 1921 in platinum and the Ultra-fine 1955 with its 1.64 mm-thin gold calibre also in platinum.

Historiques Cornes de vache 1955

Following the platinum version introduced in 2015, the new model in pink gold is also equipped with the hand-wound manufacture Calibre 1142 characterised by its column wheel shaped like a Maltese cross.

Entirely hand-decorated, the movement is revealed through the transparent back of the 38.5 mm-diameter case that is water-resistant to 30 metres.

The silvered opaline dial is punctuated by applied numerals and hour-markers swept over by slender gold hands. The deep blue direct-drive seconds hand, 30-minute counter hand and tachymetric scale enhance the legibility of the display.

Directly inspired to the first water-resistant chronograph designed by Vacheron Constantin in 1955 and its distinctive 'cow horn' lugs, the Historiques Cornes de vache 1955 in pink gold (ref. 5000H/000R-B059) has a price of Euro 58,600.

Historiques American 1921

Crafted in precious platinum, the Historiques American 1921 is now available in a prestigious platinum version.

Created in the 1920s for the American market, the model is strongly characterised by the cambered cushion-shaped case, the diagonal time read-off and the offset ball-shaped crown.

The finely grained silvered dial bears 12 blue painted Arabic numerals and a black railway-type minute track, swept over by blued Breguet-type hands.

Fitted with a lightly domed crystal, the 40 mm-diameter case is water-resistant to 30 metres and houses the Vacheron Constantin manual-winding Calibre 4400 AS. This movement - adorned with hand-crafted finishing and endowed with a 65-hour autonomy - drives hours, minutes and small seconds indications.

The price of the Historiques American 1921 in platinum (ref. 82035/000P-B168) is Euro 48,000.

Historiques Ultra-fine 1955

The third Historiques model remarks the exceptional expertise of the Geneva watchmaker in the making of ultra-thin watches.

The Historiques Ultra-fine 1955 model is powered by Calibre 1003, a hand-wound movement originally presented in 1955 which beats at 18,000 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of 31 hours.

Comprising 117 components and yet measuring a mere 1.64 mm thick, this movement reveals its gold bridges and plate adorned with hand-crafted finishes through the sapphire crystal back of the case that is water-resistant to 30 metres.

The round 36 mm platinum case is just 4.1 mm thick, one of the thinnest in the world. Its slender bezel frames a minimalist silvered opaline dial with gold baton-type hands and painted blue hour-markers

The Historiques Ultra-fine 1955 (ref. 33155/000P-B169) has retail price of Euro 48,000.

All these models bear the Hallmark of Geneva and are issued in highly exclusive production runs.
