Launched in 2018, Vacheron Constantin's FiftySix collection draws upon the codes of an iconic 1956 model. This year, the series is joined by two models with featuring a petrol blue dial (developed specifically for FiftySix).
Epitomizing relaxed elegance, this particular blue shade lends a touch of nobility, dressing the dials of the FiftySix self-winding and Fiftysix complete calendar models.
Equipped with a self-winding (automatic) movement, the Fiftysix complete calendar watch displays the date, day and month as well as a precision moon-phase indication, requiring no adjustment over 122 years. Calibre 2460 also features a stop-seconds system which allows for accurate time-setting down to the second.
The sector-type dial features a chapter ring with Arabic numerals – a fairly rare occurrence at Vacheron Constantin – and is adorned with opaline, sunburst and snailed finishing.
The subtly omnipresent Maltese cross also appears on the integrated crown and dial, as well as on the new 22K pink gold oscillating weight, as well as discreetly in the lug design.
This Fiftysix self-winding showcases its movement, visible through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback, and is also equipped with a stop-seconds system.
Baton-type hands and white gold hour-markers coated with Super-LumiNova® stand out on the 40 mm diameter stainless steel case. A box-type crystal tops the bezel, a nod to the intrinsically retro-contemporary style of the Fiftysix collection.
