Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Tourbillon

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Tourbillon – a major horological complication in the collection

In January, at the SIHH 2018, Vacheron Constantin launched its Fiftysix-collection. Clearly inspired by the 1950s and positioned to attract a new and younger clientele. The look and style of the Fiftysix is a direct tribute to the reference 6073, a wristwatch created in 1956. 

The Fiftysix-collection with so far a Self-winding, a Day-Date and a Complete Calendar model is now extended with the first major horological complication.

Let us together have a look at the¬†Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Tourbillon …
