SIHH 2018: The Vacheron Constantin FIFTYSIX collection

Vacheron Constantin, founded in 1755, Geneva’s oldest watch Manufacture, is heralding a new chapter in its history with its FIFTYSIX collection. 

FIFTYSIX …¬†Modern interpretation of the iconic reference 6073, launched in 1956 and inspired by the Maltese cross¬†

FIFTYSIX represents an important new step as this original line, inspired by a historical Vacheron Constantin watch dating from 1956.   

FIFTYSIX …¬†The golden age of round timepieces, the 1950s represented the pinnacle of aesthetic refinement and remain an incomparable territory begging to be explored.

FIFTYSIX …¬†There is a definite sense of kinship ‚Äď in spirit as well as in substance ‚Äď between the 6073 model presented in 1956 and its interpretation in¬†2018.

FIFTYSIX …¬†For the first time in its history, Vacheron Constantin¬†has decided to offer a classic collection both in gold and in steel, while treating the latter material according to the same high aesthetic standards as the precious metal. ¬†

FIFTYSIX … The¬†collection presented at the SIHH 2018 comprises three 40 mm diameter models –¬†Date /¬†Day of the week, date, power-reserve indicator /¬†Complete calendar with precision moon phase –¬†available in various steel or gold versions.
