Vacheron Constantin 56 Seconds to Fiftysix (2)
In the second episode of the series, Christian Selmoni, Vacheron Constantin Style & Heritage Director, talks about what inspired the watch.
Fiftysix, a name and a date evoking an iconic model presented in 1956. The golden age of round timepieces, the 1950s represented the pinnacle of aesthetic refinement.
This timepiece is distinguished by its shape – and notably its lugs, each representing a branch of the Maltese cross which has become an emblem of the Manufacture. For the first time in its history, the Maison has decided to offer a classic collection both in gold and in steel.
It is by reinterpreting its own roots that the Fiftysix collection achieves a distinctive style by adopting a crown recessed into the case, thereby setting it apart from its 1956 predecessor, which took a more classic approach.
An exploration of the history of Vacheron Constantin is a voyage of discovery, revealing the excellence of age-old watchmaking. Each timepiece is the result of the creative inspiration of the watchmaker or craftsman, dedicating their knowhow to the birth of outstanding watches. The Manufacture also works within a social and environmental code of ethics, and has had Responsible Jewellery Council certification since 2012.Find out more >
