The Historiques collection, dedicated to Vacheron Constantin’s creative archetypes, highlights the wealth of the technical and aesthetic heritage of the Manufacture through contemporary reinterpretations. New models are now reviving three icons much sought- after among collectors. Inspired by a legendary 1955 chronograph, the Cornes de vache 1955 model is interpreted in pink gold, while the emblematic cushion-shaped American 1921 and the remarkable Ultra-fine 1955 with its 1.64 mm-thin gold caliber appears clothed in platinum. These models bearing the Hallmark of Geneva and issued in highly exclusive production runs are enriching an exceptional collection dedicated to connoisseurs and devotees of vintage watches.

Cornes de vache 1955, American 1921 and Ultra-fine 1955. Three legendary models much coveted by collectors are now reborn arrayed in new finery within the Vacheron Constantin Historiques collection. These pink gold or platinum modern reinterpretations of legendary models give new life to the iconic creations punctuating the history of the Geneva-based Manufacture since 1755.

Historiques American 1921

Crafted in precious platinum, the Historiques American 1921 is inspired by an original cushion- shaped model with a crown placed between 1 and 2 o’clock, created by Vacheron Constantin in the 1920s for the American market. Combining the daring style characterising the era of its birth and the rigorous technical standards of a Fine Watchmaking creation, this contemporary reinterpretation of an icon from the Roaring Twenties remains loyal to the original version through an imposing cambered case diagonal time read-off, offset ball-shaped crown and small seconds between 4 and 5 o’clock. The classic yet original 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 water- resistant to 30 metres houses Vacheron Constantin manual-winding Caliber 4400 AS. This movement adorned with particularly finely hand-crafted finishing and endowed with a comfortable 65-hour autonomy drives hours, minutes and small seconds indications. The restrained and timeless elegance of this ‘dandy chic’ watch is complemented by a dark blue alligator leather strap fitted with a platinum buckle.
