W&W 2020: Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Complete Calendar und Self-Winding in Sepia-Brown

Unveiled in 2018, the FiftySix collection is now extended by two new versions in rose gold, available in a complete calendar and automatic version. Both watches for the first time have a sepia brown-toned dial colour and brown calfskin leather strap.

The FiftySix line is mainly inspired by reference 6073, that was introduced in 1956. It was the very first water-resistant automatic watch ever created by Vacheron Constantin. A new sepia brown-toned dial colour now reinforces the vintage character of this watch. 

FiftySix Complete Calendar

Framed by a 40 mm-diameter 18 carats 5N pink gold case, the sepia brown-toned dial is visually extended by a calfskin leather strap. Punctuated by day, date, month indications – as well as a moon phase requiring no adjustment for 122 years.

The subtle sector-type dial features opaline, sunburst and snailed finishes creating special light effects, setting the stage for 18 carats 5N pink gold moon discs standing out against a blue sky. The 2460 QCL/1 self-winding movement with complete calendar indications is also equipped with a stop-seconds device.

The sapphire caseback reveals traditional Côtes de Genève finishes, swept over by a 22 carats pink gold oscillating weight delicately openworked in a shape inspired by the Maltese cross. This symbol is also evoked in the shape of the lugs and on the notched crown of this watch. Price: 36,100 euros.

FiftySix Self-Winding

The new automatic version is powered by manufacture caliber 1326 with a power reserve of 48 hours. With its new sepia brown-toned dial colour matching the colour of its calfskin strap, the FiftySix self-winding watch is further reinforced by an even more resolutely retro touch. 

Topped by a box-type crystal typical of the 1950s, the sector-type dial is distinguished by the refinement of its opaline, sunburst and snailed finishes. This composition is punctuated by hands and hour-markers enhanced with luminescent material and matching the 40 mm-diameter 18 carats 5N pink gold case. 

On the reverse side, the self-winding movement visible through the sapphire crystal caseback provides a view of the Côtes de Genève decoration, swept over by an openworked 22 carats pink gold oscillating weight whose design is inspired by the Maltese cross. A shape that echoes the Vacheron Constantin emblem and is also evoked in the case lugs and on the crown. Price: 20,000 euros.
