Vacheron Constantin’s taken on a troublesome errand in launching the FiftySix, a line of watches that intends to be historically propelled and present day at the same time. As it’s name proposes, this new line is explicitly propelled by a watch that launched in the year 1956, the reference 6073. This occasionally disregarded historical model had pleasantly incorporated hauls and was among the principal Vacheron Constantin watches to come with a programmed development. Here, we see the new FiftySix executed as a handsome programmed complete schedule watch accessible in either gold or hardened steel, though there are three-hand programmed and day-date forms as well.
The Other VC Complete Calendars
Just a couple of months prior in October, Vacheron Constantin discharges a couple (or group of four, contingent upon how you need to check) of vintage-enlivened complete schedules, the Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 and 1948. The FiftySix Complete Calendar, however, utilizes an alternate development and has altogether different styling.
You can get all the subtleties on the two Historiques models here.
Why This Watch Matters
After the generally late innovation of the yearly schedule exactly 22 years prior, the complete schedule, which had since quite a while ago appreciated notoriety, saw its status fade. However, as cheaper perpetuals and annuals hit the market, a portion of their brilliance is starting to blur, and we’re seeing a restored revenue in a very much made, finely finished, and thoughtfully planned complete calendar. That this one is ensured with the Geneva Seal and is controlled by a phenomenal in-house development is what tops off an already good thing/p>
The FiftySix does surely figure out how to review the 6073 while at the same time giving off an impression of being the most contemporary case shape in current creation at Vacheron. The steel variant with silver dial and blue moon phase has an extraordinary potential for success of interfacing with more youthful watch authorities who may need a complicated schedule watch, however aren’t exactly prepared for a ceaseless calendar.
