Vacheron Constantin: Fiftysix Collection
A name and a date evoking an iconic model by Vacheron Constantin dating from 1956. This modern, elegant and relaxed collection with its resolutely cosmopolitan style expresses its personality through the contrast between the classic dial and the daring case. The latter is notably inspired by the Maltese cross-shaped emblem of the Maison that is also picked up on the openworked pink gold oscillating weight.
The Fiftysix collection is a clear tribute to product 6073, a watchmaking legend. It’s the perfect link between honoring the old and relishing the new. A link that Vacheron Constantin treasures and is now perpetuating the collection that combines modern elegance with casual sophistication. Unmistakable cosmopolitan style with a strong personality, the signature of Fiftysix.
A classic dial, an audacious case, and avant-garde technical components. Model 6073 is the quintessential product of the company’s creativity and watchmaking sophistication in the 1950s. It is still an extraordinary piece in more ways than one. Round, thin, elegant, a timepiece with a unique case where each lug represents part of the Maltese Cross.
Inspired by the design of an age-old component in a mechanical movement mainly used to improve accuracy, the Maltese Cross has become the very symbol of watchmaking excellence. The design of the Fiftysix models is true to form. Their case lugs take their shape from the arms of the Maltese Cross and this exclusive design has special appeal for elite connoisseurs. Crown and dial, choice locations if ever there were, also set the stage for this inherent attribute of Vacheron Constantin in the most tasteful way. And for keeping time, the new oscillating mass specially crafted in 22 carat pink gold for the occasion is a quintessential anthem.
