Vacheron Constantin presents its new FIFTYSIX® collection
Offering the keys to modern elegance and relaxed refinement. Imagining a collection with a cosmopolitan style that is both contemporary and historically inspired. Such is the personality of the FIFTYSIX® collection unveiled at the SIHH 2018. Geneva’s oldest watch Manufacture still in operation, 263 years after its creation in 1755, Vacheron Constantin holds a special place in the heart of initiates and collectors. The Maison is heralding a new chapter in its history with its FIFTYSIX® collection. It represents an important new step as this original line, inspired by a historical Vacheron Constantin watch dating from 1956, instils a modern momentum capable of opening up the world of Fine Watchmaking to every enthusiasts.
Inspiration and creativity
FIFTYSIX®. A name and a date evoking an iconic model presented in 1956: the reference 6073. Through its typical design expressing the particularly abundant creativity displayed by Vacheron Constantin during that period, this timepiece is distinguished by its shapes – and
notably its lugs, each representing a branch of the Maltese cross that has become an emblem of the Manufacture.
The originality of reference 6073, as indeed of all 1950s Vacheron Constantin models, also stems from the contrast between the classicism of its dial and the bold design of its case. A watch that already wove ties between respect for tradition and a taste for innovation.
