Launched in 2018 at London’s Abbey Road Studios (originally made famous by the Beatles), in the company of Benjamin Clementine, one of the talents personifying the collection in the new Vacheron Constantin communication campaign, Fiftysix is revisiting the codes of a much-admired 1956 model.

The models unveiled to date are now joined by a version featuring a petrol blue dial specifically developed for this collection. The epitome of relaxed elegance, this shade lends a noble touch to the masculine wardrobe, and will now attire the dials of the Fiftysix self-winding (not shown here) and Fiftysix complete calendar models.

Fiftysix Complete Calendar

Equipped with a self-winding movement, the Fiftysix complete calendar watch displays the date, day and month as well as a precision moon-phase indication offering 122 years of accuracy. Calibre 2460 also features a stop-seconds system.

The sector-type dial composes an extremely legible face, punctuated by a chapter ring with Arabic numerals, the watch is graced with opaline, sunburst and snailed finishing adorning the center with an opaline center and sunburst rim. The Maltese cross also appears on the integrated crown and dial, as well as on the new 22K pink gold oscillating weight, and even more discreetly in the lug design.

In keeping with the era, the Fiftysix is self-winding. Its movement visible through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback is equipped with a stop-seconds device enabling extremely accurate time-setting. In terms of the exterior, the baton-type hands and white gold hour-markers coated with Super-LumiNova® make a perfect match with the 40 mm-diameter stainless steel case.

One distinctive final detail is the box-type crystal topping the bezel and preserving the intrinsically retro-contemporary style of the Fiftysix collection.
