Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Watch Collection Hands-On




Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Collection Hands-On Hands-On


Do you know what the new-for-2018 Vacheron Constantin FiftySix collection is based on? Come on, have an educated guess! Nothing? Anything? Well, it is the “modern interpretation of the iconic reference 6073, launched in 1956 and inspired by the Maltese cross.” Good thing I already took my pills prescribed for the nervous twitch I had recently developed for the i-word.

Now, first things first, I know I have gone on a rant about the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris here, but it is only now, weeks after I have written this draft while coming back for another look that I realize the resemblance between the two watches, as well as my reaction to them – this, I presume, simply couldn’t have dawned on me during the remarkably busy weeks during and after SIHH. Now, this being said, as we shall see below, the two watches very much belong to the same trend, but one (this one) makes a notably better effort at it… And with that, let us now discover the many shades of vintage laziness.
