LIFE THROUGH BLUE-COLORED GLASSES
Combining the useful with the pleasant—this is the Geneva manufacturer’s mission with this model dressed in this year’s standout color, blue. Balanced composition and readability await.
The last of the Vacheron Constantin collections, FiftySix is filling out this year with new references. What do they have in common? All have a sublime petroleum blue dial with an opaline finish in the center and a sunny periphery! On the FiftySix Calendrier Complet presented at the last Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, the date is read off with a central hand, the day and the month in their respective windows. In an indicator housed at 6 o’clock, the Moon phases are displayed accurately for 122 years without needing correction. The hour and minute hands, enhanced with luminescent material, point to white gold hour markers and Arabic numerals. Everything is then topped by a “box”-type glass that lends the timepiece a vintage touch.
