FALLING IN LOVE WITH EVERYDAY LIFE AGAIN
In the new FiftySix collection, the Day Date model combines practical complications with an elegant and urban design. Vital in business mode and for evening parties!
Unveiled at the recent Salon de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva in January, the FiftySix automatic is now the gateway into the refined world of Vacheron Constantin. The Day Date is the latest version of this model and displays the day of the week and date on its silver or grey dial. In keeping with the elegant atmosphere of the range, the time information comes alive with the help of two counters in bicompax position. A power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock rounds off the watch, but without unbalancing the aesthetic effect. The collection takes its inspiration from a timepiece made by the brand in the 1950s. The case shape, as well as the hands and the indices – highlighted by white luminescent materials – and the font used for the figures evoke the original design. The dial surface is opaline in the centre and sunburst on the outside, bringing extra light and greater readability to the time data.
The functions on the FiftySix Day Date are driven by a self-winding mechanical movement. The Calibre 2475 SC/2 provides the watch with over 40 hours of power reserve. The stop-second feature is used to precisely set the time.
The watch is housed in a steel or pink gold 40-mm-wide case. Depending on the version, it is worn with a steel strap with a folding clasp or a grey-black alligator leather strap with a tang buckle. This model is certified by the exacting Geneva Seal, a guarantee of quality and reliability.
