VACHERON CONSTANTIN – Historiques Cornes de vaches 1955

The name, meaning “cow’s horns”, may raise a smile, but above all it creates a shiver – a shiver of enthusiasm, of excitement and impatience. Because the famous chronograph with the curved horns emblematic of Vacheron Constantin, created in 1955, is a must-have for collectors and fans of vintage watches. The Historiques collection, which celebrates the watch-making heritage of the Geneva-based factory by renovating icons of the past, grows with the Historiques Cornes de vaches 1955. Its 38.50 mm case in 950 platinum houses the hand-wound chronograph calibre 1142 which provides 48 hours of autonomy. On the silver dial, towards the flange, a satin ring features a blue tachymeter scale. The same blue is repeated on the central trotteuse and on the minute totalizer at 3 o’clock. In the centre, two white gold hands show the hours and minutes, while the seconds tick by in a counter at 9 o’clock. Price upon request. Sharmila Bertin
