The Fiftysix collection is expanding with a 30-piece limited edition available exclusively on Mr Porter.
In growing the offering, Vacheron Constantin has incorporated a 40 mm-diameter stainless steel case limited edition piece into the Mr Porter line, framing a petrol blue dial specially developed for the collection and a sepia brown calfskin strap.
In 2018, Vacheron Constantin embarked on a partnership with London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios as part of the collection.
The iconic Studio Two was chosen as the setting in which to unveil the Fiftysix collection, which has since been interpreted in several variations inspired by the Maison’s first water-resistant self-winding watch created in 1956.
Its distinctive features: lugs shaped like a section of Vacheron Constantin’s Maltese cross symbol; a box-type sapphire crystal; a classic case measuring 40 mm in diameter; and a sophisticated sector-type dial.
In 2020, Vacheron Constantin is expanding the Fiftysix collection with a new interpretation, for which the stage has once again been set at Abbey Road Studios to mark its exclusive launch on the MR PORTER platform.
In addition to its deep colour specifically developed for the collection, the sector-type dial is distinguished by the richness of its details.
Three different finishes – opaline, sunburst and snailed, from the centre to the rim – ensure an extremely legible watch face accentuated by elegant light effects.
Arabic numerals, hour-markers and gold hour-minute hands punctuate the dial of this timepiece, whose personality is enhanced by a matt-textured sepia brown calfskin strap with stainless steel folding clasp.
Beneath the case beats self-winding Calibre 2475 SC/2, equipped with a stop-seconds device and driving indications of the day of the week at 9 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock as well as the 40-hour power reserve at 6 o’clock.
