(Pictured above: FIFTYSIX Self-Winding, FIFTYSIX Day-Date, FIFTYSIX Complete Calendar)

The FIFTYSIX® collection is modelled on a distinctive but historical model, the ref. 6073 that dates to 1956. Featuring unusual integrated faceted lugs, along with a screw-down caseback and luminous hands, the ref. 6073 was also one of the first self-winding Vacheron Constantin watches, powered by the cal. P1019 supplied by Jaeger-LeCoultre.

All FIFTYSIX® models share a two-tone dial inspired by vintage “sector” dials, featuring a chapter ring with alternating Arabic numerals and baton markers.

The collection is composed of three models each available in either steel with grey dial or  18 carat rose gold with silver dial. The three models are:

  • FIFTYSIX SELF-WINDING – in steel or 18k rose gold
  • FIFTYSIX DAY-DATE – in steel or 18k rose gold
  • FIFTYSIX COMPLETE CALENDAR – in steel or 18k rose gold
