Vacheron Constantin – Historiques Cornes de Vaches 1955 Steel – September 2019 News
Vacheron Constantin – September 2019 News
This are excited to be taking pre-orders for the beautiful new Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de vaches 1955 in steel. We expect availability to be later in 2019.
As part of its Historiques collection, Vacheron Constantin presents a steel version of its emblematic “Cornes de vache” model, the Maison’s first water-resistant chronograph launched in 1955. Immediately recognisable by its distinctive cow horn-like lugs, this model is now one of the most sought-after among collectors. This reissue, aesthetically faithful to the original, is adapted to current watchmaking standards. The diameter of the case, which is water-resistant to 30 metres, has been increased to 38.5 mm.
It now houses manual-winding chronograph Calibre 1142, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour and endowed with a 48-hour power reserve. This movement powers timekeeping functions including small seconds as well as chronograph functions with a central seconds hand and minutes counter appearing on a grey velvet-finish opaline dial, embellished with two snailed counters and a white counter.
The crafting of the strap in patinated dark brown calf leather was entrusted to the traditional Milanese leather goods Maison Serapian, founded in 1928, which has thus undertaken its first collaborative endeavour with Vacheron Constantin.
