More on Vacheron Constantin Historiques Watches
Vacheron Constantin Historiques watches pay tribute to some of the watchmaker’s finest moments. By revisiting creative archetypes, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer can honour traditional methods whilst relishing new concepts. The line has been successfully offering luxury watch collectors and devoted Vacheron Constantin fans a place to find a timepiece that is both authentic and modern all rolled into one. One of the most popular models from the Vacheron Constantin Historiques watch collection is the American 1921 timepiece, which features some very distinctive hallmarks. These include a cushion-shaped case and an hour track that is tilted at a 45-degree angle to the right. A small second sub-dial sits at the lower right third of the dial. Interestingly, this feature of the dial has not been tilted and instead remains upright adding to an incredibly unique-looking timepiece. What’s more, the crown on the Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921 watch appears in the upper right section of the case. The watch is also available in rose gold, white gold and platinum.
Another collectable Historiques watch by Vacheron Constantin is the Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955. Although classically elegant, these chronographs have distinct scales and numbers on their dials that enhance straightforward timekeeping and assist with the easy measuring of elapsed time. The sub-dials are located at 3 and 9 o’clock, whilst the design of the case features lugs shaped like a bull’s horns. Others describe these lugs as crab pincers, water droplets or claws, signifying the many ways in which a beautiful Historiques watch can be interpreted.
Vacheron Constantin Historiques watches deserve a category of their own. Crafted from noble materials, the stainless steel variants from this range are considered even rarer and more desirable. The Swiss watch manufacturer’s stringent standards in quality and its zest for extravagance become apparent in the design of these timepieces, which come on a variety of different coloured leather strap designs for added versatility.
Whether in search of a companion to wear on the wrist every day or an investment that marks a milestone in life, Vacheron Constantin Historiques watches remain one of the most unique and stylish timepieces to own from the revered brand. Aside from simple two-handed variants with a small second function and the chronograph iterations from the Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 sub-category, more complex models like the Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 watch are also available to collect. Regardless of the huge choice on offer here at Berry’s Jewellers, Historiques watches from Vacheron Constantin are all manufactured to the same exacting standards. Each one expresses a respect for traditional watchmaking and guarantees a seal of quality and durability, backed by the provenance of a brand that has stood the ultimate test of time.
