Vacheron Constantin reaches out to fresh generation of watch connoisseurs

Vacheron Constantin is appealing to a new generation of watch connoisseurs with its Fiftysix family of watches that launched at SIHH today.

In a presentation that might have been used to launch a modern speakeasy in Shoreditch, the world’s oldest watch brand unveiled three models in the Fiftysix collection comprising a two hand automatic with date, a day date with power reserve and a complete calendar with moon phase that will only need correcting every 122 years.

The Fiftysix is described as a retro-contemporary style for an elegant masculine watch — a modern interpretation of the reference 6073 launched in 1956 and inspired by the Maltese cross.

The styling is certainly classical, and connoisseurs will appreciate luxurious historic details like each movement’s 22ct pink gold open-worked oscillating weight featuring the Maltese cross emblem.

The entry level self-winder in a 40mm steel case costs around £10,500, so the next generation will need means as well as taste.
