Introducing The Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Complete Calendar With Sepia-Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

Introducing The Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Complete Calendar With Sepia-Brown-Toned Dial and Matching Calfskin Strap

Snappy Take

With the dispatch of the FiftySix in 2018, Vacheron Constantin added another round case shape to its present assortment and made an offer to carry more youthful watch darlings to its overlay. All along, FiftySix highlighted both steel and gold alternatives, and after some time, more complications were added. The greater part of the alternatives that I’ve observed to date have struck me as being on the dressier side of the spectrum.

Today, we’re seeing another schedule variant in the developing FixtySix lineup that highlights a warm sepia-earthy colored dial coordinated with an earthy colored calfskin tie and a 18-karat 5N pink-gold case. While not piece of Vacheron’s mainstream Historiques range, the FiftySix was without a doubt propelled by the company’s very unbelievable mid-century watch plan, specifically the ref. 6073 of 1956. The gestures to the mid-’50s are plainly there, yet the FiftySix is likewise beautiful clearly a watch of today. The full schedule model we see here is 40mm in breadth, directly in the sweet spot of wearability for loads of individuals, I think. It is selective to Vacheron Constantin boutiques.

Introductory Thoughts

While the case is gold and the watch has a complete-schedule display, my feeling is that this new reference is really a sort of scaffold between a games watch and a dress watch. The size of 40mm x 11.6mm is especially appropriate for regular wear. 

It’s not difficult to envision going after this gold watch with earthy colored dial on a fresh pre-winter day, an unbiased tone sweater layered on top of a white shirt. I imagine that is somewhat the purpose of this specific interpretation of the FiftySix, which was constantly expected to be somewhat less closed up and less genuine than, for instance, the Traditionnelle (which is likewise offered with a complete schedule), without being an all out games watch like, say, the Overseas. It could be valuable gold, yet on the off chance that my appraisal of what the FiftySix is attempting to be – a sort of scaffold between two universes – is right, at that point I think this model prevails in that attempt.
