The new Vacheron Constantin collection inspired by the iconic reference 6073 —launched in 1956— is one of our favorite watch releases at the SIHH 2018. Available in stainless steel or 18K 5N pink gold, the three new watches have been very well received by the press community, authorized dealers and our readers. Yesterday, we brought you the live pictures on the new FiftySix Self-Winding here and today, we bring you live pictures of our favorite model among the three new watches that were just released. Yes, we are talking about the FiftySix Day-Date with power reserve indicator. With an extremely well balanced dial thanks to its side-by-side subdials and power reserve indicator at six o'clock, this is without a doubt, a big favorite from Vacheron Constantin.
With a box-type sapphire crystal that rises above the bezel, sector type dial, superluminova on hands and markers and automatic movement, this is the very first time in its history, that Vacheron Constantin is offering a classic collection in stainless steel. Here are the reference numbers for each model: 18K pink gold ref. 4400E/000R-B436 and stainless steel ref. 4400E/000A-B437.
Featuring a 40 mm case in diameter, display case back and delivered on alligator strap —either black or brown depending on the metal— with half Maltese cross shaped pin buckles in their respective metals, this new watch is simply stunning and priced just right.
The sector dial on this new watch is a stunner and it comes with applied 18K gold numerals and markers with superluminova. Vacheron Constantin decided to not cut any corners and the stainless steel model is also equipped with applied markers and numerals in 18K white gold.
As an homage to the automatic movement of the 6073, the Vacheron Constatin FiftySix Day-Date is powered by the Vacheron Constantin calibre 2475SC/2. This movement composed of 264 parts with 27 jewels, provides a power reserve of 40 hours when fully wound. Just like the other two new FiftySix models, the movement is fully visible via the display case back and it features the new 22K openworked rotor bearing a Maltese Cross applique.
On the Wrist & Pricing
On the wrist, the new FiftySix Day-Date wears slightly bigger than its actual size and more like a 41 mm watch. This new FiftySix collection is one that we will talk a lot as it gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
Sticker Price $17,400 USD in Stainless Steel and $32,500 USD in 18K 5N Pink Gold. For more info on Vacheron Constantin click here.
