Vacheron Constantin is one of the oldest, wisest and most respected names in the business. No other brand has lasted as long as this, and many watchmakers cannot claim the same level of haute horlogerie. Today, we will explore a collection of watches created to provide a new entry point into the mystery of this extraordinary watchmaker. Join us as we showcase the Vacheron Constantin FiftySix collection in this exhaustive and insightful review.
Most young people with a growing appreciation for fine watchmaking can appreciate the richness of a watch from a brand like replica Vacheron Constantin . As one of the “big three” watchmakers, it represents a certain status and reflects a level of achievement in owning a collection.
For most watch lovers, the price of any Vacheron Constantin watch, even an entry-level watch like the Patrimony, will be considered more expensive than most other brands. However, it seems that the directors of Vacheron Constantin have decided to open a small door that will allow more people to enter what would otherwise be a very exclusive club.
This is the only collection that uses a mixture of numerals and hour markers.
This contemporary vintage timepiece has a classic look that combines a smooth, polished and elegant case with lugs with gentle curves. The design has two distinct chapter rings, one on the inner dial and the other around it, and both feature railroad-style minute and seconds tracks. A small single-disc date window is comfortably positioned at 3 o’clock.
The finely polished sun dial radiates outwards from the inner chapter ring to the ribbed seconds outer ring on the dial. This leaves a frosted, scalloped dial in the center. Polished numerals are used at the 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 o’clock positions, with illuminated hour markers in the centre. The illuminated pencil-shaped hands are made of polished white gold, making this stainless steel watch even more attractive.
Although there are many watches with a higher degree of complexity in the collection, for now we will focus on entry-level models, such as the reference number 4600e / 000a-b487, which has a beautiful blue dial. This model comes with a matching blue alligator leather strap and a push-button deployment (folding) buckle. The buckle is designed to look like one half of a coat-of-arms Maltese cross, the same cross used by replica Vacheron Constantin in its logo on the upper part of the scalloped dial.
