The luxury watch Vacheron Constantin Historiques Triple calendrier 1942 is the new model with a complete calendar presented by the glorious Swiss manufacturer, with over 260 years of uninterrupted activity behind it. Looking at it one is struck by the elegance of the forms, the result of a stylistic architecture that takes place with a deliberately vintage lexicon, to reinterpret the aesthetics of the iconic timepieces born in the 40s.
This wrist jewelry exalts the mastery of the maison in the realization of “useful” complications with an iconic design. The aesthetic codes of the new creation reflect those of the original model, with a touch of contemporaneity. The 40 mm diameter case, made in the classic Vacheron Constantin style, is characterized by a series of stylistic references at the time, such as the carrure with “triple knurl” and the claw handles.
The luxury watch Historiques Triple calendrier 1942, with high-end finishes, has a 4400 QC caliber and guarantees water resistance up to 30 meters. Its hand-wound mechanical movement, which beats at a frequency of 4 Hz, was developed by Vacheron Constantin to preserve the original spirit of the 40s calendar. The powerful barrel ensures a 65-hour power reserve.
The steel model is inspired by reference 4240, which made its debut in 1942 in the versions in yellow gold, rose gold and steel. True to the original, it can be chosen in different colors for the indications of the calendar, available in burgundy or dark blue, on a two-tone silver dial characteristic of the era. The center with satin-finished soleil and the outer disc punctuated with Arabic numerals contribute to the readability of the functions and accentuate the retro-chic elegance of the timepiece.
