Introducing the Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Day-Date Petrol Blue Dial Limited Edition for Mr Porter
Vacheron Constantin introduces the 13th watch in its prestigious Fiftysix collection, being the 3rd model of the Fiftysix Day-Date variant that first arrived in the collection in 2018 through the two existing models.
The Fiftysix collection was created based on its historic model 6073 in the 50s, more precisely in 1956, the fruit of Maison’s creativity and soon distinguished itself as an elegant, thin and round piece whose lugs represent each part of the Cross of Malta which is also today a symbol of the brand. The model 6073 was one of the first watches to appear with manufactured automatic movement.
The new model now launched appears as a limited edition of 30 numbered pieces exclusive to Mr Porter. Mr Porter created in 2011 is an online store that sells luxury men’s clothing and accessories and also produces digital and print content based on lifestyle.
The Fiftysix Day-Date Petrol Blue Dial is a contemporary watch with useful complications to the day-to-day and destined to a chic urban young style. Its main feature is based on the same characteristics of the other two existing variants, a 40mm stainless steel case, Arabic hours and luminescent baton indexes, a day week subdial at 9 o’clock and also a date subdial at 3 o’clock, a power reserve at 6 o’clock, luminous baton hands and a second central hand. The watch is powered by the automatic In-house movement 2475 SC / 2, which offers 40 hours of power reserve. The movement is possible to be observed through the sapphire glass of the case back where it is possible to observe the amazing manufacture work where you can see the skeletonized oscillating mass in gold that adds the Malta Cross. This new model also features a petroleum blue dial with three different finishes, opaline, sunrays and a concentric spiral from the centre to the outside, with polished applied details that match with the polished stainless-steel case, the watch comes with a matte brown calfskin strap.
The watch is available exclusively on the Mr Porter website and can be purchased for the price of € 18,100, that is, exactly the same price as the other steel variant.
