Video: Vacheron Constantin FIFTYSIX Collection Presented By Christian Selmoni

Live video presentation of the newest collection during SIHH 2018
by Dan-Andrei Kluska on February 7, 2018

During SIHH 2018, Vacheron Constantin launched the FIFTYSIX collection. The name of the collection reminds of the year 1956. That year, the brand launched the Reference 6073. This reference was an example of beauty and creativity signed Vacheron Constantin, and a first self-winding watch – rare for those times. The new collection is desired as a style comeback. Featuring classic dial and a beautiful, expressive case.  The collection encloses three models: the FiftySix Self-Winding, the FiftySix Day-Date and the FiftySix Complete Calendar.  You can read the News Release here. The brand offers, for the first time, the collection in precious metal and steel. We met Cristian Selmoni, the Style and Heritage Director at Vacheron Constantin. He presented to us the FiftySix collection.
