First introduced in 2009 replica Vacheron Constantin watches in rose gold, followed by a quiet launch of a yellow gold version for the Chinese market in 2014, the Historiques American 1921 is now available in platinum.

One of the Vacheron Constantin‘s most distinctive timepieces, the 1921 is modelled on a wristwatch from that year designed with the dial angled at 45 degrees from the vertical. This was intended to allow the time to be readable while gripping a steering wheel, hence the “driver’s watch” label.

The modern day 1921 sticks to the unusual design of the vintage original, albeit with a mystifying twist: the seconds sub-dial is aligned with the vertical, so out of sync with the hours and minutes.

The 1921 in platinum has the same look as its rose and sale replica Vacheron Constantin watches yellow gold counterparts, except for a variation in colours. On the platinum version the Breguet numerals are in a striking blue, and matched with blued steel Breguet hands, while the dial is silver-plated with a grained finish.

The case size remains a modest 40mm, though the shape of the watch gives it tremendous presence on the wrist. Inside is the calibre 4400 AS, a hand-wound movement with a 65-hour power reserve. A large movement with a diameter of 28.6mm, the calibre 4400 AS fills up the case nicely, though its layout with two large bridges is somewhat plain.Luxury replica Vacheron Constantin watches online.

Pricing and availability

As gorgeous a watch as it is, the 1921 has always been inexplicably expensive compared to equivalent models with the same movement. That remains true for the new platinum version, which is 30 percent more expensive than the 42mm Patrimony hand-wind in platinum that was just introduced earlier this year.

The Historiques American 1921 in platinum (ref. 82035/000P-B168) is priced at US$44,000 or S$67,800. It will be available at cheap fake Vacheron Constantin watches UK boutiques and authorised retailers around October 2016.

UK Luxury Replica Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Day-Date And Power Reserve Limited Edition For North America

Vacheron Constantin has just announced a new limited edition for North America of its Traditionelle Day-Date and Power Reserve watch. The new version of the VC Day-Date will feature an engine-turned guilloché dial, rather than the white dials found in the current collection pink-gold model and the Collection Excellence Platine platinum model.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Day-Date

Guilloché is a form of engraving done with a so-called rose engine, which is a kind of lathe. The dial is mounted on the lathe, brought into contact with the cutting head, and then rotated by a hand-crank. As the piece to be engraved rotates, a cam moves the cutting head in and out of contact with the dial. You can produce a very wide range of effects by using different cams in series and everything from complicated spiraling patterns to straight-line patterns, to pretty much anything else you can imagine, can be engraved. The amount of pressure exerted by the cutting head is determined manually and operating a rose engine requires considerable training and skill. Most rose engines in use today are many decades old, and maintaining them is an art in itself.Replica Vacheron Constantin watches for sale online.

Real guilloché, like many forms of traditional finish, can be inexpensively duplicated (by stamping, in the case of guilloché) and there’s a lot of imitation guilloché out there, but doing the real thing takes a lot of time and a great deal of skill.

As with the existing Traditionelle Day-Date models, the North America limited edition is powered by Vacheron Constantin caliber 2475. Caliber 2475 is a hand-finished, self-winding movement based on the caliber 2450, which when it debuted in 2006 was the very first automatic movement from cheap replica Vacheron Constantin watches that was designed and produced in-house. Caliber 2475 is a 11 1/2 ligne (26 mm) movement, carrying the Geneva Hallmark, with a 40-hour power reserve and running at 28,800 vph. It was first offered in the Quai de l’Ile line, in 2008, but currently is only found in the Traditionelle models.
