Vacheron Constantin 5000H/000R-B059 description
Introduced in 2016, the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 is a pink gold chronograph model with fancy lugs in tear drop / cows horn design. Its design is a contemporary interpretation of the first water-resistant and anti-magnetic chronograph presented by Vacheron Constantin - the 1955 reference 6087, a 35mm chronograph powered by caliber 492, which was made in yellow gold, pink gold and platinum for a total of 36 examples. The 'Cornes de Vache' 1955 in platinum had been available since 2015.
The Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 ref. 5000H/000R-B059 is powered by caliber 1142, which is Vacheron Constantin's interpretation of the Lemania 2310, a movement that also served as the base for Omega's caliber 321 and Patek Philippe's CH 27-70 family.
The case of the Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 measures 38.5mm across, a reasonable update from its source of inspiration. The dial features a silvered opaline center with sun-brushed external zone; the latter featuring the minute track and tachymeter scale. The hour markers are made of 18k rose gold.
Not a limited edition per sé, the ref. 5000H/000R-B059 will be made in a "highly exclusive production run".
