Vacheron Constantin Historiques Aronde 1954 Watch - Boldness and Creativity

Jan 24, 2011
The Vacheron Constantin Historiques collection, reflecting the brand’s rich heritage and symbolizing its spirit and know-how, welcomes a new member - the Aronde 1954 watch. It was created on the base of the model introduced by the brand in the post-war years. The model will be available in a limited edition.

Representing a successful union of boldness and creativity, the vintage-spirit timepiece catches the glance by its original rectangular case. The hand-guilloche dial of the watch pays tribute to the Metiers d’Art, the artistic crafts cherished by the brand.

The 31.2 x 44. 55 mm rectangular case of the Historiques Aronde 1954 watch is sculptured in pink gold. It demonstrates alternating polished and brushed surfaces. “Aronde” is an Old French word for wings of a swallow. This name of the watch was suggested by the signature double-rounded curve unfurling along the case flanks like wings. This original detail is accentuated by a distinctively cambered sapphire crystal.

The refined opaline silvered dial is adorned with a hand-guilloche motif. It is completed with applied gold numerals, hour-markers and Maltese Cross symbol.

The new Vacheron Constantin watch is equipped with an in-house mechanical hand-wound movement - Calibre 1400 AS. Operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 20-jewel movement offers a 40-hour power reserve. It animates the hours, minute, small seconds presented via a rectangular counter at 6 o’clock. The precision of the movement is crowned with the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.
The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.

The Vacheron Constantin Historiques Aronde 1954 watch is coupled with a brown stitched-tip, large square-scaled alligator strap fitted with a buckle in pink gold.
