Vacheron Constatin “HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921” The new Historiques American 1921 is inspired by an avant-garde cushion-shaped wristwatch featuring a crown at one o’clock and produced in very limited numbers by the Geneva-based manufacture specifically for the American market during the Roaring Twenties.
Respecting the spirit of that era, Vacheron Constantin has once again returned to basics by combining creativity and historical accuracy. The new Historiques American 1921, therefore, pays homage to the bold style of the 1920’s.
Classically inspired, elegant, unpretentious but original, and a real dandy of a watch, this model features a case that is faithful to the original and still cushion-shaped, but now crafted in 18K pink gold and with a diameter of 40 mm. Its most distinguishing characteristic is the diagonal reading of the time, with the crown positioned at one o’clock like the original model. (courtesy The watch Quote)
