Discover Vacheron Constantin Watch ‘Historiques American 1921’ – 36.5 mm

The watch of dandies and chic female urbanites. The Historiques American 1921 epitomises the boldness of an era and the technical sophistication of a Vacheron Constantin creation.

Reinterpreted in a 36.5 mm diameter, this iconic 1920s model acquires an even more stylish allure. A cushion-shaped case in 18K 5N pink gold, a distinctive diagonal read-off, an off-centred crown between 1 and 2 o’clock: the Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921 – 36.5 mm model continues flaunting its vintage credentials while remaining true to its original aesthetic codes. Classical yet quirky.

For almost 20 years, the Historiques collection has been giving a new lease on life to the icons of Vacheron Constantin’s technical and aesthetic heritage. This range composed of legendary watches revisited with a contemporary twist is produced in modest quantities, implicitly extending a discreet invitation to collectors of rare pieces and vintage watch connoisseurs. Among these creative archetypes is a much sought-after original creation designed in the Roaring Twenties for the American market and accordingly named the American 1921. This avant-garde cushion-shaped watch stands out with its diagonal display and its off-centered crown. A fabled model now offered for the first time in a smaller 36.5 mm size.

Vacheron Constantin Watch ‘Historiques American 1921’ a Bold and Convenient Watch

Reading the time while keeping one’s hands on the steering wheel, or during a speech without having to twist the wrist. Such was the extremely practical historical vocation of this watch with its diagonal read-off, created by Vacheron Constantin in the 1920s for an American client with a passion for cars. This highly distinctive display was achieved by a 45-degree counter-clockwise rotation of the movement, thereby naturally displacing the crown to between 1 and 2 o’clock, and the small seconds display to between 4 and 5 o’clock. The creative boldness of this composition is offset by the understated elegance of the finely grained silver-toned dial with its black painted Arabic numerals and minute track, slender open-tipped hands in black oxidised 18K gold, and a baton-shaped hand on the seconds counter. Elegance and eccentricity on the wrist.

• An original new 36.5 mm diameter that will delight those with the slimmest wrists
• An 18K 5N pink gold case
• Iconic diagonal display and off-centred crown
