VACHERON CONSTANTIN – AMERICAN 1921
ELEGANCE AND ECCENTRICITY
A never-before-seen diameter; a unique piece. Vacheron Constantin has unveiled a new American 1921 that will win over any watch wearer!
The Historiques collection launched in 2005 with timepieces inspired by past models by Vacheron Constantin. The Genevan brand first unveiled the stylish 40mm cushion-shaped American 1921 in 2009. This year the timepiece is back on centre stage with brand new measurements. This is the first time it has been available with a 36.5mm case to fit everyone. The watch is true to previous versions with a diagonal time display and off-centre crown in a corner of the case at 1.30. As you’d expect from a Vacheron Constantin watch, the American 1921 bears the prestigious Geneva Seal.
The slightly grainy, understated silver dial bears a beautiful layout of Arabic numerals and a minute track painted black with Breguet hands. A small seconds completes the picture to perfection. The rose gold case houses the 4400 AS calibre which provides a comfortable power reserve of up to 65 hours. You can look through the transparent case back to admire the manual-wind movement’s exemplary finish.
In order for both ladies and gentlemen to wear it, the timepiece comes with two alligator straps and a rose gold deployment clasp, one in brown to wear anytime and one in red to glam up a chic or casual outfit.
