Crafted in precious platinum, the Historiques American 1921 is inspired by an original cushion-shaped model with a crown placed between 1 and 2 o'clock, created by Vacheron Constantin in the 1920s for the American market. Combining the daring style characterizing the era of its birth and the rigorous technical standards of a fine watchmaking creation, this contemporary reinterpretation of an icon from the Roaring Twenties remains loyal to the original version through an imposing cambered case diagonal time read-off, offset ball-shaped crown and small
seconds between 4 and 5 o'clock.
The classic yet original finely grained silvered dial bears 12 blue painted Arabic numerals and a black railway-type minute track, swept over by blued Breguet-type hands. Fitted with a lightly domed crystal, the 40mm case water-resistant to 30 meters houses Vacheron Constantin manual-winding Caliber 4400 AS. This movement adorned with particularly finely hand-crafted finishing and endowed with a comfortable 65-hour autonomy drives hours, minutes and small seconds indications. The restrained and timeless elegance of this 'dandy chic' watch is complemented by a dark blue alligator leather strap fitted with a platinum buckle.
