    Embodying a singular blend of creative boldness and rigorous technical standards, this classic watch fitted with its distinctive 'cow horn' lugs is inspired by the first water-resistant chronograph designed by Vacheron Constantin in 1955. As one of the three references most sought-after by collectors, the vintage icon born amid the effervescence of the post-war period is reinterpreted here in rose gold, in keeping with the spirit of the era that sparked its creation.

    Equipped with a column wheel shaped like a Maltese cross, the emblem of the manufacture, caliber 1142 powering the Historiques Cornes de vache 1955 drives the hours, minutes, small seconds and chronograph functions while ensuring a 48-hour power reserve. This entirely hand-decorated manual-winding movement is revealed through the transparent back of the 38.5mm case that is water-resistant to 30 meters. The model's silvered opaline dial is punctuated by applied numerals and hour-markers swept over by slender gold hands. The deep blue direct-drive seconds hand, 30-minute counter hand and tachymetric scale enhance the optimal legibility of this complex yet airy display.
