Testifying to Vacheron Constantin's ancestral expertise in the making of ultra-thin watches, the Historiques Ultra-Fine 1955 model is powered by the mechanical manual-winding Vacheron Constantin caliber 1003, presented in 1955. In its exclusive new interpretation, this pure, restrained timepiece accommodates its legendary movement inside a round 36mm case made of platinum. A micromechanical masterpiece comprising 117 components and yet measuring a mere 1.64 mm thick, it reveals its 18K gold bridges and plate adorned with exceptional hand-crafted finishes through the sapphire crystal back of the case that is water-resistant to 30 meters.
This classic watch with its 31-hour autonomy is one of the thinnest in the world, at just 4.13mm thick. Its hours and minutes functions are displayed on a silvered opaline dial featuring a pure, minimalist style and bearing gold baton-type hands and painted blue hour-markers matching the dark shade of the strap with its platinum buckle. A slender bezel, distinctive lugs and a resolutely uncluttered dial display compose the refined personality of this timeless model.
