Vacheron Constantin Historique

This year’s novelties at SIHH 2010 finally made it to our shores. I attended an evening hosted by Vacheron Constantin…great food, wonderful company, and of course, fine watches.

The Historique Ultra-Fine 1968 in a square case, and the Historique Ultra-fine 1955 in the round case.

The watches are truly thin, the 1956’s hand wound movement is only 1.64mm thick, and the automatic 1968 movement is a slim 2.45mm height. The case thickness is 4.1mm and 5.5mm respectively…as can be seen from the side pictures below

A closer view of the Ultra Slim Historique 1968 is equipped with an ultra thin automatic movement, but as the case back is solid, remains unseen. I love the proportions of the case and the super elegant, simple, clean dial design:

And the Ultra Slim Historique 1955 is in an elegant round case…

And features a hand wound movement:

The evening was also graced with a beautiful pianist playing classic jazz:

And the watches were modelled by dancers, who came out dancing ballet, of course…in line with the elegance of the watches, the chosen artform is of a similar genre:

Watch out for the restaurant review in my food blog soon. The event was held in one of the premier modern French restaurants in town…the Au Petit Salut.
