Introducing the Historiques 1955 Cornes de Vache in Rose Gold

I already loved the  platinum but the RG model is to die for!

from the press release


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 pink gold, in keeping with the spirit of the era that sparked its creation. Combining tradition, disruptive design and absolute technical sophistication, the Historiques Cornes de vache 1955 chronograph – named after its evocatively shaped lugs – embodies a stylistic originality typical of Vacheron Constantin.
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 38.5 mm-diameter case that is water-resistant to 30 metres. 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.

I thought the Pt. version was my favorite until this and the Pt. 1921 showed up today.

i like this RG version because it looks even more like the original CdV in YG, and the color contrasts make it more legible to my aging eyes.

Dear Alex,

I remember when you and Dan showed me this watch, well, it's 6 months so far and I still can't take it off of my mind.

This is Vacheron Constantin! heartheartheart


Gorgeous. I think I like this more than the Pt version. This is perfection.
