Introducing the Historiques Chronographe de Souscription exclusive for The Hour Lounge

To celebreate the passion of our amators and collectors who convey the brand's spirit worldwide, Vacheron Constantin decided to introduce a new Les Historiques model for The Hour Lounge.

The reinterpretation of the legendary chronograph 4178 was chosen for its elegance, its personnality and the passion it brings to our enthusiasts. This was already done in the 90s on the Vacheron 47101 and 47111, references praised by collectors. This tradition is followed today with a new chronograph in a combination of steel and pink gold, symbolizing gentlemen simplicity and warm freindship, values shared by Vacheron Constantin and Loungers.

Its distinguished lugs, its large bezel and the curved shape of its emphasies elegance, as does the size of 37mm.

To underline refinement, a deep black lacquered dial is printed with two different inks; a white gold powder for the 60 seconds indication at 9 o'clock matching cabochons and stylized 6 and 12 indexes, and a pink gold powder for the chronograph indicaitons, central second counter, 45 minutes counter at  3 o'clock and pulsation scale.

It will be equipped by the new 3300 monopusher caliber, with column wheel; lateral clutch and "all or nothing" specific system. Its gentle winding feeling will reach the expectation of our demanding collectors.

This very special timepieces comes on a specific bordeaux leather stichtless strap.

The Chronographe de Souscription will be exclusively available to loungers under subscription via The Hour Lounge interface. Subscription will open on April the 1st 2015 , please contact our community and social media manager Alex Ghotbi at this occasion.

Nice fantasy heart.  The two-tone case is definately something that should be brought back for Les Historiques.  The classic chronograph is something we have been holding our breath for and I would be happy with either monopusher or two yes.  Perhaps your wish will become reality in the not-to-distant future, except the subscription part (although for a new Chronometre Royal it would be most appropriate).  But that can be managed with discrete contributions into a sock kept under the mattress.

If I may share this watch that your design brought back with fond memories:

Love It !!

Obviously it's your ex watch that inspired the the design wink , as some marketing release for the text cheeky

I recall the surprise discovering it. At that time I didn't like two tone cases, it was a no-go. It remains true for 99% of watches I see, two tone case are just not my cup of tea. But on the 4178 it's the opposite, it tops everything, in a chronograph with fancy lugs I craaaave for that combination! I'm sure you have enjoyed every single moment with that gem.

The subscription can be interesting if used in a very limited number of occasion, for THL I think it could make sense. And it was an argument to release a watch without real photos in this fantasy devil

Happy to see you enjoyed it, have a nice week end  smiley

Stop by the VC Museum in Geneva. The chronos on display are knock outs.  I was there two weeks ago and was mesmerized
