Many Vacheron Constantin desigs from the 1950s were wild, creative, audacious and anything but tame. Often inspired by the American automobile designs of that period, the lines of the watches were fluid and taught. Just think of the Cioccolatone.
I recently spent some tome with the Ref 4695 also called Cornucopia thanks to the shape of its lugs.
The watch may seem small with a 24mm x 24mm case but with the large unusual lugs the visuzal im^pression is that of a much larger watch.
Beating withing is VC's 458/3B
