A novelty of this summer season is the beautiful American in a new suit. Crafted in precious platinum, the Historiques American 1921 is inspired by an original cushion shaped model from the 1920s. This contemporary reinterpretation of an icon from the Roaring Twenties remains loyal to the original version in every way. A crown placed between 1 and 2 o’clock was created by Vacheron Constantin for the American market.The classic yet original finely grained silvered dial bears 12 blue painted Arabic numerals and blued Breguet-type hands.
Fitted with a lightly domed crystal, the 40 mm-diameter case, houses Vacheron Constantin manual-winding Caliber 4400 AS. This movement has a particularly hand-crafted finishing.
The restrained and timeless elegance of this ‘dandy chic’ American 1921 watch is complemented by a dark blue alligator leather strap fitted with a platinum buckle.
