The problem is a long term value one. One can purchase a used platinum on the street for the same list price as this steel, if not less. It’s tough to consider any new Vacheron given the drastic loss of value after purchase. I would love to own a Cornes de Vache. I just can’t justify it. This coming from a very long term Vacheron customer.

Hands on review of the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de Vache in steel

 
 By: foversta : September 27th, 2019-14:33
I prefer to go straight to the point. There is one detail that I don't like with this new release from Vacheron Constantin, it is the strategy of the brand which surrounds it. In fact, I find it hard to understand why Vacheron Constantin has partnered wit...  

A nice looking Chronograph, that's for sure. But I agree with your points, too expensive ( I thought it was in USD! ), a too small movement, and the precedent of the Hodinkee version...

A detail I like a lot, the maltese cross in the column wheel... Though, a charming chrono, with its pros and cons. Best, Nicolas

Nice review, beautiful pictures. Thanks.

Although I hear where your coming from and can understand your arguments, I’m not quit sure the “justification” argument After all, the theoretical depreciation is, until you sell it, only an unrealized loss and won’t hurt unless you’re planning to divest... 

Gorgeous!

The steel takes such a high polish well. Is the ring in the dial really light blue? It seems like it in some photos and then not in others...

Great review on a stunning piece!

I would love to own one. Unfortunately, at that price point, it would never be a reality! 😢

Thank you for the fantastic review!?

I completely agree with your points , but my hearth is set on the platinum model .

Thank you for this excellent review

I am with you on all accounts. A fantastic watch in any metal, but I also don’t understand VC‘s decision to launch it in steel after the Hodinkee LE. Best, Daniel

Thanks for the review and pics . Great like always

Def a very good looking watch , love the lugs and dial layout a lot . But still a bit to highly priced imo

thanks for the review Fx...i enjoyed reading your perspectives !

i was just wondering how much would it cost us if this very same watch was introduced by other brands - it would be a so wide range, isn't it ? Best, mahesh.,

Interesting perspective..

If you compare it to a T-Shirt for USD 10 from Uniqlo or 300 from Gucci, the range for watches still is much tighter. I fully agree with your point though. It comes down to, what actually defines the price of a watch: the material and work hours, R

One of the best looking Vacheron's IMHO!

Thanks

Thanks for your great comprehensive review. I agree with most of your arguments. Except I don’t see any real issue with the movement being small. As you mentioned it: they worked it well. And indeed if the case would have been bigger it perhaps might have... 

Agreed!

I agree in everything and most of all, on your first point about the unneccesary collaboration with Hodinkee. In addition, I would change the strap to a more fitting dark blue or brown square scaled matte alligator. If one wants something more sporty, I w... 

beautiful

enjoyed reading... I recently had the opportunity to try this on my wrist at a VC boutique alongside the platinum version and must say I had high expectations for this steel release.... but trying them on next to each other I would say the platinum all da... 

Beautiful watch.

Indeed, I would not buy anything “special edition Hodinkee”. Syncophantic behavior is not my forte.
