Vacheron Constantin HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921 👏 quick review💥

Jul 04, 2022,14:48 PM

I have just received by Vacheron Constantin HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921 and wow 👏💥 what a watch.

I tried the than Rose Gold Hitoriques in 2015 and even the New York Limited Edition but, for a reason or another, I didn't go for it. My brother got the RG and while browsing I learned more about the White Gold version released last year.

My understanding that these are pretty difficult to get now but, with a bit of luck I found one at my AD available now. So here it is in all its beauty:

If you have many watches the HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921still has its place because is unlike anything else. I am not a big driver but I am the dial orientation is perfect also at the computer 😁 but I probably will need a few days to get used to this new way of checking the time

The monochrome colors make it very discreet but not boring also thanks to the Serapian strap that is excellent and very comfortable 

At 7,4 mm is a perfect dress watch but very versatile I would say, specially on this strap

Thre movement Caliber  4400 AS offers a good power reserve of 65 hours 

Super happy and excited about this acquisition..perhaps it was destiny for me to wait the White Gold Version ! 
Thanks for watching

thank you! was inspired by your pics and advice in the other topic 👏

was really nice to see both the LF and the VP in live pics. If I will go for the LF in the future will also be the classic but so far am super happy with the VC!

Congratulations on this beautiful 1921!

So I see you solved your VC vs LF dilemma pretty quickly. And with great success, I must add. Enjoy!

yes really :) the LF option for me was only the Ecole so after gatheting some

Dear Christian, Many thanks for the beautiful pictures and the review. This is one watch which also interests me quite a bit - and I’m thinking more and more of pulling the trigger on it! Did you try both sizes and which one did you select? The cushion/sq... 

Hi Jerome Thank you 👏

 By: christianch : July 4th, 2022-16:49
I went for the 40mm that doesn't wear big at all. It is true that square/cushion watches wear bigger but not this one becaue of the height being just 7.4mm. It wears much smaller than a Panerai 42mm as a comparison. I think it is very versatile in terms o...

Thanks for detailed reply, agreed that it is quite unique, and the thinness and Geneva seal are additional value for sure. Also agree that certainly many a strap would fit it very well. Something to look at in more details during the next visit to the bou...

I’ve had my eye on this for a while. I like asymmetric watches ...  

The best.

Immaculate choice . Thank you very much for the pretty pictures, I am likewise just waiting for the right moment in time to purchase one myself - in that exact configuration . Cheers, Filip

Absolutely magnificent! And well captured!

I've seen a lot of pictures of this VC (of course) but never before have I notised that the small seconds isn't angled like the rest of the dial, but vertical in the "normal" way. Can't believed I missed that! ☺️

Huge congrats!!

Ah the 1921..

Becoming quintessential representation of VC. I have pined for one for awhile. The not wearing dressy watches much plus different orientations of the time and seconds dials has given me pause. That being said about once a month I try to convince myself I ... 

😁haha the orientation might get a bit to get used too

 By: christianch : July 4th, 2022-21:27
day one so I can't tell but so far is great. I am always wearing a suit or a blazer so fits very well or me. Execution etc. is TOP. 11/10

Perfect choice and congratulations

Great wrist shots. Liked 1st and last ones. Now you just need to go behind steering wheel to feel the time. Enjoy the beauty. Cheers ! Gautam

thank you Gautam ! pics would be nicer but they do get reduced in size... truth to be told I don't drive 🏎😁

 By: christianch : July 4th, 2022-21:29
but I am always at the computer so it still helps to read it !

Thank you Patrick :)

Congratulations on your purchase of an excellent (albeit quirky) timepiece. You won’t regret it !

 By: Ping.Timeout : July 5th, 2022-00:27
Fyi, i had to wait for 6 mths to get mine, but well worth the wait in the end. Am waiting for my custom strap to arrive - to see how it looks.

oh 6 months not so quick but for today's standards not so long did it take to get used to the dial ? 😁

 By: christianch : July 5th, 2022-08:19
I saw your notification via email and initially I misread that it took you 6 months to get used to it ! I love the OEM strap ..fits very well

Indeed it’s special and functional.

 By: Ping.Timeout : July 6th, 2022-09:50
I also learned that it prevents water from getting in through the crown when caught in a rain if worn on left wrist. Definitely unique like no other. Loving it.

A wonderful and timeless acquisition!

Many congrats for this superb piece. For me your WG version is the most desirable one. Wear it in best health ☺️ Thomas
