Vacheron Fifty Six Day Date Reference 4400E/000A-B437

Vacheron Fifty Six Day Date Reference 4400E/000A-B437 AS a personal preference, I chose a watch with sub-dials instead of double windows. Case 40 30m WR. The case is a little unusual because of the angles. But, I got used to it. The stainless steel case i...

Classy gentleman's watch, I believe it has the geneva seal as well, so some hand-finishing all around.

I'll post the next time I retrieve it from the bank.

Good execution of the dial.

Hope you can post a side view image. I am curious of the thickness relative to the diameter. Yes the strap cross looks overwhelming. But it is easy to replace it with something more subtle. Best Jim

Indeed the Fifty Six is a Design that adds to the Glory of the Vacheron Constantin . It`s a Modern Spirit rather than Historiq one . The Dial In particular is Gorgeous . Enjoy it .

Excellent choice

1921 in platinum is very beautiful.

Good choice!

I agree. Thanks [nt]
