In the field of top watchmaking, sports watches have always been scarce, which is no wonder, because in watchmaking history, top watchmaking often symbolizes wealth, art and status, and more precious metals , Precious stones, enamel and other precious materials, so when the emergence of luxury sports watches in the late last century, broke this inherent concept, although it has been questioned, but also ushered in a strong wave in the new era, they began to be increasingly More and more people are welcome. The Vacheron Constantin series was officially launched in 1996. In 2016, in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series, Vacheron Constantin significantly modified the series, thereby rejuvenating the series. This horizontal and vertical series chronograph watch is one of the most representative models. Besides the 4500V, it is also the most popular horizontal and vertical series watch. In the recently opened Vacheron Constantin Beijing Wangfu Zhonghuan store, we saw this watch deity. I like the weight of the watch, the blue dial, and the exquisite workmanship of the movement and the 22K gold rotor. That sense of luxury.
There are several reasons for all the popularity of this watch. First of all, the top-level sports watch itself is relatively limited in selectability, and there are only a handful of representative ones. Secondly, as an ancient watch brand with a history of more than 260 years, Vacheron Constantin itself has a lot of fans. The brand has rich heritage, high brand level and is widely recognized. Third, the vertical and horizontal series has been redesigned to incorporate a more gentlemanlike feel under the resolute appearance. The case, bezel and bracelet all weaken the pure sporty elements, and the design is more in line with the needs and aesthetics of high-end consumers . Fourth, almost all the vertical and horizontal directions in the past are dense. After adding the newly designed movement, it has become completely transparent, and the appreciation is greatly enhanced, which is naturally more sought after. Fifth, the use of stainless steel, the price will not be so high, in the same type of watches, it has a very good competitiveness.
Compared to the simplicity of 4500V, the 5500V watch has a chronograph function and uses the self-winding chronograph movement 5200 independently developed by Vacheron Constantin, thereby increasing the overall value. Because of this, although it is 50 times more expensive than earlier vertical and horizontal chronograph models %, But far more popular than earlier versions. The classic three-eye dial layout is simple and clear. The hands and scales are filled with luminous coating. The blue dial is both gentleman and dynamic. Everything looks just right. The stainless steel bracelet feels good and is comfortable to wear. The watch diameter is 42.5 mm, which is slightly larger for men with small wrists. After all, it has to carry many elements.
Built-in 5200 self-winding chronograph movement independently developed by Vacheron Constantin, with the Geneva mark. A major feature of the new movement is the rose compass-shaped 22K gold automatic oscillating weight. In addition to its beautiful appearance, 22K gold also reflects its higher value. The movement is carefully polished, Geneva ripples and plywood chamfers, and some of the originals are polished carefully. These details make the movement so pleasing. Because of this, the 5200 movement has both performance and aesthetics and is very popular.
At the same time, in Vacheron Constantin’s Beijing Wangfu Zhonghuan store, there are also gold models available. The Spring Festival is approaching. Do you have a good year-end gift?
