Vacheron Constantin’s New Watch Is Inspired By The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’
The world’s most refined menswear deserves the most refined accessories on the planet. If you agree with that proposition, then you’re going to like what you see from lauded watchmaker Vacheron Constantin: A new watch release available exclusively at MR. PORTER and dreamed up with the inspiration of Abbey Road Studios in mind.
It’s not just any run-of-the-mill release, as you might expect coming from the luxury retailer and a luxury watchmaker. The Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Day-Date Watch continues the Fiftysix Collection, launched in 2018 in partnership with the iconic and legendary studio in a nod to the year that the company created its first water-resistant, self-winding watch.
The latest addition is a showcase of extraordinary craftsmanship, intricacy, and refined design, bundled up in a supremely stylish timepiece for pre-order right now.
In fact, one might say this watch is every bit as carefully crafted as the slew of legendary hits and live performances that have graced Abbey Road Studios through the years.
The visual details on this remarkable watch are almost too good to be true, from the petrol blue dial to the sepia brown calfskin leather strap. It only makes sense, in this instance, that just 30 models are up for grabs (and at an investment-worthy price tag of $17,400).
MR. PORTER says that the watch is “the epitome of casual elegance,” and we’re in complete agreement. The 40mm case diameter is nicely sized for a variety of wrists, and easy to wear with a finely tailored wool winter suit or a classic polo and chinos (go with Sunspel in a further nod to Abbey Road’s British heritage).
Dive even further into the elegant details of this timepiece through the case back, which displays the open-worked 22-carat gold oscillating weight and should delight any watch enthusiast.
For those who love timeless music and timeless style, we can’t think of a more perfect watch than the latest addition to the Fiftysix Collection.
