In 2017, Vacheron Constantin set out to revive their iconic triple calendar wristwatches from the 1940s and decided to base their new release on the iconic and historic reference 4240 (please see the following lot. 43). Introduced at SIHH, the new Vacheron Constantin Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 encased only in stainless steel differs from its predecessors who had most examples produced in yellow gold. An homage to the original model from the 1940s, the new Historiques watch features “clawed” lugs, a gadroon motif case band and a curved sapphire crystal. The design, a mix of modern and vintage styles, is a real pleasure for the eyes. This reference 3110V, heir to the historic triple calendar launched in 1942, has a real retro look. The calendar information (date hand, date and month aperture) is red, while the hour and second hands have a touch of blue. The movement, which offers a power reserve of approximately 65 hours, features exceptional finishing visible through the open work case back. The present Vacheron Constantin Historiques Triple Calendrier wristwatch with red calendar track is offered in remarkable and almost unworn condition, complete with its box and card.
