Have you ever heard of a partnership where watchmaking and music mixed well? No? Then you might want to check out the new Swiss watch created by Vacheron Constantin and Abbey Road Studios.
This happened during a private event at London’s Abbey Road Studios. Everyone was caught by surprise when Vacheron Constantin announced the Fiftysix collection, something created in a partnership with musicians, studios and artists. At that same event, the Fiftysix Tourbillon was revealed.
This is indeed a “Rock’n’Roll Watch”! Inspired by a watch originally launched all the way back in 1956, the Fiftysix Tourbillon watch was made in 18-carat pink gold, measuring 41 millimeters in diameter and is only 10.9 millimeters thick. This piece even features one ultra-thin 21-gauge 2160 caliber—manufactured in-house and equipped with a 22-carat gold peripheral rotor.
