Vacheron Constantin Launches Historique 1955/1968 Ultra-thin Watch

For a long time, Vacheron Constantin has dedicated itself to creating one milestone after another in the field of professional watchmaking. For example, the brand launched the world’s thinnest watch in the 1950s and 1960s. Today, the Swiss watchmaker wants to once again challenge the thinnest watch, and present the breathtaking essence of ultra-thin movement to the world.
    In 2010, Vacheron Constantin’s ‘Historiques’ historical masterpiece series added a new member, two watches inspired by the brand’s works from the 1950s and 1960s, with a contemporary flavor to reshape the essence of the original works-two Ultra-thin movement: the first is the Historique 1955 circular watch with 1003 manual winding mechanical movement. This movement is by far the thinnest movement in the world, with a thickness of only 1.64 mm. It is cast in Geneva Imprint and reinterpreted in 18K gold. The second model is a square Historique 1968 ultra-thin watch: equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement of the model 1120, with a new decorative pattern pendulum and the Geneva stamp.
    In 1955, Vacheron Constantin introduced the 1003 movement to celebrate the brand’s 200th anniversary. The movement has a diameter of 21.05 mm and a thickness of 1.64 mm, making the 1003 movement the smallest mechanical movement in the world. This legendary movement was used on three round watches and at the time set the record for the world’s thinnest watch with a case thickness of only 4.54 mm.
    Vacheron Constantin’s 1911 historical record includes three movements with a thickness of 2.82 mm, which are 8, 9 and 10 cents apart. Later, the brand launched a series of ultra-thin movements, creating brilliant achievements in fine watchmaking and becoming the thinnest movement ever: 2.25 mm created in 1917; 1.88 mm created in 1924. These movements have been used in some unique styles, such as the crystal watch introduced in 1926, equipped with a 2.63 mm red gold movement (watch picture). In 1931, Vacheron Constantin launched a pocket watch with a mechanical movement with a diameter of 17 cents 5/12 and a thickness of only 0.94 mm. This watch established a new world record for pocket watches (watch pictures). In 1981, the brand continued the concept of ultra-thin movement and launched the ‘Structura’ watch series. This series establishes a more sophisticated ultra-thin movement original field by turning the movement upside down and setting the hands on the side of the bridge, so that connoisseurs can fully appreciate the complex structure of the watch.
    In 1992, Vacheron Constantin extended its expertise in the field of ultra-thin movements to advanced complex precision movements, and launched the thinnest minute repeater movement with a thickness of only 3.28 mm, which set the brand to another record.

When it comes to self-winding movements, Vacheron Constantin is never far behind. Since 1945, ultra-thin self-winding movements, such as the Model 477 9/12, have been introduced, being the first movements in the entire series. Model 498 created in 1951; models 499 and 1019 created in 1953; and model 1071 created in 1958.
    Among the many movements developed by the brand, a unique hand-wound movement has always attracted experts and collectors. The development of this movement began in 1952 at L’ lle (the former headquarters of the brand and was established by the Rhone in Geneva in 1875), and the 1003 model was introduced in 1955 to celebrate the brand’s 200th anniversary. With a diameter of 21.05 mm and a thickness of 1.64 mm, the 1003 movement is the smallest mechanical movement in the world. This micromechanical masterpiece is made up of 120 parts and is the size of a tiny Swiss franc 20 centime coin. This legendary movement (although its record-setting design was subsequently replaced by other fine watchmaking brands) has been used on three round watches, creating the world’s thinnest watch with a case thickness of only 4.54 mm recording. The shapes of these three original Vacheron Constantin timepieces have been deeply imprinted in people’s minds since then: round, classic, ultra-thin, and highly reliable.
