评论 [Review]
The word ‘fly’ was popular in the 1960s and was adopted by many brands. This Vacheron Constantin self-winding watch was produced in 1960. The design of the time stamp incorporates the inspiration of the early ‘fly character’, but it is not as it is, it just reverses the order of the notes and gives a new fly font feel.
This reminds me of the enthusiasm of learning in the Swiss watchmaking industry in the 1960s. For example, the winding mechanism of the woodpecker in the early IWC was modified by Longines and used on the self-produced 19AS movement. Vacheron Constantin’s watches are very popular, but their performance in the second-hand market does not always seem to be strong, and the price is always up.
