The Vacheron Constantin Historiques 222 4200H/222J-B935 was introduced in 2022. An hommage to the 1970's 222, this watch features a monobloc tonneau-shaped case with matching integrated bracelet. The movement within is the self-winding caliber 2455/2, which together with the see-through back is one of the few modern concessions.
In 2022, as part of the collection presented at Watches and Wonders Geneva, Vacheron Constantin is reissuing its emblematic luxury sports watch launched in 1977 for the 222nd anniversary of the brand; the 222. The third member of the iconic Holy Trinity of luxury sports watches (next to the Royal Oak and the Nautilus, all three sharing at the beginning the same base movement), the new Vacheron Constantin Historiques 222 is a typical vintage-inspired watch, yet with some important evolutions to be noted. And the first one being quite obvious; it isn’t released in stainless steel but in yellow gold.
Here’s a quick summary of what you need to know about the new Historiques 222:
With the Vacheron Constantin logo positioned on the lower right of the front of the case, unique hexagonal intermediate links, semicircular bezels, a dial without seconds and superior Vacheron Constantin quality, we think that the new 222 is already among the classics. We hope that a completely stainless steel version of the same model will appear in the future.
