Introducing: The Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921 In White Gold (And A Platine Limited Edition!) - HODINKEE
Apr 07, 2021 2 mins, 11 secs

With its distinctive square case, unique corner-set crown, and cockeyed dial, Vacheron Constantin's Historiques American 1921 line has long been an interesting vintage-inspired design that captures the roaring twenties with personality to spare.

Now, as part of the brand's Watches & Wonders 2021 announcements, the Historiques American 1921 is celebrating the centenary of its inspiration with a new trio of precious-metal models.

Left to right: The 36.5mm Historiques American 1921 (white gold), the 40mm Historiques American 1921 Collection Excellence Platine (platinum), and the 40mm Historiques American 1921 (white gold).

With a pair of new white-gold models in 36.5mm and 40mm, and a special limited edition platinum 40mm version for Vacheron Constantin's Collection Excellence Platine, the Historiques American 1921 line continues to connect casual sprezzatura with the old-world language of luxury.

Conversely, in full platinum with a sandblasted platinum dial set with white-gold Arabic numerals – the Historiques American 1921 Collection Excellence Platine.

And, like the quiet call of an ethereal green light across the bay, the Historiques American 1921 has a special charm all its own, especially in white gold.

As previously mentioned, these ritzy new models from Vacheron Constantin include two non-limited production versions in white gold (36.5mm and 40mm), and a 100-piece limited-edition model in platinum (which is also part of the brand's growing "Collection Excellence Platine" that includes models from most of VC's family delivered in a specific and very-platinum format – see additional examples here).

If indeed you want to flex as hard as possible on all of the gatecrashers and flat tires who have come to sip on free giggle water and swim in your pool, no one is going to call bunk at the endlessly spiffy Historiques American 1921 Collection Excellence Platine, which matches its 40mm 950 platinum case with a sandblasted platinum dial and white-gold applied markers

As an esoteric derivation within the greater range of watches they produce, the Historiques American 1921 remains an attractive offering and a welcome home for white gold

Pricing starts at $29,600 for the 36.5mm, with the 40mm white gold listed at $35,900 and the limited edition in platinum topping out at $49,700
