It was another on-line sale of specially made watches — offered exclusively just last week via our friends and colleagues over at Hodinkee —  that has created quite a buzz. The specially made  Vacheron Constantin watch represented the brand’s  first co-designed collaboration. Now, if you read Hodinkee frequently, you would know that the original Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955  watch is a favorite of theirs (or at least of founder, Benjamin Clymer). So, the choice of this watch as a special edition was not a big surprise. The point is, though that the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 Limited Edition for Hodinkee  36-piece collection, priced at $45,000 USD each, has totally sold out. In fact, there is now a  waiting list should any of those first-come-first-server takers opt out (but why would they?).
