As a young boy, I recall my father saying that the music at the time was ‘not as good as in my day’. My grandmother talked about ‘food tasting better in her day’. On the face of it, everything seemed better in times gone by.
Now I am older, I reminisce about the ‘good old days’ and look back at my youth through rose-tinted glasses. The fact is, while some aspects of life have deteriorated, many things have improved. There is merit in revisiting the past, reinterpreting what has gone before, but embracing the new and the advancement it confers.
I am reminded of this scenario when I look at the Vacheron Constantin FiftySix collection. The Genevan watch company has delved into its history, reappraised the reference 6073, a model from the 1950s, and conceived an array of new watches applicable to a modern-day audience.

“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
