Vacheron Constantin recently made a new model available online at a cost of $45,000 in a collaboration with Hodinkee, a watch-news website.

Vacheron Contantin posted on Facebook that all 36 Cornes de Vache 1955 Limited Edition watches had been snatched up within 30 minutes.
It was the first time that Vacheron Contantin, which is a 262-year-old Richemont brand, had sold its watches online, Bloomberg reports.
