Vacheron Constantin updates its Overseas collection.
Vacheron Constantin has reinvented one of its iconic collections, overseas, crating five new models (12 references) equipped with the brand’s own movements—including three new calibres.
All models, whether in steel or gold, from the simplest to the most complicated, bear the hallmark of Geneva and are fitted with easily interchangeable bracelets/straps, a guarantee of comfort anywhere in the world. alongside watches featuring simple displays (hours, minutes, seconds, with or without date), the collection also comprises chronographs and ultra-thin timepieces.
the curves of the case ensure seamless integration with the bracelet or strap. the six-sided bezel and the fluted crown with its grooves evoke the maison’s design codes. the rounded, polished and satin-finished opening dips towards a refined dial topped by a sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides.
Coated with a translucent blue, silver- toned, rosy beige or grey lacquer—depending on the model—that intensifies the depth effect, the dials alternate between sunburst, snailed and velvety finishes.
The gold luminescent facetted hands and hour-markers echo the gold frame surround- ing the inner bezel ring, while the arabic numerals ensure optimal readability. the screwed-down caseback is fitted with a sapphire crystal reveals a 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose.
The timepieces are equipped with mechanical self-winding movements ensuring a generous power reserve. Protected from magnetic disturbances by a soft iron ring, these calibres are endowed with precision and durability, while the case ensures water-resistance to 50 metres for the ultra-thin models, and to 150 metres for the others.
