Vacheron Constantin Brand new Overseas models

Overseas reinvents itself to celebrate the art of travel with even greater panache.

Dedicated to global nomads, to those who look well beyond borders, seas and oceans, the Overseas line has been perpetually reinventing itself since the launch of the very first models in 1996. Driven by the spirit of travel and openness to the world, this remarkably technical collection has rapidly asserted itself as a benchmark in the field. Its dynamic lines, its distinctive bezel and its solid back adorned with an engraving of the famous Amerigo Vespucci three-masted ship are an anthem to travel, a spirit expressed even more forcefully in the 2016 version equipped with a sapphire caseback. Vacheron Constantin has gradually developed this line over time, including by introducing a metal bracelet in 2004 featuring a motif evoking the Maltese cross brand emblem. Today, the ‘new wave’ Overseas collection composed of Hallmark of Geneva certified calibers casts anchor in the 21st century. An authentic invitation to travel the seven seas and explore every continent, the range introduced in 2016 strikes a chord with travelers and celebrates in due style the ongoing success of this casual, sporty and technical line with 6 new models and 18 references.

The Overseas world time is sure to catch the attention of keen travelers accustomed to coping with jetlag and juggling with time zones, no less than 37 of which appear on the dial of this model available in three variations – with a blue, silver-toned or brown dial – and radiating a spirit of casual elegance and practicality. The display is composed of three parts. In the center, a “Lambert” projection map of the northern hemisphere is combined with a translucent lacquered disk bearing the city names. A third sapphire disk laid over the map provides day/night indications by means of subtly graded smoky tints and is synchronized with the 24-hour disk. Finally, a translucent lacquered velvet-finished outer ring indicates the hours and minutes. An ideal travel companion, the Overseas world time is driven by Hallmark of Geneva certified Caliber 2460 WT, a mechanical self-winding movement patented, developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin, housed in a 43.5mm-diameter case.

For those with a keen taste for a combination of elegance and useful functions, Vacheron Constantin offers an Overseas ultra-thin perpetual calendar displaying its technical complexity with the collection’s characteristically understated air of distinction. This Hallmark of Geneva certified timepiece available exclusively in Vacheron Constantin boutiques houses the emblematic Vacheron Constantin Caliber 1120 QP, an ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement powering a perpetual calendar complete with moon phases. This function calls for impressive feats of miniaturization in order to adapt to calendar irregularities while requiring no adjustment until the year 2100, as well as to accommodate its 276 components within a space barely 4.05mm thick. The mechanism drives indications of the hours, minutes, perpetual calendar – with day of the week, date, month and 48-month leap-year indications – as well as moon phases. The 41.5mm-diameter case in 18K white gold frames a gray dial lightly punctuated by blue accents.
