In 2016, Vacheron Constantin is opening up whole new horizons for its emblematic watch dedicated to world travellers, Overseas, through original creations adopting an eminently versatile attitude thanks to their interchangeable straps/bracelet. Delivered with a leather and rubber strap as well as a metal bracelet, Overseas will offer even more stylish options for the festive season thanks to an array of strap colours.
These new strap colours enable the wearer to adapt the watch to changing circumstances or wishes. A sense of freedom that is rendered even more appealing by the ease with which one can rapidly switch from one to another of the straps/bracelet, or indeed change its folding clasp or buckle without any need for a tool. And this is all done while ensuring the same reliability and robustness as a fixed strap or bracelet.
Offering a new range of colours designed to inspire audacious style moves, Vacheron Constantin has also given top priority to comfort by developing an easy-fit size adjustment system to ensure the models sit perfectly on the wrist.
The wearer can chose a colour from a palette of shades complementing the three straps/bracelet delivered with the Overseas watch: Semi-matt dark grey, blue or camel for men’s models; pink, light blue or white for ladies’ versions.
Loyal to its values and to its demanding standards, Vacheron Constantin has lavished the same attention to detail on its interchangeable straps/bracelet as on the watch as a whole. The metal bracelet features a domed and satin-finished centre, while the polished inner angles form a half Maltese cross.
The hand-sewn Mississipiensis alligator leather strap with its large square scales has a nubuck lining with a micro-perforated effect. Not to be outshone, the surface of the rubber strap picks up a motif inspired by the Vacheron Constantin emblem, infusing the Overseas with a trendy style that is both casual and elegant.
