Unveiled at the Watches & Wonders Shanghai 2020 exhibition, this new 41 mm Vacheron Constantin Overseas self-winding model combines for the first time its sleek silhouette sculpted in pink gold with a blue Overseas dial.
This versatile, luxury sports watch is available with three interchangeable bracelet/straps (pink gold, blue alligator, blue rubber.
The Overseas collection, immediately recognisable by its hexagonal bezel evoking the Maltese cross, continues to explore new aesthetic horizons. Following in the wake of the Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin model in pink gold and blue dial launched for Watches & Wonders 2020, the sportiest collection from the Maison is interpreted in a self-winding three-hand version that is as precious as it is sophisticated. The all-gold theme running from case to bracelet is stylishly enhanced by the iconic Overseas blue.
The intense blue colour of the dial accentuates the sporty character of the watch. The sunburst satin-brushed centre makes a pleasing contrast with the circular satin-finished flange and velvet-finish minute circle. This subtle translucent blue-lacquered composition is punctuated by gold hour-markers and hands coated in white luminescent material.
A date appearing discreetly at 3 o’clock completes the picture. This elegant and functional style makes a perfect match with the pink gold of the 41 mm case, flowing into a bracelet featuring likewise pink gold links inspired by the Maltese cross.
The Overseas self-winding watch relies on the Manufacture 5100 calibre and its comfortable 60-hour power reserve. In addition to its accuracy and reliability, it is graced with refined decorations revealed through the sapphire crystal case-back. A 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose rotates on the baseplate graced with a Côtes de Genève motif.
A major USP of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection is the provisioning of interchangeable straps. This new model offers two extra straps in addition to the pink gold bracelet.
Depending on the occasion, its owner can easily swaps out its gold bracelet for a blue rubber or alligator leather strap thanks to the Overseas line’s signature interchangeability system.
The Overseas dual time and pink gold chronograph models can thus be fitted with the new gold bracelet introduced on this model and available in Vacheron Constantin boutiques and points of sale.
