Vacheron Constantin - New Overseas Limited Editions - The Overseas (simple date) and Overseas Dual Time

Swiss luxury watch manufacture Vacheron Constantin presents two exclusive new Overseas watches clad in a deep shade of blue, a simple date and a Dual Time.

The Overseas collection by Vacheron Constantin represents an authentic invitation to set sail on a fascinating journey, and the two new references feature a deep blue dial bearing luminescent hands and hour-markers serving to ensure optimal readability in all circumstances. Available in an elegant 42 mm-diameter steel case with a screw-lock crown, the Overseas (simple date) and Overseas Dual Time watches combine technical excellence with a refined, dynamic design. Both bear the identity codes of Vacheron Constantin’s sporty and technical line launched in 1996: powerful, flowing lines, a bezel inspired by the brand-emblem Maltese Cross and a caseback engraved with the famous Amerigo Vespucci three-mast ship.
The ultimate elegant sports watch, the Overseas (simple date) is equipped with Caliber 1226 SC, a mechanical self-winding movement powering hours, minutes and central seconds hands, as well an aperture-type date display. Meanwhile, the Overseas Dual Time is equipped with self-winding Caliber 1222 SC which, along with the hours, minutes, central seconds and aperture-type date, also drives a dual-time display with day/night indication as well as a power-reserve indication.

Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour these timepieces enjoy around 40 hours of power reserve. Their mechanical movements are protected from magnetic fields by a soft iron case integrated within the case itself, and are water-resistant to 15 bar (approximately 150 metres).

Exclusive by their very nature, the Overseas (simple date) and Overseas Dual Time models are issued in respective limited editions of 350 and 300 and delivered with two dark blue straps matching the dial: one in vulcanised rubber and the other in Mississipiensis alligator leather. A triple-blade, double pusher folding clasp guarantees both security and comfort for the wearer of these exceptional watches.
