Vacheron Constantin Overseas small model – Calibre 5300

The Overseas Small Model is adorned with 84 round-cut diamonds totalling over one carat and daintily set on its six-sided bezel. At the heart of its stainless steel or 18K pink 37 mm-diameter case beats the new Calibre 5300 developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin.
This 128-part self-winding movement powers the hours, minutes and small seconds at 9 o’clock, while ensuring an approximately two-day power reserve. The Overseas small model comes with a choice of rosy beige or blue dial. A pair of gold luminescent hands sweeps around the matching hour-markers punctuating this perfectly legible dial face.
The back of the watch provides an equally enchanting sight by revealing the 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose. Proudly bearing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva, the Overseas small model comes with interchangeable bracelet/straps.
The steel models are delivered with three interchangeable bracelet/straps and an interchangeable folding clasp, while the pink gold models come with two or three bracelet/straps that can be fitted with an interchangeable folding clasp or a buckle.
