Vacheron Constantin Overseas Ultra-Thin – Calibre 1120

The Overseas Ultra-thin watch exudes an aura of apparent sobriety. Available exclusively in Vacheron Constantin boutiques, this distinguished model meets the demanding Hallmark of Geneva requirements.
Its slim 18K white gold 40 mm-diameter case houses Calibre 1120, an ultra-thin  self-winding  movement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, comprising 144 components while measuring no more than 2.45 mm thick.
Endowed with an approximately 40-hour power reserve, the Overseas ultra-thin drives hours and minutes hands sweeping over an elegant grey dial punctuated by gold luminescent facetted hands and hour-markers.
The back of the watch, protected by a sapphire crystal, reveals the steady dance of the 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind  rose and featuring  alternating polished, sandblasted and finely grained finishes.
Fitted with an interchangeable white gold case with easy-fit system, this new model is complemented by two straps – one in leather and the other in rubber – secured by a white gold buckle.
