Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph, Caliber 5200

For this winter season Vacheron Constantin updates its overseas collection with a brand new Chronograph model featuring a 42.50 mm diameter steel case and a silver-toned dial evoking winter colours. An interchangeable wristband system serves to switch from steel bracelet to alligator or rubber strap in the twinkling of an eye.

An in-house Vacheron Constantin with a 22K oscillating weight shaped like a wind rose may be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback of this handsome model, distinguished by an extremely pure aesthetic that is bound to make a lasting impression.
