Vacheron Constraint is as prestigious as a watch brand can be. It sources precious metals and hand crafts bespoke, high class, elegant timepieces. Vacheron models date back to 1755 making it the oldest watch manufacturing brand in existence. The company values and quality remain ever present, as seen from the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time.
‘A Certain Nod Towards Enthusiasts of this Reference’
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time is one of the most popular and renowned models in the Swiss watchmakers’ arsenal. The latest model is a certain nod towards enthusiasts of this reference.
The Dual Time is offered in both steel finish and 18 carats rose gold, although steel looks to be the most prominent option among buyers.
The dials are also available in two colours: deep blue or silver tone, with the former offering a more classic Overseas look. This is a trend that is proving increasingly popular in the watch collecting world.
The most unique feature is the simplistic practicalities that the timepiece offers. In addition to the standard hour/minute/second timers, the watch is also fitted with a central hand with a red arrow on it that acts as a home time indicator. It also features an AM/PM time indicator for the seasoned traveller.
The breath taking in-house mechanics can be observed through the custom made sapphire case back. A calibre 5110 DT powers the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time, which is a dual time variant of the calibre 5100. It has an impressive 60-hour reserve and contains 234 components, 37 of which are jewels.
An Adaptable Proprietary Strap
The Overseas is adaptable to the wearer’s needs, offering a proprietary strap changing system. This allows for a straightforward process in taking the strap on and off without any tools and change to either a blue or black alligator leather strap or a blue or black rubber strap to suit the owner’s preference.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time was showcased at this year’s Baselworld. The first available order came in February 2018, when it was announced that the Steel model would set you back $24,700 (£18,500), whilst the gold model retails at $39,500 (£29,800).
