NEW Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph
Vacheron Constantin is one of the most refined and sophisticated watch brands out there! It’s right up there with A Lange & Sohne, Patek Philippe & Breguet in terms of quality, exclusivity and heritage. The Vacheron Constantin Overseas is just as iconic as the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Philippe Nautilus and IWC Ingenieur. This SIHH 2016, Vacheron Constantin released a NEW collection of Overseas. This includes; The Overseas Chronograph,Overseas, Overseas Small Model, Overseas Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar & Overseas Ultra Thin.
The NEW Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph is available in stainless steel with blue and silver dial options. The case is 42.5mm in diameter. Depending on the model, Overseas watches are delivered with two or three different removable steel or gold bracelets/leather and rubber straps that can be fitted with a folding clasp. An ingenious interchangeability device enables smooth and easily alternation between the bracelets/straps and folding clasps without any tools, while guaranteeing the same sturdiness as a fixed bracelet/strap.
The movement is the NEW column-wheel chronograph Caliber 5200, developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin. I like that the dial is recessed but I am not a fan of the date or the placement of it at the four o’clock position because it totally throws off the symmetry of the dial. This is a three registered chronograph with the sub seconds hand at the nine o’clock position, minute sub seconds of the chronograph at the three o’clock position and hour sub seconds hand at the six o’clock position. There are applied hour markers and minute indices in between.
