New black (dial) beauties by Vacheron Constantin
In the spirit of travel
Vacheron Constantin's Overseas watch started its journey 20 years ago, made with the jetsetter and globetrotter in mind. Now an emblematic collection for the manufacture, the Overseas continues to make waves for its excellence in both performance and aesthetic.
Today, Vacheron Constantin unveils the all-new Overseas black dial model, available in two versions: a self-winding three-hand watch and a chronograph.
Steeped in elements that are distinctively Overseas, both timepieces feature a six-sided bezel, self-winding in-house movements, and interchangeable straps—a function that can be done easily without tools. The classic black dial is contrasted with 18K white gold markers and a stainless steel case. Function equals form as the hour and minute hands are highlighted with white luminescent material for better legibility, which also sees silver-toned counters on the chronograph version.
The three-hand model bears the self-winding Caliber 5100 with a 60-hour power reserve, while the chronograph version is driven by the self-winding Caliber 5200 with 52 hours of power reserve. Depending on the occasion, switch it up between a steel bracelet and straps in either leather or rubber.
