Vacheron Constantin’s Overseas Series Launches New Black Elegance
Twenty years ago, the launch of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Series, which became the representative of the ‘watching the spirit of travel and looking at the broad world’ in the fine watchmaking industry. In 2016, Vacheron Constantin adhered to the tradition of fine watchmaking in Geneva, reimagining this iconic classic series with a new perspective, blending a new design aesthetic and a unique inner spirit. As a unique brand masterpiece, the Overseas Vertical and Horizontal series combines sports style with casual elegance, outstanding performance and good style. The blue dial design seems to lead us into the marine world.
New black dial
Both tough temperament and delicate beauty
Two models: automatic and chronograph
In 2018, Vacheron Constantin continued its efforts to launch a black dial with a stainless steel case version, allowing the Overseas Vertical and Horizontal series to shine a new luster.
The characteristic hexagon bezel, the self-winding movement developed and manufactured by the brand, and the design of the replaceable bracelet / strap, all key elements of the Overseas vertical and horizontal series are re-interpreted in the new black dial version, highlighting The collection’s unique design style and superb watchmaking skills.
There are two options for the overseas vertical and horizontal series black dial: a low-key and exquisite self-winding three-hand watch and a chronograph, which can meet the needs of any occasion and style. The three small dials of the chronograph have a silver tone for added legibility. The black-and-white ‘Panda-style’ visual design is derived from a timepiece built for motorsports in the 1960s. The contrast of dark and light colors makes the dial display more eye-catching, highlighting the readability of the chronograph indication.
The chronograph is equipped with a 5200 self-winding movement. Through the transparent sapphire crystal case back, you can admire the 22K gold rotor with the wind rose compass pattern. The dual barrel movement with column wheel can coordinate the start, stop and reset functions of the chronograph. At the same time, the longitudinal coupling clutch can effectively avoid the impact of hand vibration on the start of the chronograph.
In keeping with the trend, Vacheron Constantin launched the concept of quick-changeable bracelet / strap two years ago, and the new black dial watch continues this iconic design. The wearer can quickly change the bracelet / strap through the modular replacement device, without any additional tools, to easily create a unique look that highlights his personal style. The metal bracelet is decorated with a semi-Maltese cross pattern at the links, which is suitable for casual style. The leather strap is very fashionable and the rubber strap is more sporty.
