Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar Watch- Tradition of Excellence

Sep 10, 2012
The Vacheron Constantin iconic Overseas collection welcomes a new version of the Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar watch. As witnessed by its name, the new timepiece has smartly combined two most favored horological complications - a chronograph and a perpetual calendar.

The new Vacheron Constantin watch has inherited all the signature characteristics of the Overseas collection. The case demonstrates flowing and powerful lines. It incorporates the bezel inspired by the brand’s Maltese Cross emblem. The case-back reveals a raised medallion depicting the Amerigo Vespucci ship.

The 42mm-in-diameter case is rendered in 18K pink gold. It is 150-meter water-resistant. It is constructed with a soft iron cage that offers protection to the mechanical movement from magnetic fields of up to 25,000 A/m.

The subtle sandy tint of the dial nicely matches the pink gold of the case. The dial guarantees perfect readability under any light conditions due to the hands and hour-markers accented with white luminescent substance.

The case accommodates an exceptional mechanical self-winding movement - Calibre 1136 QP. The 228-part mechanism, operating at the rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour, gives advantage of a 40- hour power reserve.

The movement gives life to the following functions: the hours, minutes and small seconds presented at 6 o’clock, the chronograph function with a sweep seconds-hand, 30-minute counter found at 3 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock. It also animates the perpetual calendar function– day of the week, date, 48-month counter with leap years and a moon-phase display.

The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar watch is presented with two straps - a brown vulcanized rubber strap and a brown alligator leather strap. The strap is fitted with a pink gold triple-blade, double-pusher folding clasp providing the proper security and comfort for the wearer of the timepiece.

The novelty is delivered with a luxurious presentation case, along with a rotating mechanism that keeps the watch perpetually wound when you are not wearing it.
