Meet Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar Boutiques Exclusive Watch

Jul 28, 2011
The house of Vacheron Constantin is excited to unveil its new Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar Boutiques Exclusive watch.


Issued in a limited edition of 80 pieces, the company’s brainchild is interpreted in a 42mm stainless steel. It carries a titanium bezel. The same material is employed in the manufacturing of push-piece screws.

The new Vacheron Constantin watch also features a solid case-back, fitted with “Overseas” medallion. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 150 meters.

Hidden inside the case is a soft iron cage, which protects a self-winding mechanical 1136 QP caliber from magnetic fields. It comprises 228 individual parts, including 37 jewels. The mechanism beats to the rhythm of 21,600 vibrations per hour and supplies a 40-hour power.

The new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar Boutiques Exclusive watch comes equipped with a sunburst satin-brushed slate grey dial. It is completed with 12 applied 18-carat gold hour-markers, inlaid with white luminous compound.

The display ensures central hours and minutes. The small seconds, featured at 6 o’clock, are allied with a moon-phase indicator. The chronograph mechanism, equipped with a column wheel, is presented through 12-hour and 30-minute counters as well as a central seconds hand. The dial also offers a perpetual calendar, which includes day of the week and date indications, a 48-month counter and a leap year.

The new Vacheron Constantin watch is accompanied by a black vulcanized rubber strap. Alternatively, it can be mounted on a dark grey hand-sewn saddle-stitched Mississippiensis alligator leather strap. Both versions terminate in a triple-blade double-safety folding clasp with stainless steel pushers.
