The new Vacheron Constantin watch is available in a 42mm steel case. It carries the line’s signature bezel, encouraged by the Maltese Cross. It is crafted from titanium. So are the guards of the push-pieces.
The case is also equipped with a screw-down back part. It features a medallion, engraved with the famous Amerigo Vespucci three-masted sailing ship. The model provides 150-meter water-resistance.
The case incorporates a soft iron cage, which serves to protect a self-winding mechanical calibre 1136 QP movement from magnetic fields. Composed of 228 parts, it operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a 40-hour power reserve.
The mechanism brings to life an array of useful functions, presented on a sun-burst satin-brushed slate grey dial. It is fitted with applied white gold hour-markers, inlaid with a white luminescent compound.
The display of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar watch ensures central hours and minutes as well as small seconds, shown at 6 o’clock. Additionally, the dial offers a function of perpetual calendar and those of chronograph, which can be easily read off from three yellow hands.
Endowed with a leap year display and a moon-phase indicator, the calendar tells the day of the week, the date and the month on a 48-year cycle.
The new Vacheron Constantin watch comes fitted with a black vulcanized rubber strap or a dark grey alligator leather strap. Each version joins to a triple-blade double-pusher folding clasp.
