Vacheron Constantin Overseas Small Model Date Self-Winding Watch - Outstanding Elegance and Technical Complexity

Jun 05, 2011
Vacheron Constantin is glad to adorn a lady’s wrist with its new Overseas Small Model Date Self-Winding watch.

A perfect union of refined watchmaking and exclusive jewellery art, the new Vacheron Constantin watch is offered in a 36mm case. It is crafted from 18K 5N pink gold. The case architecture incorporates a bezel, paved with 88 brilliant-cut diamonds. The overall weight of the jewels constitutes 0.36 carats.

The model demonstrates a solid back part with the “Overseas” medallion. The case is built to be 50-meter water-resistant.

At the heart of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Small Model Date Self-Winding watch is beating a 26.60mm automatic mechanical calibre 1226 movement. It comprises 143 individual parts. Embellished with 36 jewels, the movement runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and supplies a 40-hour power reserve.

The mechanism breathes life into central hours, minutes and seconds as well as a date indication, arranged at 3 o’clock. The functions are immediate and clear on a sunburst satin-brushed silver-toned dial.

It reveals 11 applied Arabic numerals in 5N 18K pink gold and 8 black-painted round hour-markers, inlaid with a white luminescent substance. The hour and minute hands are covered by the same compound. The minute track is painted in black.

Keeping the new Vacheron Constantin lady’s watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is an 18K 5N pink gold bracelet or a taupe colored hand-sewn saddle-stitched alligator leather strap with large square scales. The leather strap interpretation is supplied with an additional strap in grey vulcanized rubber.

Each version terminates in a triple-blade double-safety folding clasp with 18K 5N pink gold pushers and a polished half Maltese Cross.
