VACHERON CONSTANTIN - Overseas self-winding

The epitome of sporty elegance, now fully dressed in pink gold





Its looks are chic, its temperament sporty. A symbol of escapism and exploration, the 41 mm Overseas self-winding model, unveiled at the Watches & Wonders Shanghai 2020 exhibition, combines for the first time its sleek silhouette sculpted in pink gold with a blue Overseas dial.

The Overseas collection, immediately recognisable by its hexagonal bezel evoking the Maltese cross, continues to explore new aesthetic horizons. Following in the wake of the Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin model in pink gold and blue dial launched for Watches & Wonders 2020, the sportiest collection from the Maison is interpreted in a self-winding three-hand version that is as precious as it is sophisticated. Its most striking asset lies in the all-gold theme running from case to bracelet and stylishly enhanced by the iconic Overseas blue.





Sleek and functional style


The visual journey begins on the dial, whose intense blue colour accentuates the sporty character of the watch. Its pure surface reveals a world of details, hovering between vibrant and shimmering light effects. The sunburst satin-brushed centre makes a pleasing contrast with the circular satin-finished flange and velvet-finish minute circle. This subtle translucent blue-lacquered composition is punctuated by gold hour-markers and hands coated in white luminescent material. A date appearing discreetly at 3 o'clock completes the picture. This elegant and functional style makes a perfect match with the pink gold of the 41 mm case, flowing into a bracelet featuring likewise pink gold links inspired by the Maltese cross.

Interchangeable bracelet/straps


Because an active life involves countless surprises, the Overseas self-winding adapts to every situation by adopting an attitude of versatile elegance. Depending on the occasion, it easily swaps out its gold bracelet for a blue rubber or alligator leather strap thanks to the Overseas line’s signature interchangeability system. The Overseas dual time and pink gold chronograph models can thus be fitted with the new gold bracelet introduced on this model and available in Vacheron Constantin boutiques and points of sale.




The accuracy of a self-winding movement


The Overseas self-winding watch relies on the Manufacture 5100 calibre and its comfortable 60-hour power reserve. In addition to its accuracy and reliability, it is graced with refined decorations revealed through the sapphire crystal case-back. A 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose rotates on the baseplate graced with a Côtes de Genève motif. A potent symbol, like an invitation to journey…


Summary


For the first time, the 41mm Overseas self-winding watch teams a pink gold case and bracelet with a blue Overseas dial. An elegant combination delivered with three interchangeable bracelet/straps (pink gold, blue alligator leather, blue rubber).
