The Overseas Self-Winding

This elegantly sporty timepiece from Vacheron Constantin is now presented in pink gold.

The Overseas was fist presented in 1996, created for global travellers that want a casual yet elegant watch. This collection is identifiable through its hexagonal bezel that evokes the Maltese cross that the brand is associated with. This three-hand version is just as sophisticated as its brothers in the collection, boasting its most striking asset in the all-gold theme running from the case to the bracelet.

The dial is presented in an intense blue color that gives off vibrant and shimmering effects when tilted around under a light. The sunburst satin-brushed centre makes a pleasing contrast with he circular satin-finished flange and velvet-finish minute circle. This ocean of blue beautifully punctuates the gold hour markers and hands that are coated in white luminescent material. Meanwhile, the date window is discreetly placed at 3 o’clock. These striking colours perfectly blend with the pink gold of the 41 mm case, flowing into a bracelet that features pink gold links inspired by the Maltese cross. The 18K 5N pink gold case contains a soft iron casing ring that offers anti-magnetic protection. It has a screwed down crown that allows the watch to have a water resistance of 150 meters.

This timepiece carries the Manufacture 5100 calibre that possesses a comfortable 60-hour power reserve. Armed with accuracy and reliability, this movement is graced with refined decorations that can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. The 22K gold oscillating weight  contains a wind rose and rotates on the baseplate graced with a Côtes de Genève motif.

The Overseas self-winding, like its wearers, adapts to every situation. Depending on the situation, it easily swaps out its gold bracelet for a blue rubber or alligator leather strap, thanks to the Overseas line’s signature interchangeability system.
