New Vacheron Constantin Overseas Models

From 1996 to today, the Overseas collection has produced elegant sport watches with a signature bezel. The design has been updated over the years to continue to suit any occasion whether traveling, sporting or formal occasions.The Overseas Ultra-Thin and Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar are both boutique exclusive models and are 7.5mm and 8.1mm thick respectively.

Four New Overseas Models

In 2016, the watches received another update, this time with the Hallmark of Geneva. This Hallmark is the oldest and most prestigious certification of excellence in watchmaking. Watches must meet certain criteria, ensuring the best results in aesthetics and reliability.

Three new movements required a five year-long process of development, you can see the attention to detail and development through the exhibition case back of the watches. The watches have gone through a small change in the evolution of the shape of the case, design of the dial and hands and the in-house movement.

Overseas Chronograph

The re-design of the Overseas Chronograph features a slightly moved around dial display. Rather than having the date at 12 o’clock, you’ll now be able to read it between 4 and 5 o’clock. The slight angle of the aperture allows for quick reading when your not looking directly into the dial.
