Overseas dual time

Vacheron Constantin’s smart and exciting (dare we say rebellious?) timepiece will soon have been around for 20 years. In the midst of the Genevan watchmaker’s mainly classic collections, the Overseas model stands out from the crowd. The 2015 version is a sight for travellers’ sore eyes: its lacquered blue dial glistens like the sea in the sunshine with all the information that those who regularly cross the time zones could wish for. The 42mm steel case houses the self-winding 1222 SC calibre which brings to life the baton-shape hour, minute and central seconds hands whilst the second time zone and day/night indicator lie at 6 and 7.30 respectively. The date display with hand appears in a blue chamfered dial at 2 o’ clock whilst a power reserve indicator runs from 8 to 11 o’ clock (up to 40 hour power reserve). Price: 18,600 CHF
