TOWARDS NEW DESINATIONS
The new Overseas has been introduced prior to the Salon de la Haute Horlogerie de Genève 2018, and joins the the collection of timepieces featuring complications that prove highly practical on a daily basis.
Although lacking the gift of ubiquity, watches can show us the time in two different places on the planet simultaneously using a multiple time-zone display. This is, in fact, what is on offer with the Overseas Dual Time and its brand-new automatic mechanical movement (with 60 hours of power reserve). Like the other models in the collection, this timepiece by Vacheron Constantin includes a useful complication for our working lives and private travel. On the dial, a second hour hand, easily recognisable through its arrow tip, shows a second time zone. The date is synchronised to local time, and displayed in a disc at 6 o’clock. A day/night indicator is also coordinated with the local time. All the functions are set using the screwed crown and screwed monopusher at 4 o’clock.
Last but not least, the new Vacheron Constantin timepieces come with interchangeable straps made of steel, leather and rubber, to dress your wrist in style during your travels on land or sea.
Price: €25,400 (steel) – €40,600 (pink gold)
