The spirit of travel: The Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection
A new worldview
In an undertaking of epic horological proportions, Vacheron Constantin has overhauled one of their iconic collections, the Overseas, and has devoted this impressive re-issue to modern day globetrotters.
The reinvented collection exudes a rare combination of casual elegance and practicality. Three new calibres merge simple and complicated displays, powered by an oscillating weight fashioned in the symbol of the wind rose — an emblem that represents all journeymen. Stretching back to 1885 wherein the maison created the first sports-oriented watches, Vacheron Constantin pools almost two centuries worth of their horology expertise into the aesthetics of the Overseas series.
The culmination of this unparalleled finesse is ergonomically designed timepieces with smooth, fluid lines and delicate finishes that softly reflect light. All five models — the Calibre 5200 Overseas Chronograph, the Calibre 5100 Overseas, the small model Calibre 5300 Overseas, the Calibre 1120 Overseas Ultra-thin, and the Calibre 1120 QP Overseas ultra-thin perpetual calendar — are a seamless integration of rich details and sophisticated watchmaking technology.
Crafted with sapphire crystal dials, faceted markers in luminous gold, a precise self-winding mechanical movement, and a water-resistant capability, each piece is a unique individual with wrist straps customisable to the wearer's preference. Further catapulting this esteemed collection into the stratosphere of haute horlogerie, each timepiece has been stamped with the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva quality label to guarantee provenance, resilience, accuracy and expertise.
Much like uncovering a different horizon to explore, the reborn Overseas collection is the dawn of a new generation of remarkable timepieces. Self-professed watch and travel lovers alike will be hard pressed to select just one piece as their signature chronometre.
The Overseas collection is available exclusively at the Vacheron Constantin boutique at Ion Orchard and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Click here to further explore the collection.
