Vacheron Constantin’s new Overseas spring collection is your all-day, all-purpose timepiece

Ever evolving, Vacheron Constantin now flaunts six new watches in its Overseas collection, uniquely designed to make switching out your watch straps now a tool-free, snappier affair. Working a stylish elegance that incorporates a hint of sporty appeal — think super sleek athleisure that tackles everything from jetsetting to an evening soiree — the spring lineup includes all-steel timepieces and combination rose gold-stainless steel versions.

Of the six models, two are the steel references, measuring a 37mm in diametre with striking watch faces in blue and rosy beige. Colour coded to the dials, additional rubber and leather straps expand the dress options for these timepieces on top of its stainless steel bracelet. And if you're looking to flash a bit more flair, you've got four watch choices in stainless steel frames highlighted with an 18K pink gold bezel. Two of the combo-case editions come similarly sized as its steel counterparts in 37mm, with the exception of brilliant-cut diamonds decorating one of the frames for a more feminine take. But balancing out these smaller Overseas watches are larger 41mm and 42.5mm pieces for the gents, with the former keeping things on the minimal side while the latter comes with the whole kit and caboodle — a small seconds sub-dial and a column wheel chronograph indicator that delineates 30-minute and 12-hour displays, powered by a mechanical self-winding calibre.

Of course, it goes without saying that the spring collection bears the iconic Vacheron Constantin windrose-inspired Overseas oscillating weight, and is fine watchmaking at its purest. The only question now is: Which will you choose? With three interchangeable bracelet options for each model - that makes 36 different ways to wear if you want to be technical — this is styleception to keep you swapping your look for days.

The new Overseas spring collection is available at Vacheron Constantin boutiques.
