New Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph
With its new Overseas Chronograph, Vacheron Constantin pays homage to the 1960s golden era of motor racing. The 42.5mm case, which is made of stainless steel, can withstand pressures of up to 15 bars. A reverse Panda dial with subdials finished in black velvet is shown on a background with a sunburst finish in silver, and the seconds scale on the flange is also finished in black.
Between 4 and 5 o’clock, a color-coordinated window displays the date. It is powered by the self-winding in-house Caliber 5200, just like the earlier iterations of this luxury chronograph, including the first example from 1999 and the most recent design revision from 2016.
The movement has a 52-hour power reserve, a vertical clutch, and the coveted Geneva Seal. It is also equipped with a column-wheel control. Through the sapphire case back, one can see its careful finishing and 22K gold oscillating weight decorated with a compass rose.
The Overseas Chronograph is fastened to a metal bracelet that resembles the shape of a Maltese cross and includes two alternative straps: a leather strap and a rubber strap.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph has a price tag of $32,400.
