Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin

The Overseas collection dedicated to travellers broadens its range with interpretations endowing the ultra-thin perpetual calendar with two different faces. One is a more relaxed version graced with a blue dial framed by a pink gold case and blue straps; and the other a more elegant interpretation fitted with a pink gold bracelet beautifully offsetting its silver-toned dial.

Embodying a modern lifestyle resolutely open to the world at large, the Overseas collection features a distinctive design expressing Fine Watchmaking dedicated to practical convenience. A six-sided bezel evoking Vacheron Constantin’s Maltese Cross emblem; a translucent lacquered dial with facetted and luminescent gold hands and hour-markers; Manufacture movements designed to facilitate everyday use; a 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a windrose; tool-free interchangeability of the bracelet/straps: Overseas epitomises the essence of contemporary living.

Calibre 1120 QP/1

Available in an 18K 5N pink gold case, the new Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin watches display their technical complexity with an aura of understated distinction. These timepieces house the iconic Vacheron Constantin 1120 QP calibre, an ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement completed with perpetual calendar and moon-phase functions. Representing a true feat of miniaturisation, this mechanism comprising 276 components housed within a space barely 4.05 mm thick copes with calendar irregularities and requires no related adjustments until the year 2100. Beating at the frequency of 2.75 Hz while enjoying a 40-hour power reserve, it drives indications of the hours and minutes, perpetual calendar – day of the week, date, month and leap year on a 48-hour counter – along with moon phases.
