The Overseas Chronograph watch bearing the Hallmark of Geneva is equipped with caliber 5200, the new self-winding chronograph movement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. The result of a five-year development process, this 263-component caliber is fitted with a column wheel coordinating the chronograph start, stop and reset functions, whereas a vertical coupling clutch prevents any jerking of the hand when the chronograph starts. The column wheel is adorned with a screw shaped like the Manufacture's signature Maltese cross emblem.
The Overseas Chronograph comes in a stainless steel 42.5mm case. Its screwed-down pushpieces, crown and caseback guarantee water-resistance to 150 meters, while its transparent back reveals a 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose. Like the other references from the Overseas collection with blue and silver-toned dials, this new stainless steel model is delivered with three interchangeable bracelet/straps: a steel bracelet with an easy-fit system, along with rubber and leather straps. The two latter are fitted with an equally interchangeable stainless steel folding clasp.
