Overseas Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar

May 25, 2018

Overseas, the traveler’s collection, welcomes a new model epitomizing relaxed elegance: The Overseas ultra-thin perpetual calendar features an incredible slim rose gold case measuring just 8.1mm thick.

This new Overseas timepiece is characterized by comfort and user friendliness, combined with a style that evolves in step with interchangeable straps/bracelet.

Travel Time: The traveler-dedicated Overseas collection flaunts a distinctive design epitomizing fine watchmaking dedicated to user friendliness. A six-sided bezel evoking Vacheron Constantin’s Maltese cross, a translucent lacquered dial with facetted and luminescent gold hands and hour-markers; in-house movements designed for smooth and easy handling; a 22-karat gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose; and interchangeable bracelet/straps enabling tool-free fitting.

Overseas embodies a modern lifestyle resolutely open to the wider world.

Presented with rose gold case, the new Overseas ultra-thin perpetual calendar reveals its technical complexity while exuding an aura of understated distinction.

This timepiece, one of the slimmest on the market, houses the iconic Vacheron Constantin Caliber 1120 QP/1, an ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement powering perpetual calendar and moon-phase indications. An authentic feat of miniaturization, this barely 4.05mm thick movement (comprising 276 parts) keeps track of calendar irregularities with no need for correction until 2100.

Beating at a frequency of 2.5 Hz and endowed with an approximately 40-hour power reserve, it drives the hours and minutes, perpetual calendar – day of the week, date, month and leap year on a 48-month counter – as well as moon-phase functions.

Its rose gold case, measuring 41.5mm in diameter and water-resistant to 50 meters, frames a translucent silver-toned lacquered dial punctuated by gold hands and hour-markers highlighted with luminescent material, while the transparent sapphire crystal caseback reveals a 22-karat oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose.

Secured by an interchangeable rose gold folding clasp, the equally interchangeable dark blue alligator or rubber straps provide an extremely chic way of accentuating the refinement of this model.
