In 2016, Vacheron Constantin is opening up whole new horizons for its emblematic watch dedicated to world travellers, Overseas, through original creations adopting an eminently versatile attitude thanks to their interchangeable straps/bracelet. Delivered with leather and rubber straps as well as a metal bracelet, Overseas will offer even more stylish options for the festive season thanks to an array of strap colors.
These new strap colors enable the wearer to adapt the watch to changing circumstances or wishes. A sense of freedom that is rendered even more appealing by the ease with which one can rapidly switch between straps and bracelet, or indeed change its folding clasp or buckle without any need for a tool. And this is all done while ensuring the same reliability and robustness as a fixed strap or bracelet.
Offering a new range of colors designed to inspire audacious style moves, Vacheron Constantin has also given top priority to comfort by developing an easy-fit size adjustment system to ensure the models sit perfectly on the wrist.
The toughest part? Choosing a color from a palette of shades complementing the three straps/bracelet delivered with the Overseas watch: Semi-matte dark grey, blue or camel for men’s models; pink, light blue or white for ladies’ versions. The possibilities for matching an Overseas watch to a current mood (or outfit) are as numerous as they are varied! Even the rubber strap plays the chameleon and is capable of morphing in a moment to blue for men; or to white for women.
Loyal to its values and to its demanding standards, Vacheron Constantin has lavished the same attention to detail on its interchangeable straps/bracelet as on the watch as a whole. The metal bracelet features a domed and satin-finished center, while the polished inner angles form a half Maltese cross. The hand-sewn Mississipiensis alligator leather strap with its large square scales has a nubuck lining with a micro-perforated effect. Not to be outshone, the surface of the rubber strap picks up a motif inspired by the Vacheron Constantin emblem, infusing the Overseas with a trendy style that is both casual and elegant.
The interchangeable straps/bracelet concept and this range of colors will ensure elegant travels around the world.
