  • Catalogue Essay

    The Vacheron Constantin Overseas finds its roots in the brand's iconic casual chic 222 model launched in 1977.

    The present Overseas is part of the third generation models featuring a slightly redesigned case and an extremely ingenious and easy to use rapid bracelet switching system. It is with the third generation models that the full potential of the Overseas was unleashed with the presentation of highly complicated pieces including a tourbillon and an extremely elegant ultra slim perpetual calendar.

    The present example is as stunning as it is stealth. The ultra slim (8.1mm) white gold case and bracelet have a heft and sheen that immediately set it apart. The dial is enthralling with its incredible deep blue lacquer dial and translucent multi-layered moonphases display.

    The movement in itself is a technical feat. Even though it consist of 276 components, cal. 1120 QPSQ/1 measures a mere 4.05mm in thickness and is stamped with the prestigious Geneva seal.

    In almost unworn condition and accompanied with its full set of accessories and protective bracelet sticker, the present Overseas perpetual calendar ultra slim in white gold is a must have for the collector looking for a high quality complicated casual chic timepiece.

  • Artist Biography

    Vacheron Constantin

    Swiss • 1755

    The world's oldest watch brand in continuous operation since its founding in 1755, Vacheron Constantin was the first watch company to manufacture movements with interchangeable parts beginning in 1839. Vacheron's watches are admired for their Latin-influenced case designs, well-balanced proportions and exquisitely finished movements of the highest quality. The Geneva-based manufacturer is known for their highly complicated masterpieces, including the King Farouk Grand Complication made in 1935, the Tour de l'Ile that was the most complicated serially produced wristwatch when introduced in 2005 and the 57260 — the world’s most complicated watch — made in 2015.

    Key vintage models include minute repeating wristwatches such as the references 4261, chronographs such as the references 4178 and 6087 and the oversized Cioccolotone models such as ref. 4737. Collectors also appreciate Vacheron's Chronometer Royal pocket and wristwatches, as well as the '222,' the brand's first luxury sports watch produced from 1977 through 1984.
