    - Having become an icon of Vacheron Constantin, the Overseas is one of the most important models released by the firm.

    - In 2004, Vacheron Constantin released the second generation Overseas model ref. 49150 powered by the same calibre as its predecessor and featuring a 42mm diameter case.

    - The present second generation Overseas features a stainless steel case with an engraved caseback and a sandblasted titanium bezel. Striking mustard hands beautifully contrast against the anthracite dial. This combination not only exudes a sporty appeal, but it also enhances the legibility of the dial.

    - The present watch is part of a limited edition of 340 pieces made for the Italian market.

    - It is in new old stock condition, complete with presentation box, Vacheron Constantin passport, USB stick, travel box, hang tags and additional crocodile strap.

  • 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.
