  • Catalogue Essay

    Released to the market in 2021, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph “Everest” was made as a limited edition of 150 pieces inspired by the 2019 prototypes worn by mountaineering photographer Cory Richards.

    Cased in two tone stainless steel and titanium, the contrast of both metals with varying finishes including a bead-blasted texture for its bezel, satin-brushed finish for its surface of the case and mirror-polished casebands all fused into a fine combination of subtle contrasts and the firm’s prowess to their craft. The dial is nothing short of spectacular, tastefully designed the grey-blue grained dial features vibrant orange chronographic hands that provide the perfect legibility in harsh environments such as the Everest. Powered by the firm’s in-house column wheel chronograph movement cal. 5200, it is stamped with the Geneva seal.

    Offered in “brand new” condition and complete with its full set of accessories, the present Overseas Chronograph “Everest” numbered 54 is a collector’s delight. Being one of the most successful launches by the firm last year, the present model, well-received by collectors has since become rare and highly sought-after in the market with its allocation from the boutique fully sold. Now it is a perfect chance for collectors to acquire an unworn example for those who have missed out on their allocations from the boutique.

  • 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.
