  • Catalogue Essay

    Having become an icon of Vacheron Constantin, the Overseas is one of the most important models released by the firm. Taking its inspiration from the famed 222 from 1977 designed by Jorg Hysek Sr to celebrate the 222nd anniversary of the firm. In 1999, the firm released their first Overseas model featuring a chronograph complication via the ref. 49140, the reference was discontinued in 2004 making way for the new ref. 49150 powered by the same calibre as its predecessor cal. 1137 featuring a 42mm diameter case.

    The present Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph ref. 49150 belongs to a handsome and slick iteration that was released as a limited edition of 340 pieces in total in 2015. It features a stainless steel case with an engraved caseback and a sandblasted titanium bezel. Paired tastefully with a sunburst gunmetal grey dial with black registers and vibrant yellow chronographic hands, not only does it exude a sporty appeal, but it also enhances the legibility of the dial. Preserved in attractive overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories along with two additional straps to cater towards the occasions, this wonderful Overseas Chronograph is a perfect choice to start the summer.

  • 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.
