Vacheron Constantin launches new Overseas Ultramarine Blue Limited Edition watches
July 14, 2015: Vacheron Constantin has launched two new Overseas watches clad in a deep shade of blue, a simple date and a Dual Time. These two new classic timepieces radiate sporting elegance.
The Overseas collection features a deep blue dial bearing luminescent hands and hour-markers serving to ensure optimal readability in all circumstances. Available in an elegant 42 mm-diameter steel case with a screw-lock crown, the Overseas (simple date) and Overseas Dual Time watches combine technical excellence with a refined, dynamic design.
Both bear the identity codes of Vacheron Constantin’s sporty and technical line launched in 1996: powerful, flowing lines, a bezel inspired by the brand-emblem Maltese Cross and a caseback engraved with the famous Amerigo Vespucci three-mast ship.
The Overseas (simple date) is equipped with Caliber 1226 SC, a mechanical self-winding movement powering hours, minutes and central seconds hands, as well an aperture-type date display. The Overseas Dual Time is equipped with self-winding Caliber 1222 SC which, along with the hours, minutes, central seconds and aperture-type date, also drives a dual-time display with day/night indication as well as a power-reserve indication.
Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour these timepieces enjoy around 40 hours of power reserve. Their mechanical movements are protected from magnetic fields by a soft iron case integrated within the case itself, and are water-resistant to 15 bar (approximately 150 metres).
The Overseas (simple date) and Overseas Dual Time models are issued in respective limited editions of 350 and 300 and delivered with two dark blue straps matching the dial: one in vulcanized rubber and the other in Mississipiensis alligator leather. A triple-blade, double pusher folding clasp guarantees security and comfort.
