The Collection

The Overseas collection, reinvented in 2016, conveys the spirit of travel. This openness to the world, inherited from François Constantin, has remained at the core of the Maison’s philosophy ever since its founding. Designed in a spirit of casual elegance and comfort enhanced by their interchangeable strap/bracelet system, Overseas timepieces are the perfect daily companions.

Zaria Forman is “One of Not Many”

American artist Zaria Forman testifies to the impact of changing landscapes. A committed and uncompromising explorer, she has become the new face of Vacheron Constantin's "One of Not Many“ campaign and embodies the Overseas collection alongside Cory Richards.

Overseas Moon Phase Retrograde Date

The Overseas collection ventures into new territory with its first retrograde display - a Maison’s signature. Combining two essential classical inspirations within a sporty case, this timepiece pairs its retrograde date with a precision moon phase. Beyond the design feat, the "age of the moon" brings a new level of poetry to this elegant watch. It legibly displays the days since the last new moon, precisely reflecting the heavenly body's cycle.

THE ORIGINS OF SPORTY WATCHMAKING

In constant pursuit of innovation, Vacheron Constantin anticipated the emergence of sports watches at the end of the 19th century. It was however, in the 1970s that this trend truly solidified with the birth of the famous reference “222”. Launched in 1977, the watch featured the aesthetic and technical attributes of sports watches and a guaranteed water resistance of up to 120 meters. Since then, this piece, with its radically assertive codes, has never stopped evolving. In 2016, the Overseas collection was reinvented to embark on the discovery of new horizons.

THE RELEVANCE OF FUNCTION

In the spirit of travel, this new generation of timepieces frees itself from excess, keeping only the essential. Comfort, ergonomics and ease of use make this watch a practical and unique piece, ready to satisfy every requirement. Self-winding mechanical movements, a generous power reserve, a soft iron carriage protecting against magnetic disturbances, perfect water resistance of 5 to 15 bar... these calibers also boast remarkable reliability and durability.

VERSATILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE

Each Overseas comes with additional bracelets or straps – steel or precious metal, leather and rubber – interchangeable at will thanks to an ingenious patented device to attach bracelets and folding clasps in seconds. Whether you’re exploring the outer reaches of the Ural mountains or strolling along New York City’s largest avenues, all that matters is the extraordinary pleasure of sporting the right timepiece in every circumstance.

A SIGNATURE UNIVERSAL AESTHETIC

The lines are timeless yet contemporary, standing out among the rest. With an hexagonal bezel evoking the Maltese cross, a fluted crown, polished and satin finishes, and a translucent lacquered dial with faceted and luminescent gold hour markers and hands, total harmony comes at any latitude. The sapphire-crystal-topped case back reveals a 22-carat gold oscillating weight adorned with a compass rose, a symbol of travel and exploration.
