Last January, directly from the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie of Geneva, we provided an overview of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection , composed of five different models and 12 references.
We start currently presenting each model more in detail, the first being the three-gave model, identified by reference 4500V, which houses the automatic development Caliber 5100.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Caliber 5100 – displaying hours, minutes, focal seconds, and date functions – is proposed in a 41 mm x 11 mm case in stainless steel or pink gold. The steel case can be coordinated to a silver-conditioned or sunburst-blue dial while the pink gold version is just available with a silver-conditioned dial.
All dials have a clear treatment with a satin-finished base and velvet-finished rib and are improved by gold hour-markers and hours and minutes hands, highlighted with white luminescent material.
The new Caliber 5100 is entirely designed, created and made by Vacheron Constantin and is composed of 172 sections. Beating at 28,800 vibrations each hour, it offers a 60-hour power hold ensured by its twin barrels.
The straightforward screwed-down caseback uncovers the 22K gold oscillating weight embellished with a wind rose. Certified by the Hallmark of Geneva, the three-gave Overseas is water-resistant to 150 meters and anti-magnetic gratitude to the delicate iron ring surrounding its development.
The bends of the instance of the new Overseas are flawlessly integrated with the wristband or tie which, thanks an interchangeability device, can be easily changed.
The steel versions come with three interchangeable wristband/lashes – a stainless steel arm band with a simple fit sizing framework just as two ties in elastic and calfskin respectively – which make the watch versatile to all occasions.
The pink gold version is fitted with an earthy colored alligator cowhide tie and comes with a second tie in earthy colored elastic. All lashes are equipped with an interchangeable folding catch.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas in stainless steel (ref. 4500V/110A-B126 with silver-conditioned dial or
ref. 4500V/110A-B128 with blue dial) has a price of Euro 21,800/US$ 19,900 while the pink gold version (ref.4500V/000R-B127) is Euro 38,900/US$ 39,600. vacheron-constantin.com
