DESCRIPTION

  • OVERSEAS BY VACHERON CONSTANTIN: A CONTEMPORARY SPIRIT FOR A STORIED DESIGN.

    ITS SOPHISTICATED CONSTRUCTION AND RESISTANCE TO MAGNETIC FIELDS UNDERSCORE THE POWERFUL PERSONALITY OF THIS STORIED DESIGN. CONCEIVED IN THE SPIRIT OF THE AGE, THE SECOND-GENERATION OVERSEAS COMBINES DISCRETION AND SELF-ASSURED GOOD LOOKS.

    Whispering of distant horizons and faraway places, the Overseas design suggests worlds to discover and opportunities to explore, as befits a true legend in time.

    Introduced in 1996, the Overseas design by Vacheron Constantin instantly made its mark with utter distinction, quickly winning recognition as one of the most accomplished timepieces in its class. Its crisp, stylish lines and functional efficiency compose a powerful personality that sets a unchallenged standard for timekeeping excellence.

    In 2004, updated with a variety of discreet yet significant features, a new Overseas generation appeared. It both perpetuated its predecessor’s unique character and confirmed the design’s enduring relevance. Wedding dependable sturdiness to understated elegance, the new design fully reaffirmed the Overseas’ sporting spirit.

    Impeccably functional in every respect, the Overseas design sealed an alliance between superlative watchmaking and the spirit of the age. The new generation naturally perpetuates the inspired blend of technology and aesthetics born in 1996, this time with even more smoothly flowing lines and dimensions increased by a few millimeters for all three versions – chronograph, man’s and woman’s models.

    Its construction underscores the Overseas’ coolly assertive personality.  A sturdy case in the finest stainless steel expresses the design’s confirmed resilience. Its bezel, featuring a Maltese cross pattern derived from the make’s long-standing symbol, and case back are screwed tightly to the frame, compressing numerous watertightness gaskets so as to provide efficient protection against moisture and the most minute particles of foreign matter. This constructional approach provides full water resistance to 150 meters (approx. 500 feet) for the man’s and chronograph models and 50 meters (nearly 165 feet) for the woman’s. Screw-locked setting crowns and chronograph pushpieces complete the watches’ external protection systems. Inside the case, the movement benefits from equally efficient protection. Mechanical or quartz, every Overseas movement is totally shielded by a soft-iron antimagnetic screen. The latter prevents today’s innumerable magnetic fields from affecting the movement’s rate and precision.

    Totally redesigned for ergonomic excellence, the new Overseas bracelet provides unprecedented suppleness and comfort on the wrist. Easy to adjust, it comes with a newly designed three-ply invisible clasp with twin safety catch. The exclusive design  of its links and its meticulous finish give the bracelet its arresting good looks that enhance the play of light along its entire length. Featuring an exclusive decor, Overseas dials and hands are coated with a luminescent substance for optimum legibility at all times.

    The latest Overseas generation comes in three versions, all in fine stainless steel dress. The case’s screw-secured back bears the collection emblem, a sailing ship carved directly into the metal – a discreet invitation to explore endless horizons and distant shores.

    OVERSEAS CHRONOGRAPH

    Expressing its sleekly functional elegance in alternately gloss-polished and satin-finished steel, the Overseas chronograph case’s 42-mm diameter opens on a broad, easy-to-read dial. Providing a power reserve of 40 hours, its caliber 1137 selfwinding mechanical movement comprises the carefully selected and meticulously finished components that are the hallmark of all Vacheron Constantin movements. A soft-iron antimagnetic screen shields the movement from magnetic perturbations.  The case’s screw-locked crown and pushpieces, the latter fitted with a knurled locking nut, are designed for full protection against external hazards. Built to withstand pressures equivalent to 150 meters (nearly 500 feet) under water, the Overseas chronograph remains perfectly legible even in dim light thanks to the highly luminous compound coating the hour markers and hands of its dial, available in a choice of silvered or black finish. Along with the hours, minutes and seconds, it features two totalizers, to 30 minutes and 12 hours respectively, along with an oversized date calendar in twin apertures at 12 o’clock on the dial.

    NONMAGNETIC HOROLOGY:  A CONSTANT CONCERN FOR VACHERON CONSTANTIN, WHOSE PIONEERING RESEARCH INTO ANTIMAGNETIC PROTECTION FOR WATCHES GOES BACK OVER 160 YEARS.


    Designed to the finest and latest standards of functional performance, every version of the new Overseas design incorporates efficient protection against magnetic hazards. Whether its movement is mechanical or quartz electronic, an Overseas will thus retain its exceptional precision unaffected by the numerous magnetic fields found everywhere today.

    Every version of the new Overseas is totally encapsulated with a three-part, soft-iron antimagnetic screen. The magnetic protection standard adopted by Vacheron Constantin ranks among watchmaking’s most stringent, providing a dependable shield against potential magnetic perturbations and ensuring in this way that it maintains a reliably regular operating rate.

    The exceptional protection against magnetic fields built into the new Overseas generation has its roots in the Vacheron Constantin company’s longstanding interest in protecting timepieces against such hazards, as befits the world’s oldest  full-fledged watch manufacturer in uninterrupted operation since its foundation in 1755. In 1846, the Geneva-based company was the first to devise a watch impervious to magnetic influence by fitting it with a balance spring, balance wheel and lever crafted in a special bronze alloy. Its watchmakers tested palladium balance springs in 1862, the year that saw Vacheron Constantin join the Association for Research into Nonmagnetic Materials.

    In 1885, Vacheron Constantin built the first watch bearing its name that incorporated a complete lever assortment designed to withstand magnetic fields:  its balance wheel, balance spring and lever shaft were made of palladium while the lever arms were fashioned in bronze and the escape wheel in gold.

    Vacheron Constantin’s interest in the design of watches capable of resisting magnetic fields continued throughout the 20th century. Building on its reputation, its watchmakers designed and, from 1954 to 1959, built a chronometer so resistant to magnetic fields that it was the wrist instrument of choice for many knowledgeable engineers in electrotechnics. Fitted inside a round case with screwed-in back and watertight pushpieces, its 13-line movement beating at 18,800 v.p.h. was protected by a soft-iron hood shielding it from magnetic fields.

    CODE NAME: 222
    OVERSEAS: ORIGINS THAT GO BACK TO THE NINETEEN SEVENTIES


    THE ORIGINAL SPORTS WATCH CONCEPT INSPIRING VACHERON CONSTANTIN’S NEW OVERSEAS DESIGN GOES BACK TO THE NINETEEN SEVENTIES. IT WAS THEN THAT ITS WATCHMAKERS INTRODUCED TWO MODELS THAT WERE TO PUT THEIR STAMP ON THE LUXURY SPORTS WATCH SEGMENT OF THE MARKET.

    Launched in 1975, the Chronomètre Royal wristwatch design foreshadowed the development of a genuinely sport-tempered dress watch, available in stainless steel as well as in yellow and in white gold. Fitted with a screwed-in case back for dependable water resistance to 30 meters (~ 100 feet) and equipped with a proprietary movement entirely assembled, finished and adjusted by hand, the design embodied a full measure of the reliability and sturdiness that underpin Vacheron Constantin’s constructional quality standards. 

    It was, however, in 1977, with the launch of a model that was to make history, that Vacheron Constantin signalled it had definitely established itself the upper reaches of sports watches. Its code name, “222”, referred to the fact that the watch marked the 222nd anniversary of the company’s foundation. As an excerpt from a document of the time put it: “Vacheron Constantin has introduced a functional, exclusive model to commemorate its own age. This code name masks a heart of gold: a caliber 1121 movement driven by its rotor in 21K gold, an extra-thin selfwinding design with shock protection. Born from the heart of the matter, noblest steel or purest gold, the 222 is entirely crafted by hand. Exclusive in form and function, it is designed for those who confront the realities of today.”

    Reliability, form and function: the Vacheron Constantin standard of reference defined in three words... Conceived and built in accordance with corporate standards of design and technology, the 222 was a distinguished forerunner in style and spirit of today’s Overseas design. Its case was a sophisticated one-piece construction opened by a screwed-in, porthole-type bezel and designed for intensive use under trying conditions. From a strictly aesthetic point of view, its serrated bezel directly referred to a  model dating from1951. Along with an integrated bracelet, the 222 featured a luminous dial and hour markers providing perfect legibility through a glareproofed sapphire crystal, plus a crown with twin protective gaskets. Crafted in gold, in steel or in both metals (see photo), the 222 was water-resistant to 120 meters (nearly 400 feet). The case furthermore included a protective antimagnetic screen, an unusual feature for the period.

    Clean lines, serrated bezel, distinctive bracelet and utterly functional construction – all features that confirm the design precedents linking today’s Overseas with the Vacheron Constantin timepieces which in 1951, 1975 and again in 1977 foreshadowed its own development.
