Introducing: The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding With New Caliber 5100
For genuine watch aficionados there’s essentially nothing more intriguing than the dispatch of another movement, and Vacheron Constantin has recently presented a fresh out of the plastic new self-twisting movement in an Overseas case; it’ll be offered in either treated steel or 18k pink gold. This is an in-house movement, Vacheron type 5100, beating at 28,800 vph, with two fountainhead barrels and a 60 hour power reserve.
The movement has a 22k gold load for the programmed winding framework, and the watch is water impervious to 150 meters. Perhaps the most prominent highlights of the watch is that it’s being delivered, in tempered steel, with two ties and a treated steel wristband, and they’re tradable. The pink gold model comes with a calfskin tie, just as an elastic tie. Dials are in sunburst blue or silver, and the two models are confirmed by the Hallmark of (Geneva Seal). No word yet on valuing except for we’ll be refreshing you, obviously, when we get the word.
