Introducing: The Vacheron Constantin Overseas World Time (Exclusive Live Pics, Official Pricing, & Availability)
What you have here is Vacheron’s magnificent world-time type, first appeared at SIHH 2011, and again altogether platinum in 2014 , in an energetic, steel case. What has consistently made VC’s reality clock so extraordinary is that it is the most complete there is, with an entire 37 diverse time regions, and that incorporates those that are off-set by a half or quarter hour!
With respect to that delightful focus ring? We’ll allow Vacheron to advise it: “The middle highlights a ‘Lambert’ projection map portraying the mainlands (upgraded by a sunburst silk brushed completion) and the seas (in a velvet completion), alongside a clear lacquered circle bearing the city names. A third sapphire plate laid over the guide gives day/night signs by methods for inconspicuously evaluated smoky colors, synchronized with the 24-hour circle. At long last, a clear lacquered velvet-completed external ring serves to demonstrate the hours and minutes.”
The instance of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas World Time is 43.5 mm in distance across by 12.6 mm thick. Goodness, and it’s water impervious to 150 meters, and even highlights a delicate iron enemy of magnetic ring.
Caliber 2460WT is obviously self-winding, and the rotor is made of 22k rose gold. The whole thing is made in-house by Vacheron Constantin (normally), and the 36.6 type offers 40 hours of force hold, beating at 4 Hz, with 255 components. The entire watch, all around, is simply flawlessly completed, and truth be told the watch is Geneva trademark certified.
Now, this being essential for the new Overseas assortment, it would be delinquent in the event that it didn’t offer what is doubtlessly quite possibly the most discussed tie frameworks over the most recent couple of years. Indeed, this new Overseas comes with three unique choices – an elastic tie, croc tie, and a steel bracelet.
The most amazing aspect about the new Overseas World Time coming with three unique choices, is that it’s astoundingly easy to trade them out dependent on state of mind, outfit, or impulse. Everything necessary is a squeeze between the hauls and it’s done.
One thing to note is that when you have a steel watch from a brand like Vacheron, the unseen details are the main problem – it’s about case and wristband completing similarly however much it is about feel and development quality. The arm band here, I can say in the wake of wearing it for quite a while, is totally comparable to the absolute best in the business – I would, only for the good of comparison, love to put this wristband close to that of a Royal Oak and a 5711 Nautilus to perceive what’s what.
The little subtleties – the crown, the clasp, and so on – on this new World Time are similarly very much done. Look at the high cleaned Maltese cross on the elastic lash, and crown working on it side. Unexpectedly, it is significant that this current Vacheron’s reality time component is set completely from the crown – no pushers here.
The new Vacheron Overseas World Time is cased only in hardened steel and will be offered in three diverse dial alternatives: silver, blue, and earthy colored. The whole watch is Geneva seal guaranteed, demonstrating the best expectations of both development and case completing and assembly.
While this new VC isn’t dainty on the wrist, the 43.5 mm distance across isn’t hostile, particularly when you consider that this watch is expected to be worn consistently, while in a hurry, and in moderately easygoing conditions. Would I have enjoyed it to be somewhat more modest and more slender? Certainly, however when isn’t that the situation? Likewise, VC actually makes this type inside the more formal Tradionelle at 42.5 mm, offering a completely unique look.
Pricing for the new Vacheron Overseas World Time will be $37,000 and conveyance should start pre-fall or late-summer so you will not need to stand by too long. Be that as it may, in view of what we’re hearing, this one will be hot, so on the off chance that you need to get one, I’d recommend calling your AD now.
