‘Blue is the new black’… For roughly 2 to 3 years now, we’ve seen numerous watches launched with a blue dial, watches from each brand, each value range and for each utilization. Blue is surely a major pattern (we’re not complaining) yet this tone doesn’t fit each timepiece. In any case, there is one that we know to be wonderful with this color: the Vacheron Constantin Overseas – as seen with the chronograph version . Presently Vacheron Constantin comes with restricted versions of the Overseas Time-Date and Dual-Time with this equivalent blue dial.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas is one of only a handful few watches that can appropriately be known as a very good quality games watch, which means a timepiece that combine a genuine lively inclination and solid feel with a lavish completion, a top of the line development and the ability to be worn likewise with formal attire. The Overseas was dispatched in 1996, with a solid plan that showed a bezel molded like the Maltese cross, the image of the brand. The Vacheron Constantin Overseas pretty much starts from the unbelievable Vacheron Constantin 222 ( as we showed you in our past article here ), a watch brought into the world in 1977 and planned by the young Jorg Hysek. Without straightforwardly supplanting it, the Overseas assortment fills the hole after the stop of the collectible 222.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas exists in a few tastes and with a few complications. Notwithstanding, whatever your decision, it generally comes with this unmistakable 42mm case with incorporated drags and the Maltese cross molded bezel. The assortment incorporates a superb Chronograph Perpetual Calendar , a basic chronograph , a Dual-Time and a straightforward Time-Date. This year, Vahceron Constantin decided to alter the two last ones into restricted versions showing an UltraMarine Blue dial, much the same as the chronograph we explored (even on the off chance that we can’t be certain that the blue utilized in the Limited Editions is precisely the same as in the chronograph). This tone can likewise be found in the tie, as these UltraMarine Blue versions of the Overseas element a decision of two lashes (both included with the watch): a blue elastic and a blue Mississippiensis crocodile cowhide tie, both mounted on a hardened steel triple edge collapsing clasp.
This UltraMarine Blue restricted releases concern two watches of the assortment. The first is the Dual-Time. It includes a fairly complicated development that showed the hours, minutes and seconds on the focal hub, in addition to a force save pointer (at 9), the date in a sub-dial (at 2) and a subsequent time-zone (at 6) with a little day/night marker on the left. It comes with the Caliber 1222, a pleasantly completed development that permits a fast difference in the subsequent time zone by means of a pusher at 2.
The second release with an UltraMarine Blue dial depends on the basic however plain Automatic Time-Date Overseas. It shows the hours, minutes and seconds on the focal hub and a careful date in a gap at 4:30, because of its thin development (3.25mm), the type 1226.
Both are having a similar treated steel case and similar hands and applied hour-markers in 18K gold, loaded up with radiant material. They are water-safe up to 150 meters because of a screwed crown and a strong screwed case-back, stepped with the “Overseas” emblem. The development isn’t appeared for another explanation (as written on the dial): the Overseas watches are antimagnetic gratitude to an iron pen that secures the movement.
The two versions (Time-Date and Dual-Time) are utilizing a similar base type. Because of the shortfall of an additional module, the Time-Date version stays thin at just 9.7mm (while the Dual-Time estimates 12.45mm, clarified by the dual time module added on the highest point of the development). The two versions gloat 40 hours of force reserve.
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Automatic (Time-Date) with UltraMarine Blue dial will be accessible in 350 pieces and evaluated at 13.500 Euros. The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual-TIme with UltraMarine Blue dial will be accessible in 300 pieces and estimated at 19.000 Euros.
