26 DECADES OF WATCHMAKING
Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watchmaking manufacture. In continuous operation for over 260 years, Vacheron is a forced to be reckoned with, belonging to the “Holy Trinity” of watch making. At the forefront of high horology and flawless sophistication, unique timepieces are crafted. Quality and precision. To wear one is to share history.
A paradigm shift occurred in the watch industry in the 1970’s. A new market sector emerged. Luxury sport watches. The Vacheron Constantin 222 was launched in 1977, the brands answer to the world. The predecessor to the modern-day Overseas.
The Overseas was born from centuries of experience. Fashioned out of stainless steel and water resistant to 150 meters. Screw locked crown and case back. Double safety clatch bracelet clasp. Purposeful, designed to weather any challenge.
In 1996 Vacheron Constantin launched the Overseas. More than just a Luxury sport watch. The Overseas aimed to satisfying global travelers. To this day, those values are still upheld.
The Overseas is built around a tonneau shaped case, its dynamic lines extend into the integrated bracelet perfectly. The modern bracelet is optimized for comfort. Resembling the Maltese cross, similar to that of the bezel.
