After a steel version in 2019, the Overseas tourbillon model now appears attired in 18K 5N pink gold. A tourbillon, a blue lacquered dial with a sunburst satin finish and an interchangeable bracelet/strap system accompany this material that is both refined and modern – two principles deeply cherished by the Maison.
This new model, presented at Watches & Wonders 2021, is part of the theme of the Maison for 2021 : entitled Classic with a Twist, it highlights Vacheron Constantin’s creative energy, guided by an identity that celebrates a heritage and dares to deliver the unexpected. This new pink gold version highlights more than 265 years of watchmaking tradition passed on from generation to generation within the workshops of the Manufacture. It testifies to the care devoted by the Maison to producing extremely complicated watches with unfailing care for technical detail and reliability – as exemplified in calibre 2160, an ultra-thin tourbillon movement measuring just 5.65 mm thick.
This new Overseas tourbillon timepiece exudes elegance in every situation. Its sleekly sophisticated design stems from the dynamic and harmonious lines of its 18K 5N pink gold case and its hexagonal bezel suggesting the shape of the Maltese cross. The precious 42.5 mm case frames an emblematic blue lacquered dial with a sunburst satin finish reflecting a resolutely urban spirit. In addition to its deep hue specifically developed for the collection, it is distinguished by the richness of its details: a sunburst finish accentuated by elegant light effects, 18K 5N pink gold hour-markers and hands, all beautifully matching the interchangeable bracelet/straps.
The watch can be worn as desired with a 18K 5N pink gold bracelet or a strap in blue Mississippiensis alligator leather or blue rubber. The leather and rubber straps each come with an 18K 5N pink gold pin buckle. No tools are required for these smooth and easy swaps. This simple and reliable interchangeability concept developed by the Maison enables a true sense of controlled originality.
