When you think international travel you should immediately think Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time Watch. An exquisite wearable timepiece with the two time zone display, a slim profile, affordable and quite the magnificent caliber. A true travelers dream, the brand that started in 1755 knows about quality workmanship and designs that are truly remarkable.
The brand that originated in Geneva, Switzerland changed hands many times over the years but still has never wavered in their excellence for precision timepieces in the 262 year history of production. Many of the watches in the previous collections were also cost prohibitive for the majority, but the Overseas line is not only cost effective, but a must for travelers. The dial on this model is designed with central hour, minute, and second hands for local time, then the fourth hand that is distinguished with a red arrow indicates the additional timezone or your home zone.
The timepiece is crafted with the am/pm indicator at 9 o’clock, which easily allows the wearer to tell daytime or nighttime at their home zone. There is a dedicated screw-lock pusher at 4 o’clock that can be set and linked to local time and is paired with the pointer-style date sub-dial at 6 o’clock. Utilization of the crown advances local time in one-hour steps at first position or you can drag the adjustment of both time zone hours and minutes in the second position. Someone that travels between time zones will find this function quick and easy, allowing for easy date changes as well without interference of either of the time displays.
Currently there are three versions of the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time Watch. Two versions cased in steel, with choices of a rich blue dial or an elegant silvery white one. The choices of a matching steel bracelet, an alligator leather strap, or a rubber strap are available with color options on those as well. There are blue and black versions, each complimenting the dial face, obviously the blue is quite attractive on the blue dial and black brings a classy look to the silvery-white dial. The third version is an 18k 5N pink gold case, finished with a brown leather band and screams elegant and refined.
Each of the models feature a manufacture caliber 5110DT which looks perfect in the case and features 234 components, 37 jewels and is oscillating at 28,800vph.
