Vacheron Constantin has debuted this beautiful Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Skeleton 18k Rose Gold Watch with quite the reception. The appeal for this timepiece is based on the high end construction and legacy of the brand with a more down to earth approach on pricing and humility. Featuring a deep blue-accented skeletonized dial and beautiful 18k rose gold case, the watch is 41.5mm wide and extremely thin at 8.1mm high. While not the thinnest watch, it does come packed with power. Everyone is obsessed with the beauty and enticed by the workmanship.
The timepiece is powered by the Constantin caliber 1120 QPSQ/1 automatic movement. While many will just look at the functional aspect, the aesthetics are what is most impressive. Comprised of 275 parts and operating at 2.75Hz, the overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin skeleton watch has a mainspring barrel that provides 40 hours of power reserve. The delicate skeletonization is quite a feat of artistic craftsmanship, and the owner can admire the movement on the design. The timepiece is water resistant up to 50 meters and as everyone knows that doesn’t mean take a swim with your watch, but shower or do the dishes and you should be fine.
One of the design elements for the watch is the interchangeable strap system and allows you to choose a 18k 5N pink gold bracelet, calfskin leather, or rubber strap. While many will opt for the gold bracelet, as it brings the elegance and refined beauty, many other will choose the comfort of the calfskin, as well as the breathability, and another group will want that rubber strap for durability and day to day endurance. Every choice for the strap is made by your lifestyle and what options are a perfect fit for you. The polished and brushed case with the sapphire crystal both front and back is truly spectacular. The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Skeleton 18k Rose Gold Watch features a hardy case, making it durable to cracks and scratches. Dropping it will not damage the beautiful timepiece, and due to the transparency of the sapphire it allows you to see the dial and know it is protected. There is an anti-reflective coating to help with glare and of course the hours and minutes hands are coated with luminescence so readability is excellent. The coating also allows for photoluminescence and allows the surrounding light to more of less power the coating so you can see the glow for quite some time. The dial does not have a second indicator, but does have the perpetual calendar display with month, date and moonphase.
A BEGINNING WITH AN END
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Skeleton 18k Rose Gold Watch is quite a beauty offering exquisite aesthetics and attractive movement, as well as a choice of straps for you to blend your lifestyle. From elegant to adventurous the dress watch provides sport and sophistication with each choice. So from beginning to end, the timepiece is a wonderful piece that is versatile and vivacious.
