This summer Vacheron Constant has launched two new models for its Overseas collection, the Overseas Automatic and the Overseas Automatic Chronograph. These two feature a monochramtic grey theme with finely brushed stainless steel cases and anthracite titanium bezels. The models are re-interpretations of previous Vacheron watches produced way back in 1933 and 1977. Both of these watches feature a large 42 mm stainless steel cases and the titanium bezel shaped as a continuation of the Maltese Cross symbol that is the hallmark of the brand. Both have slate colored dials with baton shaped hands and silver wedge-shaped hour markers treated with a luminous coating for superior legibility even in low-light conditions. The watches feature screw-down winding crowns and screw-locked engraved case-back. The supberb structure of these models allow for water resistant up to 150 meters, equivalent to 15 ATM.

The new titanium Overseas watches have an automatic movement, with the Automatic is driven by the 1226 calibre and the Automatic Chronograph by the 1137 caliber. Both are magnetically shielded. The Overseas Chronograph Caliber 1137 has a balance frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, a 40-hour power reserve, and measure independent intervals of time with 1/6th second precision. The Overseas Automatic 1226 caliber has a date display and central sweep seconds with a stop function. Both Overseas timepieces come with a grey alligator leather strap and a rubber strap. The stainless steel buckle has a triple-deployant with the Maltese Cross.

Fantastic models! Besides the great features, both are good-looking watches also.
