MINI SIZE, MAXI EFFECT
Through these versions, the manufacture invites to discover mixed and resolutely feminine alternatives that are totally in tune with the times. When versatility goes hand-in-hand with classical elegance.
The 2023 edition of Watches & Wonders had a host of surprises in store. And the novel Overseas collection variations did indeed amaze! In short, Vacheron Constantin unveiled references boasting never-seen-before sizes with four pieces fashioned with 34.5 mm and 35 mm cases crafted in rose gold or steel. Even though these watches are smaller than their older siblings, they flaunt all the must-haves inherent to this sporty-chic range. The hour and minute hands on the sunburst-blue or –pink lacquered dials hover over an hour chapter featuring only indexes. A date is center staged at 3 o’clock. The scenography pursues an understated look and time data reading is perfect.
All the models are equipped with the 1088/1 caliber that integrates a stop-seconds device for setting time precisely. This self-winding movement, assembled using some 144 components, delivers a power reserve of 40 hours. The sapphire-crystal caseback invites to delight in the traditional Côtes de Genève decorations and the finishes engraved on the yellow gold oscillating weight adorned with the iconic windrose. These models are worn on a bracelet that matches the case metal. The quick-change system offers owners the opportunity to replace the bracelet with an alternative calfskin or rubber strap anytime, anywhere. Worth a mention, two of these timepieces stand out with their bezel set with 90 brilliant-cut diamonds (0.86 carats). When elegance dazzles.
