OVERSEAS DUAL TIME EVEREST
REACH THE HEIGHTS
Discover far-distant horizons, broaden your mind with elsewheres. For all your personal and professional projects, the Geneva watchmaker accompanies you with this reference cut out for travel.
In 2019, Vacheron Constantin punctuated the adventures of photographer and explorer Cory Richards with a one-of-a-kind piece, a prototype equipped with a second time zone. Two years later, the manufacture proposes this association for its new 150-piece limited series, Overseas Dual Time “Everest”. On a grained-finished gray-blue dial, a third orange-hued tapered hand completes the traditional pair of hands dedicated to the hours and minutes. A day/night indicator, “AM/PM”, at 9 o’clock synchronizes with the reference time. A date in a disc features at 6 o’clock. A screwed pusher nestling at 4 o’clock offers fast, easy adjustment. This scenescape is protected by a 41 mm-diameter steel case, waterproof to a depth of 150 meters, and topped with a titanium bezel.
All the time data is driven by the 5110 DT/2 caliber. This selfwinding movement offers the watch 60-hours autonomy. The sapphire-crystal caseback invites to admire the rose gold oscillating weight, engraved with our planet’s highest mountain.
To assert its sporty personality, the Overseas Dual Time “Everest” is comes complete with a Cordura® textile strap adorned with orange overstitching and attached by a folding clasp. The box set also includes a gray rubber strap. What’s more, the manufacturing quality of this piece meets Poinçon de Genève (Hallmark of Geneva) requirements.
