Vacheron Constantin Overseas Ladies
Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
The Holy Trinity of watch brands: Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin.
Far less understood than either of its respected compatriots, Vacheron Constantin has a legacy of producing some of the very finest haute horlogerie complications in history — and some of the loveliest.
Sports watches came later to VC, as pressure from the new ‘luxury sport watch’ category introduced in the early 1970s forced the storied maison to evolve. Its entry came in the form of the 222, whose design language inspired the current Overseas collection. The Overseas models compete with other watches such as the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, IWC Ingenieur, and Piaget Polo, and often find favor by merit of design, value, and variety of complications.
This particular example, an Overseas Reference 1205V/100A-B590, is a quartz-powered ladies model. Housed in a 33mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and a signed crown, it features an incredible, diamond-encrusted Maltese Cross-style bezel that’s sure to turn heads from across the room! A luminous sunburst blue dial with a matching handset, and a date window at 3:00 is joined by an integrated, stainless steel bracelet with a signed, hidden deployant clasp, while a Calibre 1207 quartz movement from Vacheron completes the package.
Accompanied by its factory goodies — including additional leather and rubber straps — this is a stunning ladies model from one of the Holy Trinity of watch companies. Elegant and beautiful, it’s a work of versatile, wearable horological art.
This expertise carried them through the 19th century, earning gold medals at National Exhibitions and blazing trails in the area of anti-magnetic timepieces. The 20th century saw further achievements, such as the opening of its boutique on the Quai de L’Ile in Geneva, where it still resides today. Even through the Depression and the Second World War, when many watch companies were forced to band together with competitors or else face closure, the manufacture continued to thrive—as it does to this day.
