Vacheron Constantin has just revealed a new addition to their 2016 Overseas collection, which, considering the collection’s theme and point of inspiration, is possibly the most apt addition yet.

At 43.5mm, the Overseas World Time is a steel-cased watch, fitted with Vacheron’s caliber 2460 WT. The movement enables the watch to track a total of 37 cities, with 13 cities that represent timezones, which are offset by 15 and 30 minutes. These cities are marked in an alternate color from the remaining names, making for easy differentiation from those that are commonly found on world time watches.

The map of the northern hemisphere on the center of the dial is a combination of sunburst satin-finished continents along with velvet-finished oceans. Thereafter a sapphire disc is used to hold the city names and a separate overlaying sapphire disc is used for the 24-hour, day/night indication.

As it has been the standard with the Overseas collection this year, the Overseas World Time comes with a set of three bracelets (steel, rubber and leather), which can easily be swapped on and off using Vacheron’s new strap release mechanism – essentially an easy release catch that detaches the strap from the watch case.

Lastly, the watch will be made available in three dial variations: blue, brown and silver – each version delivered with rubber and leather straps in complementing colors.

All this and more, now live on
