In continued expansion of the Overseas collection, Vacheron Constantin now presents yet another new dial option.
In the last round of additions, the maison added a two-tone collection of watches, which you can read about, here.
This time round, the new pieces are all steel and contained within the time-only and chronograph versions of the Overseas line up.
Keeping all other technical specifications a constant — movements, case dimension, etc. — the two new pieces now come with black dials. These will be offered in addition to the previous dial options: blue, brown and silver.
While a new dial isn’t much to get all excited about, it has to be said that black as an option has been a long time coming. Given the sporty, utilitarian outlook of the Overseas many are bound to be drawn to the dark dial, in line with wanting a stealth factor.
As has been the case with all of the Overseas watches, these new variations, too, will have Vacheron Constantin’s quick swap mechanism for you to easily change out the bracelet to a strap, on the go. As such, they will, also, come with the leather and rubber straps that has been a staple for the collection thus far.
