Vacheron Constantin’s focus at SIHH 2017 was quite clearly on its high watchmaking endeavours, as seen in the Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600, Copernicus celestial spheres 2460 RT and, of course not forgetting, the Symphonia Grande Sonnerie 1860. Vastly different from what was 2016’s focus for the maison, a much more commercial collection of watches, which was the redesigned Overseas line-up.
The last we heard about the Overseas, though, was quite possibly the announcement of the Overseas Worldtime and Vacheron Constantin’s collaboration with award-winning photographer, Steve McCurry, which saw the collection and its story brought around to important landmarks across the world.
Now, a quarter into 2017, Vacheron Contantin has seen it fit to revisit their star collection from 2016, with four new additions. These are technically watches that were already part of the collection, but the particular iterations are all fresh.
