Many people will most likely tell you just how a "sporty Vacheron Constantin" is definitely an oxymoron. It kind of is, however that has not stopped lots of traditional formal watch makers from creating high-finish sport watches meant more for casual put on than actual active abuse. Sometimes I wish to think about an activity watch as something that's designed to go deep, go high, or perhaps be passed. Anything within an 18k rose gold situation by having an alligator strap most likely wouldn't volunteer for those that. On the other hand, pieces such as this best Vacheron Constantin overseas chronograph replica will jump at the opportunity to take a seat on your wrist although you cruise lower a rustic road inside a grand tourer. What, your Sundays aren't like this?
Naturally we all await a rejuvenated form of the Overseas to become launched, we still see slight revisions towards the existing formula trickle away from home of Vacheron. For 2012 we obtain one having a lovely blue dial - making a pleasant contrast with either the steel or rose gold situation in quite the regal manner. Blue called steel sport watches are often observed, however they aren't bad searching whatsoever. Personally nowhere color Vacheron Constantin uses is vibrant and cheerful, with no cheesy electric vibes. The dial from the Overseas Chronograph along with other Overseas models is straightforward in comparison to the style of the situation. It is not bad, however it does not excite me on the chemical level. I believe the hour and minute hands have to be a little longer, and there's a little of room for pizazz. Simultaneously the dial is extremely effective and quite legible. There's just as much Omega Speedmaster DNA within this dial as there's almost 300 many years of watch making history.
Within the AAA Vacheron Constantin Overseas replica with Blue Dial (ref. 49150/B01A-9745) may be the quality 1137 automatic chronograph movement, which is a base Frederic Piguet. That is not an in-house made movement, which for many people defeats the objective of obtaining a Vacheron Constantin to begin with. F. Piguet is nevertheless the high-finish movement making division (also known as Blancpain Manufacture) from the Piece of fabric Group. Let alone the Richemont Group is the owner of Vacheron Constantin, but F. Piguet actions are pretty nice absolutely nothing to complain about. This is among just one or two presently made Vacheron watches using the quality 1137 movement within it.
My personal favorite detail from the Overseas may be the engraving from the old-timey lengthy-distance sailing ship. Whether it's a war or merchant ship, it certainly does espouse the idea to be an "overseas" explorer. It's a nice romantic touch to close the package. Cost with this blue dial version (in steel) from the Vacheron Constantin Overseas will retail for around $20,000. More for that 18k rose gold form of course.
