Coming to SIHH next year, the traveler-dedicated Overseas dual time watch flaunts a distinctive six-sided bezel inspired by the emblematic Maltese cross; in-house movements designed for smooth and easy handling; an oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose, interchangeable bracelet/straps: Overseas embodies a modern lifestyle resolutely open to the wider world. This Overseas dual time timekeeper joins the adventure equipped with the eponymous function representing a complication much favored by globetrotters.
The travel function
The Overseas dual time model is designed to ensure reliable yet elegant wear in every circumstances. Its new mechanical self-winding movement, Vacheron Constantin Caliber 5110 DT, stems from several years of development and enables simultaneous reading of the two time-zones by means of coaxial hands. The hours hand indicates the local time-zone corresponding to the user’s current location, while the hand tipped with a triangular arrow shows the time in a reference time-zone, generally known as “home time”. A 12-hour display, adjustable via the crown in both directions (position 1: local time, independent jumping adjustment; position 2: home time, dragging adjustment of both time-zones and minutes), along with a day/night indication set to home time, and a pointer-type date display, adjusted and secured via a screw-lock pusher at 4 o’clock and synchronized with local time. This 234- component movement oscillates at a frequency of 4 Hz and has a comfortable 60-hour power reserve thanks to its twin barrel that also ensures its regularity.
