The new Overseas collection was announced in aplomb in SIHH 2016 with a collection spanning a three hand time only automatic, a chronograph, a small model, an ultra thin, and an ultra thin perpetual calendar. Quite remarkable. During our tête-à-tête with Vacheron Constantin CEOJuan-Carlos Torres in SIHH 2016, we remarked that the Overseas collection is intended for travel, and yet they deleted the only watch which is designed specifically for travel – the Overseas Dual Time. To which he replied, “We’ll do better!”. And with a sparkle in his eye, pulled it out the (then yet unannounced) Overseas World Time to show us. Our jaws dropped, but our lips were sealed. Until now. The embargo just lifted (9am Geneva time, May 10, 2016). We spent some hours later exploring and photographing the new Overseas World Time, and here are our views.
