The latest Overseas model from Vacheron Constantin
The eagerly awaited steel, with a titanium bezel, version of the Dual Time
Ever since the launch of the first Overseas in 1996, Vacheron Constantin’s sports line has been constantly enriched with innovative new timepieces. Entirely dedicated to travel as its name implies, the line is based around three best-sellers – Overseas Self-Winding, Overseas Chronograph and Overseas Dual Time – available in steel, gold and steel/titanium versions. Vacheron Constantin is now rounding off the Dual Time range, with its useful complication greatly appreciated by regular travellers, by introducing a steel with a titanium bezel variation.
Titanium, the ideal metal for travel
An extremely light metal that is resistant to corrosion, erosion and fire, titanium was initially used in the fields of aeronautical, aerospace, chemical and medical industries, and more recently in watchmaking, which has chosen it for its contemporary character, its bold and original appearance, as well as for its minimal weight entirely in tune with the needs of technical and sporty Haute Horlogerie.
