Pre-SIHH 2018: Introducing the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time (with Original Photos) Replica Buyers Guide
This really is a great time to discuss the outgoing generation Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph, which was really a bit more distinctive. It didn’t have exactly the same sort of manufacture movement, and it was a bit more straightforward overall but the more aerodynamic case and easy to comprehend bracelet were arguably greater than the newer version. Going back into the case, the more recent Overseas is more tonneau-style in shape, whereas the older version was not as “lengthy,” which benefited the look while the watch is being worn on the metal bracelet. Thus, even though the more recent Overseas is an update in many ways, the new larger Overseas Chronograph might have lost a bit of their visual mojo that made the collection have its distinctive charm.In terms of dimensions the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph 5500V household is 42.5mm wide (versus 42mm of their older generation) and 13.7mm thick (versus 12.45mm of the elderly generation). The situation remains water resistant to 150m and includes a sapphire crystal on the top and underside. The additional thickness especially makes for a rather large sized luxury sports opinion. The three-hand Overseas Simple Date is easily the better option if the thickness is significant to you. If you’d like a luxury sports opinion and need something quite large, then the Overseas Chronograph is the right option for you. Given that I have a tendency to associate these “high society” steel sports watches as being appreciated for their thin profile then, in my estimation, the thickness of the Overseas Chronograph makes for a cool looking watch, although not a particularly genteel-feeling watch.The coolest trick that Vacheron Constantin taught the Overseas was how to swap the strap and bracelet. The Overseas now includes a tool-less strap elimination system, combined with three strap/bracelet options per watch. This includes the matching steel bracelet, an alligator strap, along with a high-quality rubber strap. Spoiler alert – I discovered that the rubber strap to be both the greatest looking and the most comfortable.
