This is an iteration of a VC sports watch which I really like... time will tell if/when this prototype makes it to some level of production for sale.

A titanium/tantalum dual time with 150m WR, 41mm case, 12.8mm thick, with tantalum accents providing the darker gray elements about the bezel and crowns (crown at 4:00 screws down and advanced date), with VC quick change strap mechanism and fabric, titanium and rubber straps made. The watch with fabric strap with orange stitching to match the dial/GMT hands is awesome looking and masculine. Too bad I am not a National Geographic photographer/climber... (for whom the prototype was made). [Photos from professionalwatches.com and watchcollectinglifestyle.com] Intuitive way to read GMT as well.









PURISTPRO SE?!!!!

1 vote right now for VC to make the time only version of this watch and NO DATE. Amanico, make this happen!!! I love love love the look of this piece.

I certainly would support a puristspro edition of this dual time overseas proto. Do we have a VC moderator? [nt]

With a little adjustment in diameter I'd be in, haha! [nt]

With that matching fabric strap one of my favorite Overseas variants ever made. And the Overseas is in general my third favorite wristwatch smile. Cheers, Filip

it should give ideas to the VC designers

This pièce unique clearly shows that the Overseas with a textured dial and applied indexed can become a real touchdown. The current lacquered dials are nicely executed but are a bit boring in my opinion (think of the few RO models which do not have a tapisserie dial and face the same issue). 

With such an evolution of the dial (and possibly of the hands), the Overseas could finally become the real contender of the RO. 

All the best,

Nicolas


Thanks for sharing!

It’s an attractive prospect!

But VC has to correct the design flows !
First make the tree and nine indicators equal, if you must have an am-pm indicator.
Second make the date ring smaller so that it doesn’t cut into the hour/minute chapter . After that I’m all in !!!

I actually quite like the asymmetry.

Makes it more interesting in person than the pictures suggest. This is a clever implementation of a GMT function, as being a 12-hour hand, the home time arrow hand is hidden under the local hour hand except when traveling. The AM/PM indicator is of the instantaneous jump variety (at noon and midnight) unlike the creeping day/night indicators in other implementations, so that's another interesting small complication. Finally, I thought the large date ring was a big plus when I first saw the watch in person as the date legibility is superb, at least for us over-50 types smile . I have not been a fan of VC or their pricing in recent years (or for that mater most recent Swiss watches), but I thought this version of the Overseas nails it in all dial varieties. It is interesting in that it doesn't regurgitate the countless GMT designs we have all previously seen and the case/bracelet work is superb, as is the quick strap change mechanism.

Now we’re talking!

This elevates the new Overseas DT which I already have a soft corner for.

Great looking watch. Thanks for sharing.

Best, V.

I‘m in.

Takes the Overseas into a more sporty or tool direction while retaining all the good qualities. I‘d go for this one instantly. Love the fabric strap!

My only concern: is the Home Time hand completly hiding beneath the hour hand? It seems the arrow is wider than the hour hand. If this is the case I‘m not sure how that looks.

Thanks for delivering this pièce unique to us!
