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
. 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.
