Vacheron Constantin Overseas Heure du Monde

Today, I had the joy to meet up with a friend who came with his new watch. This is the second time I have a VC on my wrist

It is a very interesting watch, a little too big for my wrist in 43.5 but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised, especially by the rubber strap. This quick strap change system is also simply fantastic.

If (!) they made it that small....

… they would have to completely redo the layout, from outside in: cities, 24 hour ring and second track to make it legible. Just like the current Breitling Navitimer 8 B35 Automatic Unitime 43!

And that...

It’s a true beauty with a wonderful complication,

but the large size is not for everyone

I had this watch for a few months but I could not get attached to it and got rid of it...

I think the legibility was an issue for me as well as the fact that I could tell you what the time was in Samoa but had to look at my phone for the date (I am terrible remembering the date!). Great watch though and great strap changing system. ...  

Still don’t understand

How to read the time on those but it looks magnificent

at 6 o'clock you can read your local time for the city chosen. this is the exact same time as the regular hands

and then you can have the time in the different countries you can read on the dial with the hour. for example LONDON was 6 PM

Fully agree!

There’s the Traditioelle WT that’s at 42mm if I remember correctly, and wears substantially smaller than the Overseas.

I see. [nt]

Yes I tried both. My wrist is ~ 16.5cm and the problem is the lug shape and how the strap and bracelet connects to the lugs...

if you have a smaller wrist, there is a gap between the strap or bracelet and your wrist (called strap float). It is still wearable but not ideal. It is the same way for the 3rd gen chrono which is the same size. Unfortunately, the only 3rd gen Overseas t...
