Watches and Wonders 2021: Vacheron Constantin OVERSEAS PERPETUAL CALENDAR ULTRA-THIN SKELETON.

Apr 07, 2021,02:18 AM
 

This year, Vacheron revisited the Overseas with the Perpetual Calendar Ultra Thin Skeleton.


A 41, 5 mm case, which is 8, 10 mm high, so ultra thin is not really appropriate, but let's say that it is beautifully thin. 

The movement is the Cal 1120 QPSQ ( for Quantième Perpetuel Squelette ), which beats at the pace of 19, 800 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of 40 hours. 


Three possibilities with this watch: It is delivered with a white gold bracelet, but a navy blue alligator and a rubber strap in the same color are provided. 








This is my favorite Overseas. I find it magnificent, and especially like the blend of almost funky style and the delicate work on the skeleton. 

Now, this beauty has a price: 134 000 Euros... 

Best,

Nicolas

I would really like to see a version of the Overseas again whose second hand hacks. While I love the looks of the third generation over the second as well as the quick change straps/bracelets, I sold mine as the second hand does not hack. To me, this is a... 

An interesting factoid on the month register

The VC perpetual displays all the 48 months on the subdial, which also is conveniently divided to show the leap year and the others. Christian Selmoni, the Creative Director of VC explained that the use of this display method instead of the 12 month displ... 

VC made it antimagnetic...how?

Busy dial however , not my thing.

Thanks for the write-up - I've taken a closer look at VC following the revamp of their entire Overseas line - as something very similar to AP's Royal Oak line. And it seems more available in boutiques - perhaps a follow-on effect of the supply / demand si... 

Well said...

It's interesting how there is such a strong relationship between IG popularity and perceived value for watches as well as many other luxury items. As for VC and the other Richemont brands, I think there is an opportunity to improve the impact of their soc... 

This is my favourite VC to date ... a grail watch

The blue of this VC is incredible, and that extra thin skeletonized dial! Speechless ...

Now this one is a real beast!

I‘m a huge fan of the non-skeleton WG ultrathin PC, and this one just adds another stunning quality on top! Nothing to improve here, I think.

Yes, I have to agree.
