Vacheron Constantin has always been at the forefront for watchmaking and these two new watches are no exception. In 2019, Vacheron Constantin released a prototype Overseas which was worn by mountaineer and photographer Cory Richards. While the prototype is made out of full titanium, these two new watches are made out of stainless steel but finished with contrasting titanium elements on both watches.
The Overseas Chronograph Everest has a case size of 42.5mm and the case is made out of stainless steel with a titanium Maltese Cross bezel. It has sapphire crystal on both the front and back of the watch which houses the Vacheron Constantin cal. 5200/2 automatic movement. It has a power reserve of 52 hours and comes with a grey cordura fabric with orange stitching and black nubuck leather lining, it also includes a second strap made out of grey rubber. To match the ruggedness of the watch it comes with a water resistance of 150 metres. It is limited to 150 pieces worldwide with a price of $37,000.
The Overseas Dual Time Everest on the other hand, has a case size of 41mm and just like the chronograph version is made out of stainless steel with a titanium Maltese Cross bezel. The Dual Time Everest comes with the Vacheron Constantin cal. 5110 DT/2 automatic movement which has a power reserve of 60 hours. It comes with the same straps as the chronograph version and also has the same water resistance. It is limited to 150 pieces worldwide as well with a price tag of $31,300. One final thing to mention is that on both watches the movement features a 22k gold rotor that bears a view of Mount Everest as photographed by Cory Richards.
While the prices of both these watches are definitely not that high comparing other watch pieces by Vacheron Constantin, making it only limited to 150 pieces worldwide and only available through their boutiques will make it nearly impossible for most people to attain this watch. On the other hand, it is always nice to see what Vacheron Constantin has released and as always a lot of fans will continue to look forward what other pieces will be released in the future.
