Vacheron Constantin Overseas Tourbillon Now Available In Titanium

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Tourbillon Now Available In Titanium

Vacheron Constantin have created a new version of the Overseas tourbillon model, entirely made of titanium with the collection’s emblematic blue dial.

Vacheron Constantin is expanding its range of titanium watches with an Overseas tourbillon model. Entirely made of titanium, from case to bracelet and from crown to bezel, this model graced with the collection’s emblematic blue dial is powered by ultra-thin self-winding Calibre 2160. Equipped with a tourbillon regulator visible at 6 o’clock through a dial opening, the movement features an 22K gold peripheral oscillating weight winding the calibre and ensuring a comfortable over three-day power reserve. With its extremely meticulous finishing of both the titanium case and the movement, this Overseas tourbillon is perfectly aligned with the spirit of this travel-dedicated collection. It comes with an integrated titanium bracelet (equipped with a titanium Grade 5 triple-blade folding clasp) that can be swapped out tool-free for two additional blue calfskin and rubber straps (delivered with a self interchangeable titanium Grade 5 folding clasp).

This resolutely adventurous watch is equally technical with its tourbillon majestically enthroned at 6 o’clock. Its mechanical ballet punctuated by the steady rotation of the regulator highlights the importance of horological complications in the world of Vacheron Constantin. Designed to compensate for the effects of the earth’s gravity on the movement’s isochronism, the tourbillon is a guarantee of precision and takes on its full meaning in a watch dedicated to travel. With that in mind, it also had to be perfectly ergonomically curved. At just over 10 mm thick, this Overseas tourbillon model fits snugly and lightly on the wrist, without sacrificing the robustness of titanium.

With its 22K gold peripheral oscillating weight arming the barrel for a comfortable 80-hour power reserve, the movement testifies to Vacheron Constantin’s technical mastery in the construction of ultra-thin complication movements. This architecture without a central rotor also offers the advantage of providing a clear view of the entire movement and its meticulous finishing.

With its circular-grained mainplate and hand-bevelled bridges adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif, its carefully hand-polished tourbillon bar, its finely grained wheels, not forgetting its chamfered and polished screws, Calibre 2160 offers a concrete vision of technical and precious High Watchmaking. Operating at a frequency of 2.5 Hz (18,000 vibrations per hour).

This model comes with an integrated titanium bracelet featuring a triple-blade folding clasp equipped with a comfort-adjustment system. The links securing the folding clasp can be stretched to provide up to 4 mm more room around the wrist. In order to adapt the style of the watch to its surroundings, the integrated titanium bracelet can be swapped out tool-free for two additional calfskin leather or blue rubber straps. These are equipped with a self-interchangeable titanium Grade 5 folding clasp, also interchangeable without any need for tools.
