I had the pleasure to wear a Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph for the last couple days. It was my first time to hold a Vacheron Constantin in my hands and wear it around my wrist.
I am aware that they are the longest continually operating watchmanufacturer in the world, and that they make some of the best watches and movements we know of. Yet, I did not really know what to expect from this watch.
Clearly, the finishing of the case and the bracelet is top notch. Does not get any better. In addition, the watch had a rubber strap with deployment clasp. I wore it with the rubber strap for the past couple days and must admit, it was very comfortable to ear, despite the heft of this chronograph.
The case is also a nice combination of satination and polished parts. Executed in a very nice way.
The most amazing on this watch is the dial though. It is a black guilloche dial, with a kind of honeycomb pattern (not exactly, I just do not have any better word to describe it. So just check the pictures.)
The watch has a very understated elegance and appearance. It is not like a Daytona which everybody recognizes.
I fell in love with the dial, simply gorgeous.
This Chronograph is antimagnetic. The Chrono pushers are screwed, and the function is smooth.
It is a rare bird and I do not see Vacherons on people’s wrists. I really like this watch a lot, and maybe one day, I will buy one for myself.
