Vacheron Constantin - Overseas Chronograph Calibre 5200

| No comment
We continue our presentation of the various models part of the Overseas collection introduced by Vacheron Constantin earlier this year in Geneva during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2016.

After the three-hand model, the perpetual calendar and the world timer, this time we focus on the Overseas Chronograph and its manufacture self-winding movement Calibre 5200.

The result of a five-year development process, this 263-component calibre is fitted with a column wheel coordinating the chronograph start, stop and reset functions, as well as a vertical coupling clutch preventing any jerking of the hand when the chronograph starts.

Visible through the transparent case back, the 22K gold oscillating weight is decorated with a wind rose. Another beautiful detail that connoisseurs will appreciate, the column wheel is enhanced by a screw shaped like the Manufacture’s signature Maltese cross emblem.

The advanced movement beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and is equipped with a twin barrel enhancing its torque and its reliability while ensuring over 50 hours of power reserve. A soft iron ring protects it from magnetic fields.

The dial is proposed in silver or blue and adorned with sunburst, snailed and velvety finishes. The gold facetted hands and hour-markers hands are coated with a luminescent material for optimal readability even in poor light conditions.

The 42.5 mm case is available in stainless steel or pink gold and features screwed-down pushpieces, crown and caseback to guarantee a water-resistance to 150 metres / 500 feet.

The stainless steel models are delivered with three interchangeable bracelet/straps: a steel bracelet with an easy-fit system, along with rubber and leather straps.

The pink gold model comes with two straps: one in leather and the other in rubber, both fitted with an interchangeable pink gold folding clasp.

Like all the models of the new collection, the Overseas Chronograph bears the Hallmark of Geneva to certify the highest quality standards. Retail prices are Euro 31,100 / US$ 28,900 for the stainless steel models (ref. 5500V/110A-B075 with silver dial and ref. 5500V/110A-B148 with blue dial) and Euro 52,700 / US$ 49,000 for the pink gold version (ref. 5500V/000R-B074).
