Vacherin Constantin launches two new Overseas collection watches
A chronograph and a dual time, both dubbed "Everest", will be limited to 150 pieces each
Famed watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has added two new models to its sporty Overseas collection - one chronograph and one dual time - both dubbed “Everest”.
These two numbered 150-piece limited editions are, as the brand puts it, a "symbol of discovery and openness to the world"; one which "explores new heights of elegance and robustness with two models radiating a resolutely sporting temperament".
Inspired by the world’s tallest mountain peak, the two watches are worn and endorsed by American explorer and photographer Cory Richards, who has been working with the watchmaker.
In 2019, this seasoned mountaineer undertook his third ascent of the ‘roof of the world’ via the North-East Ridge of Everest – considered the most difficult and perilous route – with an Overseas dual time prototype specially developed by Vacheron Constantin on his wrist.
The new models, all of which are recognisable by the famous six-sided bezel evoking the Maltese cross, are distinguished by a powerful and distinctive style expressed through a skilful combination of materials, alternating between titanium and steel. The case, the bezel, the pushers and pusher guards are made of titanium, a light, robust and corrosion-resistant metal.
The cases are constructed from stainless steel and titanium and both come equipped with two straps (rubber and cordura) for the self-interchangeable strap system.
The Dual Time model is priced at £26,600 while the Chronograph is priced at £31,400.
