Vacheron Constantin unveils the Overseas Tourbillon, an all-titanium watch at Watches And Wonders 2024. This all-titanium iteration of the Overseas collection not only showcases the Maison's mastery of material engineering but also reinforces the collection's spirit of adventure and versatility. Compared to the 2023 Overseas models, this iteration stands out with its bold choice of titanium as the primary material, a decision that underscores the collection's commitment to both durability and lightness. The use of titanium, a hypoallergenic and robust metal, ensures that this timepiece can withstand the rigors of an active lifestyle while remaining remarkably comfortable on the wrist.

Crafted entirely from robust yet lightweight titanium, from the 42.5mm case to the interchangeable bracelet and straps, the Overseas Tourbillon exudes a sporty-chic allure that perfectly aligns with the collection's spirit of adventure. The emblematic blue dial, adorned with a translucent lacquer and sunburst satin-brushed flange, offers a mesmerizing play of light and texture, further accentuated by the meticulous finishing of the titanium elements.

At the core of this watch lies the ultra-thin self-winding Calibre 2160, showcasing Vacheron Constantin's expertise in intricate watchmaking. With a thickness of just 5.65mm, this remarkable movement features a majestic tourbillon regulator visible at 6 o'clock on the dial. This ingenious complication, crafted to counteract gravity's impact on the movement's accuracy, ensures exceptional precision – essential for a watch designed for global travelers.

The elegance of the Calibre 2160 is further elevated by its impeccable finishing, showcasing the brand's unwavering dedication to detail. From the circular-grained mainplate and hand-beveled bridges adorned with the iconic Côtes de Genève motif, to the finely grained wheels and hand-polished tourbillon bar, every component is a testament to the artisans' meticulous craftsmanship.
