Vacheron Constantin: Travel To Overseas (Part 1)

Playing a watch is a trip, a trip that people do not want to go back once they set off. In the course of tasting this trip, we have played from basic movements to complex performances, from complex performances to top craftsmanship; each watch is a landscape describing time, and each landscape is fascinating. Surprise. This time, let’s fly to Overseas with a relaxed mood and experience surprises.

First stop: the original intention of travel

   Welcome to the world of Overseas! If you are here for the first time, congratulations! You will experience the magnificence of the mountains and rivers and the ingenious details here. Maybe, you are wondering: Are the majestic and delicate words compatible? At first glance it does seem a bit contradictory. However, the fact is that you can recognize the extraordinary domineering of Overseas from a few meters away, and you can also admire its mirrored luster contrasted by the hairline pattern up close; and these two characteristics come from the same place-watch ring.

Overseas automatic stainless steel case, 41 mm diameter, hours, minutes, seconds, date, 5100 self-winding movement, power reserve 60 hours, Geneva mark, sapphire crystal glass and case back, waterproof 150 meters, stainless steel chain Strap, quick release mechanism for strap, crocodile leather and rubber strap.

   Overseas’s bezels have a story. Some people say that it looks like the gear that makes the mechanical watch work, which sounds reasonable. Ingeniously, each ‘tooth flap’ on the bezel is actually part of the Maltese cross, and because the Maltese cross not only represents the four virtues of wiseness, restraint, justice, strength, etc., but also modesty, courtesy, compassion, peace, common The symbols of integrity, loyalty, purity, and perseverance are the eight symbols of Vacheron Constantin’s brand, which makes it not only reasonable, but perfect.

   Of course, there are many delicate places, such as the Maltese crosses scattered between the metal strap links, and the layers polished by bright and matte methods. But what is most curious is the mechanism used to quickly remove the strap at the upper and lower ends of the case back. Yes, you can change a stainless steel chain strap to a crocodile leather strap or a more casual and sporty rubber strap at the speed of an IG post with just a click. Logging into the cabin from the VIP lounge is as easy and comfortable as sliding a lightweight suitcase.

   Isn’t this the best watch for travel?

Second stop: Exploring mentality

   Do you know how many time zones are in the world? Don’t rush to google, mental calculations. The earth rotates 360 degrees, rotates 15 degrees per hour, and draws a meridian every 15 degrees. That’s right, there are exactly 24 time zones. However, the difference between some countries and other time zones is not in hours, but special numbers like 30 minutes and 45 minutes, such as Nepal (UTC + 5: 45) and Afghanistan (UTC + 4: 30). So the world that counts these special time zones into 37 time zones, which is what the Overseas World Time Watch tells us.

Overseas world time zone watch stainless steel case, diameter 43.5 mm, hours, minutes, seconds, world time zone, 2460WT / 1 self-winding movement, power reserve 40 hours, Geneva mark, sapphire crystal glass and case back, waterproof 150 Meter, rubber strap with quick release mechanism, crocodile leather strap and stainless steel chain strap.

   What is Overseas telling us? explore. How could we know the earth by dividing the world into 37 time zones accurately? impossible. After all, this is a place that has gone through billions of years. If we have endless fun in the limited course of playing watches, then we certainly have more unknown things to explore for the planet we live in. Exploration is a human instinct since ancient times. Whether it is discovering a new continent or acquiring a law from an apple, some people spend hours a day searching for knowledge between words and lines, and some people spend decades building an opportunity to change the world . Vacheron Constantin began to create time counting tools in 1755, and also led people to explore the mystery of timing tools. From Geneva to the world, it has been uninterrupted for more than 260 years.

   We can never master the world, we always need to learn in the journey of life. However, when we mastered the spirit of exploration and the height of travel, we sprang up.
