New: Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph in pink gold
Retail price for the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph in pink gold is SGD 73,000 inclusive of GST. Boutique exclusive.
This new version of the Overseas Chronograph which we first reviewed in detail in 2019. The only difference is the case, which is now in 18k 5N pink gold, and the watch comes with a 18k 5N gold bracelet as well as a blue calfskin leather strap and a blue rubber strap. The additional straps come with their own 18k 5N gold buckle.
The dial is the same as the one in our review, which then was only available in the steel case. The two steel models, on in blue as mentioned, and the other black came with the steel bracelet and both a calf strap and a rubber strap. Until this version, there was only one gold model, and it only came with either the bracelet or the dual interchangeable straps (at SGD 52k) which had a silver dial.
All else remain the same. The movement is the excellent Caliber 5200, and remains unchanged. As with the ingenious quick change mechanism to swiftly swap out the bracelet for either straps.
2022 NEW MODEL
- An all-750/1000 5N pink gold version matching the collection’s iconic blue-lacquered dial, with a sunburst satin finish.
