New: Vacheron Constantin Overseas Quartz ladies
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Quartz Ref. 1225V/200R-H015 retails for SGD 74,000 inclusive of GST.
Interesting novelty from Vacheron Constantin in the ladies sector. This time a pink gold model with integrated bracelet in the 33mm case with a quartz movement. This new model joins the existing model in stainless steel, and one in pink gold without integrated bracelet.
The VC literature tells us that the novelty is a new design combining a bezel set with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds and a denim blue dial. The watch is delivered with two additional straps in calfskin and denim blue as well as the solid gold bracelet. The VC strap interchange system is used to good effect to give the watch three different looks by swapping straps.
The solid gold status of the novelty carries a price tag of SGD 74k vs the similar 33mm model in SS which is priced at SGD 16k, while the pink gold model without bracelet is SGD 33k. This gives the ladies who like the 33mm case size, and the convenience of a quartz movement three options at three different pricing levels.
This 18K 5N pink gold watch combines femininity, delicacy, and sporty allure. The 6-sided bezel, which recalls the Maltese cross, is adorned with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds. Its small, 33-millimeter case houses a quartz movement displaying the hours, minutes, seconds, and date aperture at 3 o’clock.
Thanks to its buckle and three straps – 18K 5N pink gold, leather, and rubber – equipped with a self-interchangeable system, the watch can be personalized according to the owner’s wishes.
