Among all the new products released at the 2020 Shanghai Watch and Miracle Exhibition, one of the most obvious trends is the matching of rose gold or rose gold cases with blue dials. If done well, it can display dramatic high-contrast and luxurious material works. Since the opening of the trade show, several brands have shown changes in themes. Vacheron Constantin (replica Vacheron Constantin) is one of the most watched works in this emerging field. It brings this luxurious high-impact combination to the three-handed bracelet Overseas with a new rose gold case. Although this is not the first time that pink gold has been used in an overseas series (a pair of ultra-thin pink gold overseas perpetual calendar variants were released in April 2020), the new Vacheron Constantin overseas automatic winding rose gold model subtly introduces this color combination The core of the series.
The 41 mm case of the new Vacheron Constantin overseas automatic winding is made of 18k 5N pink gold. From the initial picture, it seems to be somewhere between the more common rose gold or red gold and classic gold. It looks more refined, more like a blush, and helps to highlight the brushed finish of the main cabinet. In addition to the new materials, this case retains all the iconic elements of the Overseas series, such as the unique gear-shaped bezel, one-piece lugs and a small unprotected screw-in crown. Vacheron Constantin includes a sapphire display case back, and proves that the case has a water resistance rating of 150 meters.
Like the Wholesale watch case, the dial of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding follows the classic Overseas formula, a new interpretation of colorful colors. The blue sunburst surface here looks dark sapphire blue in the image, and the change from light to dark at different angles is relatively drastic. This deeper tone seems to offset the slightly lighter pink gold tones used in the case and dial hardware, providing further contrast to these complementary colors. However, the date window at 3 o’clock does clearly disrupt the overall visual process, and the future version without a date may be a more concise choice.
Vacheron Constantin uses the self-made 5100 automatic movement to power this new overseas automatic movement. The finish of the 5100 is meticulous and clean. The wide beveled splint is engraved with Côtes de Genève under the gorgeously carved 22k gold rotor with a compass pattern. The 5100 carries the Geneva logo certification and provides a 60-hour power reserve at a beat rate of 28,800 bph.
Like many previous overseas models, one of the main selling points of the new Vacheron Constantin rose gold overseas automatic watch is the multiple strap options that come with it. In addition to the navy blue textured rubber strap and alligator leather strap, this watch also includes a new version of the classic Overseas bracelet, with its unique Maltese cross-inspired link made of 18k rose gold. All three options include the brand’s quick release system for easy replacement, plus multiple straps that come with it, which is a real benefit for designs with unorthodox or integrated lugs.
Although the change from rose gold to rose gold is far from revolutionary, the rose gold Vacheron Constantin overseas automatic winding looks like a beautiful extension of one of the brand’s iconic series.
