Released in 2005, this Limited Edition Vacheron Constantin was produced to commemorate the jeweller Wempe's 100 Year anniversary. As such, this watch is limited to only 100 examples, making them extremely rare.

The watch features a glossy black dial and Wempe logo below the date subdial. The bracelet and case is finished with brushing, giving a sporty yet luxurious feel to the watch.

This watch features a dual-time complication, which allows the user to see the time in two separate timezones. It also features a power reserve indicator, as well as a day-and-night subdial for the second timezone.

The Overseas is Vacheron Constantin's take on a stainless steel luxury sports watch. Designed by a young Jorg Hysek and released in 1977 (shortly after Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak in 1972 and Patek Philippe's Nautilus in 1976), it stood in stark contrast against the brand's mainstay, which was then (and arguably still is now) thin dress watches rendered in precious metal.

The watch was then discontinued, until it was resurrected in 1996 as the modern Overseas collection. Unlike Patek Philippe or Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin drew from its heritage and included the Maltese cross motif both on the bezel and bracelet. This created an arguably more complex and nuanced design which perfectly encapsulates the inherent contradictions between a 'Holy Trinity' watchmaker and the humble stainless steel sports watch.

This Vacheron Constantin is in excellent condition, with only light marks on the case and bracelet from occasional wear.

Comes with inner and outer box set, this is the original Wempe limited number series 0xx/100, leather folder with instructions and original guarantee paper.

VACHERON CONSTANTIN

As the oldest brand from the 'Holy Trinity', Vacheron Constantin has a deserved reputation as one of the finest watchmakers still in operation. The company's repertoire is extremely broad, covering everything from sports watches and dress watches all the way to its famed 'Les Cabinotiers' atelier, which specialises in combining the manufacture's most modern horological advances with centuries of artistic and decorative experience to produce watches that are, simply put, works of art.
