20 Overseas models designed by The Hour Club members, some amazing...

designs!

As you all know by now on Jan 20 and 21st 2 groups of The Hour Club members gathered in Geneva for 2 days of VC galore. 

One of the ateliers they got to experience was the Design department where thay actually got to to sit down with a member of the design team and design their own personnal Overseas chronograph.

The design team was quite amazed by the cerativity and the attention to details of the participants and they were also surprised to see that many chose bold designs.

Hereunder are the results, I have removed the names to protect the innocent...other than on my own creation. Vincent Kauffmann the Director of Design told me that in 250 years of archives my design would go down as being one of the ugliest watches ever cool.

Though with all those colorful dials I though that the designers of the TAG Heuer Formula One might have hacked into  the the VC design studio computers! ;-) There seems to be some demand for a ceramic bezel. Bill
Seems like a lot of fun. Wish I was there too. Very colorful

love these two very nice grey brushed dial, the dark indexes, dark blue details, it looks fantastic ! And this one, "classic" panda style, very efficient (would look even better on bracelet imho)

Thank you for the great close-up's, Alex. They really give one the opportunity to see all the details of these conceptual creations. I see quite a few promising proposals. I imagine the designers were pleased by the daring shown here; nothing is more disappointing, or more difficult to work with, I imagine, than a "safe" concept, and with these, The Hour Club members have certainly given the designers something in which to sink their teeth!
Alex ain't in Mr Kauffmann's good books!...

and I keep returning to Radek's CF dial with orange accents cool
some very bold designs that I would love to see produced. My favorites

I have some design ideas my self.

I have some design ideas my self. Maybe not as radical as some of the above. Of the above this one is my favorite. Would also look cool on a black alligator strap.    
I just added one more

Saving the best for last? It seems an especially elegant, yet performance-oriented colour for the Overseas. (With twenty great concepts, my cup runneth over . . . )

Oh, now I see Alex. The brown dial and strap will match nicely my wife's brown eyes and hair smiley
Great time

Alex, It was a great experience. My first bespoke Vacheron Constantin design will hopefully not remain the last... :-) Katlinka was very helpful and enthusiastic, and I love the result. Thank you Katlinka. :-) Best Dje
