Overseas ultra-thin – Calibre 1120

The Overseas Ultra-thin watch exudes an aura of apparent sobriety. Available exclusively in Vacheron Constantin boutiques, this distinguished model meets the demanding Hallmark of Geneva requirements. Its slim 18K white gold 40 mm-diameter case houses Calibre 1120, an ultra-thin self-winding movement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, comprising 144 components while measuring no more than 2.45 mm thick. Endowed with an approximately 40-hour power reserve, the Overseas ultra-thin drives hours and minutes hands sweeping over an elegant grey dial punctuated by gold luminescent facetted hands and hour-markers. The back of the watch, protected by a sapphire crystal, reveals the steady dance of the 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose and featuring alternating polished, sandblasted and finely grained finishes. Fitted with an interchangeable white gold case with easy-fit system, this new model is complemented by two straps – one in leather and the other in rubber – secured by a white gold buckle.

These pictures do not do this piece justice. Maybe it looks much better

Moving forward, why not have a Non-boutique version SS version of this?

The most remarkable model for me in brand-new Overseas line!

This not too large Maltese cross which is animated by conventional movement

would be strong rival of AP's Royal Oak 15202.

And I was never a big fan of the overseas I must admit... but that!!! )

If only it comes in stainless steel...

I love all of you, my friends with the sharpest of eyes

and knowledge of VC.

Your absolutely right, this is really the closest descendent of the orginal, jumbo, 222 in terms of looks.  It even uses the same base movement!  Loving the 1120 and everthing about the watch...except the price of white gold.
