Hour Lounge exclusive: The Overseas perpetual calendar chronograph

And here it is Loungers: the Overseas perpetual calendar chronograph in steel and titanium.

One of the coolest Overseas I have comme accross, fiercly masculine and visually arresting with the different contrasts of the steel case, titanium bezzel, grey dial and mustard hands

The case is 42mm in diameter and houses the automatic caliber 1136QP

The only downsize is that the watch is limited to 80 pieces available only in VC boutiques.

Is delivered with a grey croc strap and a black rubber strap.

notice the numeral 4 indicating the leap year is the same color as the hands!

Have a look four times before posting a reply. Looks interesting to combine this 2 great complications. QP seems to be more legible than Chrono data on this version compare to the gold or platinium VC in the 90's. To be seen in a Boutique to fully appreciate it. Alex, could you give us more details on this calibre and for this specific overseas height of the case and Water proof value. Thanks for sharing in exclusivity this new model. Cheers, Liger
the case is 12.8mm thick and water resistant to 150m. As for the
05/25/2011 - 20:28
caliber it is based on the Piguet 1185 chronograph with a perpetual calendar module first used in the 49005
The FP 1185 is one of the all time great chrono movements

and having a fondness for iconic movements, it was the reason I recently acquired this BP QP/Chrono from 2002. Among the wonderful features of the 1185 is that you can leave the chrono mechanism running continuously without harming the movement, which is not true for many other chronograph movements. Not sure that you would even want to do that on the Overseas since it appears to have constant seconds at 6 O'Clock, but nice to have the option. I can't wait to see the new model at the NY Boutique!

05/25/2011 - 23:13
and this is a great addition... I like! I am also hopeful they are all sold! G

Hi Alex. As a 47212 owner I love QP Chronos. This one is a beauty. Do you know the list or price? There is a 49095 in platinum available at a reasonable price and since the movements are similar but different from my 47212 I woyld like to compare the two watches. Thanks. Joe
its priced at euro 41k excluding sales taxes.

Just awesome...
05/26/2011 - 03:24
I love it, it totally lives up to my expectations. The yellowish hands are a great addition and the lack of the typical OS inscriptions on the dial is a big plus. I wold love to see the engraved moonface on his model but this is obviously reserved for special pieces. How is the legibility of different complications, Alex? Thanks for posting this, you made my day! 
you need some getting used to as the chrono and calendar
05/26/2011 - 20:23

indications are on the same subdials but rapidly legibility is no longer an issue

Really handsome , VC goes extreme on functions for a sports watch ...
05/26/2011 - 03:36
The accent colour is a good choice and not overwhelming . Really handsome !
05/26/2011 - 05:00
Only 80 piece?! My lord what a gorgeous piece:) Looks like an instant classic to me! thanks for sharing Jason
I have no idea why!!!!! :-)
05/26/2011 - 20:24


Very handsome piece!
05/26/2011 - 07:27

This is a very welcome addition, and hopefully a sign of better things to come. I think VC did a very good job of maintaining the "sporty" image of the OS. Thanks for sharing. Best regards, Kazumi

One of the finest sporty models

Sexy, sporty and stylish, that's how looks this refined and unfortunately limited jewel.

Getting closer now!

Like it very much but to which price? Cheers Doc
Lovely Overseas
05/26/2011 - 15:10

I like the chrono QP on this piece, maybe the bracelet would fit better ont thi piece. At first I ignore a bit the overseas but I am more and more into it Great variation.

the metal bracelet can be added to this versions
05/26/2011 - 20:25


Absolutely stunning!
05/26/2011 - 16:26
I'm already a big fan of the Overseas chronograph in steel and titanium and this one is just superb.
hey Frank good to see you here :-)
05/26/2011 - 20:26


Great piece, very symmetrical and handsome...
05/26/2011 - 18:52
It would be nice if it were a regular production piece though. Best, Mike

Hi Alex,

Really a beautiful watch. I think VC was very cautious in lauching a perpetual calendar & chronograph in a sporty model.

I personnally appreciate the Overseas in rose gold with chocolate brown dial. It is more casual chic, no doubt. I also believe VC will have also good new surprises in the future for the Overseas collection with complications.

Alex takes the cover off a mouth-watering beauty....

The Overseas Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, in any of it's guises, is undoubtedly a winner.


Great addition to the Overseas lineup!
05/27/2011 - 00:38

too bad it will be limited.


I agree with you on both points, Bill
05/27/2011 - 02:02

It is a good thing to have a perpetual chronograph in teh Overseas lineup.  But I think it would be even better if it were available going forward as a limited production piece.  It would expand the Overseas product line with a higher-end complication model. 

In any case, it is a beautiful watch.  The only thing I am missing is an applied Maltese Cross somewhere on the dial. 



The Maltese cross on top of the crown will have to do, Robert ;-))) nt

Well, okay
05/27/2011 - 18:05

I have to nitpick, Radek, in order to keep mytself from adding another watch to The List.  wink

I am happy with our Overseas, but did you order this one yet? 



The mustard hands and casework are spectacular.
05/27/2011 - 02:25

Fantastic addition to the Overseas line.



This is truly one beautiful watch!
05/28/2011 - 14:55
I had the chance to see it in the metal during a VC dinner in Shanghai. (Alex was wearing it, of course). I was sworn to secrecy, otherwise he would spread rumurs about me to Daisy, who sat next to him at dinner
Using my new IPad2 and still getting used to posting from it
05/28/2011 - 15:03
Sorry about the split post. I would love to trade in my 2 OSs for this one, but VC just isn't willing to do so. This is the nicest OS I've ever seen. Great, complicated piece, but designed for everyday use. I think a PC has to be used as a daily watch, otherwise what's the point:-). You also need the chrono with you at all times for those moments in life when you really want to use one. BR, Dan
Quite handsome!
05/28/2011 - 20:17
The overseas just got serious now :)
