This is how i started with VC

At  a very young age in my teens, i started to notice watches that is on display and they were all calling out for me to adopt them. 

I started to appreciate VC when someone close to me bought me a VC Overseas 49150 Chrono. 

After that, i started to research into VC Overseas history and understand that although they dont have a long history but they are very attractive and comfortable even though they dont have an in-house movement.

Not before long, i found another VC Overseas 42042 that has been neglected and left in the box due to its small size and thin case.

In the nutshell, It is a great watch to wear when travelling overseas.




What a great start Dr. Alfy

You will find that the Overseas is how many a modern VC collector got started (myself included). Those are both great watches. You'll be looking at Patrimonys, Traditionelles, Historiques, Quai d,Iles, Historiques, Métier d'Arts, vintage... ah, there is much to learn and you have come a great place to share your journey and learn from some who have taken a path ahead already. A pleasure to meet you. 

And for grins, this is how *I* started with VC

Her is my first VC (an Overseas - obviously). Would be great for any othersto post their first VC (especially if it was an OS).

The American 1921 was first. The Overseas for me came in as a close second about 6 months later. 

A patriotic theme

VC's gateway drug....
07/15/2015 - 16:46

as others have confessed, the Overseas is a nefarious street drug that will soon lead to heavy dependence on regular injections of haute horlogerie.  And to reference Alex's recent post, these infusions are accompanied by an outflow of all available cash handed over to suspicious characters loitering behind glass counters surprise.

Pssssst....hey buddy, wouldn't you like a taste of 222....just the finest jumbo, mind you....

This is my first Vacheron Constantin - a Dual Time. Great to share a common passion! Best regards James

Well, I am also somehow addicted to the Oversea modells and I love the blue sea dial.

However, I started with the Royal Eagle, followed by my first OS model.

The Duo became a Trio when I got the blue sea beauty.


best regards


Congrats Sven! (nt)

Great VCs. I started with a 42042. Same as yours. Fantastic piece. Small and discret and classic.
