I have just acquired a new Overseas Chronograph, which I have wanted for some time. Before I bought it, I had tried it on in real life and compared it with an Audemars Piguet chronograph. For me, the Overseas wins hands down, due to its more appealing modern design, glorious dial pattern, hand treatment, comfortable bracelet and big date display. After a few days of wearing, I cannot help but give it a 10 out of 10. And I am extremely fussy when it comes to watches.
Now, am I right in understanding that the Overseas's case is finished by hand, and that the its dial is a true engined turned, i.e. cut rather than stamped (The Overseas on-line catalogue says it is 'engine-turned')?
Here are some gratuitous pictures; I hope you do not mind:
By the way, I have heard of people getting VC advertisment items such as, caps. How can I get one? I bought the watch at an airport in Asia and I do not think they will send things over to me here in the UK.
