OVERSEAS RELIABILITY

I'm looking forward to buy a new OS dual time but I've heared many comments about operational problems with time.
I entrust the VC but I'm thinking that may the problems coming by the reason that the mentioned calibre is not an in house one.
Pls help me as I need a watch for every day but with high precicion and full reliability.

Hi Salvador, I have a Dual Time and I am very happy with it.  I have not had any problems with it after a year of daily use.  Timewise, it runs a few seconds fast each day, but otherwise keeps time very well.  The JLC movement is very reliable and it is a joy to listen to. The Dual Time is a beautiful sports watch and I am delighted with its design and performance.  What problems have you heard about this watch?  I would be interested about your concerns. Best regards JAMES
I'm surprised by your comments ................

and I'd be interested as well as I'm very seriously considering the Chrono.  I love the brand and have a Malte Chrono that is just wonderful that I've owned a year now. Please give me a heads-up on what your concerns are. best regards, Tom

Hi, I have an old style Overseas Chronometer that I bought used and have been using as a daily watch without any issues.  It just had a full service completed and is running very well right now.  Before hand it was slowing down a little (which is why I brought it in for service), but never had any reliability issues over the past year. BR, Dan

Am surprised to read your post as I am close to my AD and have not learned of problems with the Overseas line. Perhaps you can give us some details for us to answer for you. As far as my watch in the photos below it has been just superb. I do timing checks and find it quite accurate and sporty for the activities I wear it. Hope you will study it further before changing your mind. Good luck! Matt

I have a Malte DTR

I have had a two time returning problem. The shifting of the "second" timezone", the small one. 24 hours. It's been serviced twice on the guarantee, last time three years ago. I belive it was a defect from the beginning, since I haven't heard about others with the same problem. It keeps time very good and have done it from the start, + 2s a day. I love this watch and I would recommend it to anyone. The mainpoint is that are no problems with Vacheron's movements. Never! I, who generally buy vintage watches, mainly from the 1930's, is still amazed that they always starts and keep time. Always. This one from 1936, is just +1s a day! Cheers Doc
Great looking watch Doc...

I realize you are interested in the Dual Time, but if it helps I had no problems with the chronometre either...
Perhaps you've been misinformed

I've found the Overseas Chrono to be extremely reliable, as are the Royal Oak Chronographs sharing the same F Piguet movement, of which I've owned many.  The Overseas Chrono. is a wonderful watch and as an avid chrono collector and user who has owned dozens from all the major houses, I can say unhesitantingly that this is one of the finest, most reliable chronos a man could enjoy for a lifetime and pass on to his son.  If I were advising someone what would be the most practical, versatile watch a man could own as his only watch, this would surely be one of the my top two recommendations, both of which have the same movement.
