Dear Loungers,


prior to start I beg for your sympathy, do please take this thread with the due irony.


It’s been a while I was feeling the need to have more Overseas on my arm, I often wear 2 watches at the time (is not such a bad idea as most of the times nobody cares and consequently notices while I double the joy without causing any harm to nobody) but it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to pursue this time.


I simply wanted more of something I already had, a gadget to complement the Overseas I already had on my wrist.


It took some time – a month, more or less – to conceive and realize that something more. This is the result:





















The ring is made of 12 links of white gold and I must admit I love it; btw, I’ve never worn a ring my whole life, Overseasmania made it possible and since such a gadget is not available at VC boutiques, I took the liberty to design my own.


Please consider Alex encouraged me to post this thread and I previously told him I would have destroyed the ring if he had asked me. Failing that, I hope I gave a good idea to VC, to develop a new toy for like-minded Vacheronistas.

I love it.  I wish I could order one.  The only ring I wear is my wedding ring.  What a great idea. Thank you for sharing.  I would imagine that fine sizing would be a challenge, but it appears your finger fits well into it.  Lovely.  - Jamie

Thank you Jamie, the ring fits comfortably, the Master goldsmith made an extra link already, just in case I get weight in the future angry


I assume there is a 222 link bracelet coming as well?

If anyone should have one, it is clearly you.

I love to see outlaw creations heart, and yours executed with such extreme panache yes.

I love it Roberto!

Beautiful photos and a wonderful idea!

I'd love a ring like that - unfortunately, I can't wear rings; when I do my finger always swells and I need to get the ring cut off. 


You take the word nut to a whole different level!!! Love this, looks soooooo cool

I think this IS the perfect companion for OS bracelet smiley

Another great addition for OS bracelet could be money clip in the same design smiley Few months ago there was a picture of VC money clip in 222's design published here at THL - and I immediately thought about same clip for current Overseas laugh

Thank you :-)

Thank you again Jamie, I believe nothing compares to the design of the Overseas bracelet, 222 included, therefore I think I’m just fine, I’m through with rings but thanks a lot for the – even if I don’t deserve – association of my name to that beloved reference.


Thank you Dean, I feel I’m a pirate sailing overseas! laugh


Thank you Dan, the thing which makes me happier is everybody understood the nature of this little creation of mine that is a tribute to a magnificent design and watch.


Thank you Dave, especially for your appreciation of the photos, it’s well-known I’m really bad taking pictures, your comment lifted me up! 


Thank you Alex and yes,  I’m crazy about the Overseas! 


Thank you Larry, another good idea, let’s see what the future will bring, SIHH 2016 is getting closer every day, by then, a new generation of Overseas will weigh the anchor, let’s hope there will be some room left for the accessories.

Thank you, Roberto, for the thank you. ;-)

I'm sure I'm an even worse photographer.

Frankly I think what Overseas line is the line which could win from additional VC accessories.

What we could need for, let's say, Patrimony line? A pair of cuff links (and we have them in VC accessories line), VC pen and wallet or notebook. Another story for Overseas line - I think what it's Spirit is on trustworthy creations which are always with you on-the-go. So I easily see standalone bracelet in OS style for other hand, pocket knife or multi tool, key holder with carabine hook, travel bag or maybe even sunglasses - all in Overseas line. 

As you may noticed many of us became VC loyal fans just after receiving VC Overseas so I think what it's here when the VC loyalty starts for most of watch lovers. So why not to try to make this entry (Overseas line) to be wider for more people to come? smiley

Sure I could be completely wrong with it cool

Now then, here's something that shapes-up rather nicely...

Roberto, Is it the fine Italian weather that inspired you to create this interesting piece? yes...

Beautifully presented and photographed to highlight your thoughts and aspirations. Well done!

Best wishes and thanks


You're way too generous

the source of inspiration was there, I just had to render it the right proportions.

That said, it's true, Italy may be a constant source of inspiration, beauty is everywhere.

Thank you Tony smiley
