Vacheron Constantin will be introducing for the Japanese market only a new Overseas Chronograph in partnership with the car magazine Engine thus the name of the watch: Overseas Engine!
This new model is opening a new path for Vacheron Constantin as it uses two materials never used by the brand before: titanium and carbon fiber. Even though this watch is reserved only for the Japanese market it is an indication of a future direction the design of the Overseas will be taking.
To underline even more the car connection note the chronograph hands on the watch which mimick the indicators on a car's dashboard. The hands do not start at the habitual 12 position but rather at 7.
Case is 42 mm in steel with titanium bezzel and screws on push pieces. Only 50 pieces will be made.
Don't ask me what I think of the "engine start" on the chrono pusher.....
