The crown jewel of complications
The Vacheron Constantin Overseas collection even has two versions of this beautiful watchmaking complication – in an ultra-thin case. It combines the Maison’s unique aesthetic standards with extraordinary craftsmanship and embellishments: from the hexagonal bezel that is reminiscent of the signature feature of Vacheron Constantin, the Maltese cross, to the translucent, painted dial with faceted and luminescent hands and hour markers made of gold.

Modern lifestyle and a true sense of cosmopolitanism
It was with this in mind that Vacheron Constantin developed the Overseas Dual Time as part of its collection dedicated especially to the spirit of the traveller. Everything about this watch was developed in order to take account of the variable factors that define the life of world travellers and interpreted in a practical, useful and resolute manner. This watch is the embodiment of a modern, cosmopolitan lifestyle, featuring a striking design that combines a high level of watchmaking craftsmanship with practical solutions. From the readability of the dial to the ability to set the functions seamlessly through to wearer comfort: the Overseas Dual Time has proven itself to be the ideal companion around the world. The hour hand shows the time in the wearer’s current country, while the triangular hand with the arrowhead displays the time in the reference time zone, the home time.
Moon-phase watchesthe romantic complication
Timeless and elegant
In addition to the useful components of the moon phase, fascination with this complication plays an enormous role. Celestial bodies have fascinated and influenced people since the dawn of time. For this reason, the moon-phase display is one of the most popular and probably the most romantic complication in watchmaking.
The Fiftysix Complete Calendar with automatic movement shows the date, day and month, as well as the precise moon phases and is accurate to an astonishing 122 years. The latest model has a petrol blue dial and represents a modern interpretation of the legendary reference 6073 dating back to 1956, which was inspired by the Maltese cross. Yet this casual watch has a retro-contemporary style that makes it suitable for everyday use.
