Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin skeleton


Perfectly embodying the technical and aesthetic expertise of the Maison, the Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin skeleton is now presented in a new white gold interpretation exclusively available from Vacheron Constantin boutiques.

The sapphire crystal of this version reveals a truly magnificent sight: all the components of Calibre 1120 QPSQ/1 have been hollowed out, finished and decorated in such a way as to accentuate the functional beauty of the mechanism. The NAC-coated oscillating weight with its 22K gold segment has also been openworked to highlight its stylised design inspired by the shape of the Maltese cross. The finishing work is meticulous: from the straight-graining of the surfaces (to lend a satin-brushed look to the chamfered straight lines) and the curves (to create light effects) to circular brushing, sunburst finishing, circular-graining and polishing (to vary the depth effects), every aspect bears the imprint of the artisans’ golden touch.

Skeleton-working calibres as complex as this perpetual calendar with its 276 components, while ensuring both legibility and reliability, is an integral part of the Maison’s expertise. The gaze is naturally drawn to the intricate inner workings of the movement, while also reading the time on the applied 18K white gold hour-markers as well as the day of the week, date and month indications on the dial counters. Whereas watches indicating the day of the week, date and month require constant adjustments in step with months of 28, 29 and 30 days, the Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin skeleton watch will not require the slightest intervention until the year 2100 – an ultimate user-friendly feature.
