There are many benefits to travelling: not only does it make you more relaxed, but it also encourages you to be more adventurous, which in turn can boost your creativity and broaden your perspectives. But even though travelling the world may seem like a glamorous affair, the truth is it can also really mess up your sense of time. That’s why it’s crucial to be well prepared with all the essentials to help you hop through different time zones gracefully.
To combat time-zone confusion for travellers, it’s only natural that Vacheron Constantin would design a watch especially for this purpose. While there are a number of timepieces in the market that can showcase multiple time zones at the same time, Vacheron Constantin has managed to outshine them all with its newly launched Overseas World Time watch.
With no less than 37 time zones on display (including those offset by a half or quarter hour in relation to UTC time), the Overseas World Time is one of the new additions to the Maison’s iconic Overseas collection, and it makes an ideal travel companion. The new model is top of the line and comes in a 43.5mm-diameter case with an in-house Caliber 2460 WT, while the dial — in blue, silver-toned or brown versions — features a beautiful Lambert projection map surrounded by a a translucent, lacquered disc bearing the names of different cities, allowing you to keep track of the time around the world with a single glance.
Other than the World Time, Vacheron Constantin has also released two other Overseas models for travellers with different preferences. For gentlemen who demand sophistication, the 41.5mm Overseas Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar will be the choice for you with its impressively slim white gold case and elegant grey dials with blue accents. Meanwhile, ladies with equally exquisite taste will find themselves dazzled by Overseas Small Model for its 84 round-cut diamonds that are daintily set on the six-sided bezel as well as the translucent rosy beige-lacquered, sunburst satin-finished dial.
All three newly released Overseas models are Hallmark of Geneva-certified, and come with three interchangeable straps fit for any occasion you might encounter during your travels. Opt for the hand-stitched Mississippiensis alligator leather design for business meetings and the rubber strap for casual or outdoor activities. As for cocktail hours, the bracelet with polished and satin-brushed Maltese cross-inspired links will grant you just the right amount of glamour.
