Vacheron Constantin is a respected Swiss watch brand that’s been in business for over two centuries. All through this while, it has produced quality timepieces with advanced movements and designs. Additionally, it has introduced several collections into the market, one of them being the Vacheron Constantin Overseas. 

Presented in 1996, the Overseas is a modern luxury sports watch designed by Dino Modolo and Vincent Kaufmann. It’s Vacheron Constantin’s offering to the luxury steel sports watch market, just like Audemars Piguet has the Royal Oak, and Patek Philippe boasts Nautilus.
