The sporty-chic model created especially for the ladies is back with a precious novel variation only available on the Chinese market in a limited edition.


The link between Vacheron Constantin and the “Middle Kingdom” can be traced back to the 19th century. From that moment on, this source of stylistic inspiration made its mark as a can’t-do-without market, driven by numerous collectors. Since 2012, the Métiers d’art The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac has been celebrating the Chinese New Year. This time round, for classy Chinese lady connoisseurs, the Manufacture proposes a limited series of its Overseas Quartz produced in just 150 pieces. This version has been imagined around a 33 mm-diameter and 9.37 mm-slim rose gold case. 78 brilliant-cut diamonds (around 0.78 carats) dazzle on its six-sided bezel, a design that recalls the brand’s beloved Maltese cross. The dial features subtle shades, lacquered translucent denim blue enhanced with a satin-brushed sunburst finish. Above, exquisite hands hover over an hour chapter made up only of indexes. The presence of Super-LumiNova® on these components ensures excellent readability under any conditions of light. The luminescent paint captures light during the day and emits it in the dark. This magnificent piece hosts a quartz movement, the 1207 AS caliber, which drives the time data, including the date displayed in its aperture at 3 o’clock.

What’s more, to delight everyone, this Overseas Quartz model is set off by two comfortable straps attached by a folding clasp. This calfskin and rubber duo matches the dial wonderfully well with its azure hue. An ingenious integrated system allows the wearer to change them whenever, wherever.
