The favourite line of keen travellers, devotees of timepieces combining sporting elegance and technical Fine Watchmaking, is being enriched with two sophisticated and refined new models. The signature features of the Overseas collections are all there : flowing lines, a Maltese Cross-inspired bezel, a case-back enhanced with a raised medallion depicting the famous three-masted Amerigo Vespucci… In its Chronograph version, the Overseas features a 42 mm steel case framing a deep blue dial enlivened by chronograph functions as well as a large date display. The Overseas Chronograph Perpetual Calendar in pink gold matches the classic chronograph functions with those of the perpetual calendar : day of the week, date, 48-month counter with leap years and moon phase.
