Encapsulating the spirit of travel in one epic campaign, luxury watch brand Vacheron Constantin has partnered with leading American photographer Steve McCurry to unveil the Overseas Tour – a series of extraordinary images taken in 12 iconic locations around the world.

The collaboration is a celebration of the brand's 20th anniversary of the Overseas collection, the newest models of which were unveiled at SIHH earlier this year along with news of McCurry's worldwide photographic tour. The choice of 12 locations is a nod to the hours on a watch dial, and the first six locations have been revealed to be Geneva (the birthplace of Vacheron Constantin), India, China, United States, Mexico and Japan, with McCurry capturing the often lesser seen and esoteric facets of each country. 

In these exclusive images, we can see the lengths to which the photographer has gone to distill the perfect moment in each of these locations – from shooting through falling snow in Akita, Japan, to working under the baking sun in Abhaneri, Rajasthan and the Mexican desert.
