Vacheron Constantin has made crossing time zones effortless with the Overseas Dual Time watch

Can’t decide between a rugged, practical watch and a dressy timepiece? Vacheron Constantin puts this conundrum to rest with the Overseas Dual Time watch.

With its distinct Maltese cross-inspired bezel, stylish semi-tonneau case shape and casually elegant dial, the latest member of the Overseas family looks as seamless with your activewear as it does under the cuff of your best suit.

The Overseas Dual Time comes in pink gold or stainless steel, with a choice of a very “typically Overseas” deep blue lacquered face, or a steely and somewhat edgy silver-toned dial. And as with all Overseas watches, the dials are given a sunburst satin texture while the flange receives a velvet finish.

Aesthetics aside, Vacheron Constantin takes into consideration the bewildered state you often find yourself in when landing in a new city and has made the Overseas Dual Time watch a breeze to adjust, with all the information you need presented in a legible manner.

Apart from the hour, minute, and seconds hands for local time, a central hand functions as a home time indicator. And just so you don’t have to second-guess the time of day in your hometown, the watch also features a day and night indicator.

Both time zones are adjusted via the main crown, with the local time jumping in one-hour increments. There’s also a date display that is set via the second crown that’s tied to the local time display.

And possibly our favourite feature? The watch’s smart and very easy-to-use strap changing system, which allows you to snap the straps on and off—sans tools—as you wish.

Each watch comes with two extra straps; the steel version comes with a stainless steel bracelet with Maltese cross motif links, a blue or black alligator leather strap, and a blue or black rubber strap, while the rose gold model comes with a brown alligator strap and a brown rubber strap.

So, if you’re on the hunt for that one timepiece that will make an attractive, reliable and low-maintenance companion to your frequent travels, Vacheron Constantin's Overseas Dual Time makes a compelling proposition.
