Here we go with a quick article on the Overseas lineup as of June 2020. Some of this may be old news but I had received a number of DM’s on some of these subjects. Read on…

BRONZE DIAL 4500V & 5500V END OF SALE

It had been rumoured for quite some time that the bronze dial overseas were cancelled but I was keeping my eye on the site for some time and these two watches were still available on the site. Not so as of June 2020, where they have now officially disappeared.

5500V-110A-B147

The first Overseas 4500V I ever tried on was the bronze dial variant and it was just absolutely stunning. It was actually my favourite of all the coloured dials! I kick myself every time I see a post on Instagram or the Facebook group featuring this gorgeous dial and I talked myself into buying the silver dial instead (which is still great, don’t get me wrong!) because I valued the versatility of the silver dial instead.

If you’re an owner of this timepiece, then I am rather jealous. Especially as it will have sold in low volumes between 2016 and 2020 – it’ll be pretty rare, and hopefully see some value rise!

WHITE GOLD OVERSEAS 2000V/120G-B122 END OF SALE

Another watch that has now vanished from the site is the 2000V Overseas in full white gold. This watch was released in 2016 along with the other generation 3 Overseas watches and was the top-of-the-line model with a white gold bracelet. It featured 50m water resistance and the ultra thin calibre 1120.

With all the fanfare of the recent releases of the pink gold Overseas lineup with Perpetual calendar this reference seemed somewhat sidelined. However to alot of enthusiasts it was the perfect sized overseas, with no-date, but sadly out of reach of most buyers in terms of budget.

Again – super rare, absolutely gorgeous, and will be missed!

NEW STRAP RELEASE: WHITE RUBBER

A friend of mine and I had a back-and-forth with the London boutique and it seems that while you can customise any leather strap for the Overseas, the rubber range of straps was still restricted to the black, blue and brown straps. He did managed to procure a “grey” strap from VC directly, but it was so similar to the black that it wasn’t enough of a difference to hold on to.

Fear not, as there is now a white rubber strap available for purchase, at circa £270. Contact your boutique or authorised dealer to purchase.

I am hoping for some more pictures when they arrive in the boutique but due to the COVID-19 situation, there are still delays. For now, a little “borrow” from Instagram was in order.
