Much like the Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time, we will get right to it. The new watch is a practical beater that, apart from the hours, minutes, and seconds of the day, also tracks the hour, via a central red arrow, as well as lets you know whether it is a day or night, through an AM/PM indicator (at nine o’clock), of the sweet place you call home. A date indicator (at six o’clock) reflects the date of wherever you are, too.

All functions are easily manipulated with two crowns: A main crown at three o’clock manages timezones, while a second pusher at four o’clock is for the date sub-dial. 

That’s it. And that’s really all you need. While the visual decadence of a tourbillon or the sweet ding of a minute repeater are things of wonder, most of the time what you want to know is whether the kids are awake and ready to receive your video call right now, right? 

Okay, one more thing: We’re going to amend that no-frills descriptor because this remains a Vacheron Constantin, so expect the flourishes and wizardry that come with a timepiece that sits in the stratosphere of luxury watchmaking here.

As expected the finishing is exquisite. The watch comes in a steel version with a silvery white or blue dial and options for a steel, alligator, or rubber strap. There is also an 18K pink gold version with the clean opalescent dial and brown leather and rubber straps. 

Of note, the straps are interchangeable without the use of tools, so you can easily change the look of the Overseas. Between the two versions, the steel of course is more accessible, one of the most accessible in the Vacheron family in terms of pricing.

The 5110 DT caliber is stamped with the Geneva Seal, an assurance of the highest excellence in finishing. When you're not observing two times, you can view everything through the sapphire caseback.
