For insiders a quick information before we start... The Tourbillon launch was brought forward since there is a delay with the Fiftysix chronograph. The latter will probably launch at the SIHh 2019 next January.
I don't mind to see a tourbillon in the Fiftysix collection, since it is a complication that fits perfectly in the DNA of the 1755 founded Geneva based brand.
>>> ATTENTION! Important announcement! <<<
I will be publishing the novelties of the major brands of SIHH 2018 Monday, 15th starting at 08:00 CET ...
So if YOU want to be among the very first to discover the new timepieces, be sure to come back in time ...
Here are some general information about the upcoming SIHH 2018
Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time
The one and only question I ask when I get to see a new watch that was conceived for traveling is: Can I, when traveling through timezones with changing zone-times, adjust my local time without loosing the correct indicated minutes and seconds? In case of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time you can. The watch will independently indicate you your home-time and the date is of course linked to the local time.
The Geneva based manufacturer Vacheron Constantin, founded in 1755, is reinterpreting two calendar watches from 1942 and 1948.
