Description

The 70s was a challenging decade for the Swiss mechanical watch industry, and the direction to take was to introduce a luxury sports watch in steel. The Royal Oak and the Nautilus were already on the shelves and it was time for Vacheron, the oldest continuous watch manufacturer to respond.

Hence the first overseas the Reference 222 was launched in 1977. Over the years, the Overseas has evolved into one of the most recognized models not just within the Vacheron catalogue, but also in watches generally.
1999 saw the introduction of a chronograph based on a Frédéric Piguet 1185 modified with the addition of a large date mechanism. And in 2006, a dual time Overseas was added to the collection, featuring second time zone, power reserve, day night and date indications.

Since then there have been a few more complications added to the collection such as the Ultra-thin Perpetual Calendar and the Worldtime.

 

The Vacheron Constantin Overseas Chronograph Leicester City Football Club Edition, reference 49150/000A-B224, is a remarkable timepiece that celebrates the spirit of football with elegance and sophistication. This watch boasts a 42mm stainless steel case, which features a beautifully polished caseband and bezel, while the rest is finished with a satin brush, creating a striking visual contrast.

The gorgeous blue dial is not only eye-catching but also functionally rich. It displays time, date, chronograph functions, and a small seconds counter. Unique to this model, the small seconds counter proudly exhibits ‘Leicester City Football Club’ inscribed within, paying homage to the celebrated football team. The dial’s 18K white gold black oxidized hands and faceted 18K white gold markers are both filled with Super-LumiNova, ensuring legibility in various lighting conditions.

Driving this exquisite piece is an automatic movement with a 40-hour power reserve, testament to Vacheron Constantin’s renowned craftsmanship in watchmaking.

Adding to its distinctive character, the caseback features a special engraving of the Leicester City Football Club fox, a nod to the team’s emblem and a feature that is sure to delight fans and collectors alike.

Completing the watch’s athletic yet refined aesthetic is a full stainless steel bracelet with Vacheron links and a deployment buckle. This ensures not only a secure and comfortable fit but also adds a touch of elegance, making this timepiece perfect for both sporting events and formal occasions.
