Greetings. Thanks for looking at this watch. We are a 5-star seller on both Chrono24 and Trustpilot with hundreds of watches sold and delivered around the world.

Presenting a stunning Vacheron Constantin Overseas Ref: 47040 / B01A-9094, 42mm. Stainless Steel with Black Dial. Full Set of watch + box + papers. This watch is from 2012. Originally sold via Harrods. It was last serviced in August 2020 by Vacheron Constantin

What makes this watch super special is the superb condition with no dings or dents and immaculate box set, including watch passport and accompanying paperwork.

It is in perfect working order and looks fantastic making this sought-after watch an outstanding investment for any watch collector.

This watch is a conversation starter and a horological statement piece without having the same ‘look at me’ attention seeking of similar brands making it understated at the same time. It is a watch that will flood you with the good vibes that only a VC or AP or PP can, however with the latter two options being out of reach for most!

You are clearly a person of great style and taste if you are viewing this watch and this brand – because it takes a certain type of watch connoisseur to truly appreciate it’s class and elegance. It is by far one of the coolest watches I have ever had in my posession.

It looks great smart, or smart-casual; and with even sporty dress wear. It remains very thin for a sporty watch at just under 10mm, making it extremely comfortable and versatile for all occasions.

In 1977, Vacheron Constantin, the oldest watch manufacturer in continuous operation, celebrated its 222nd anniversary. For this reason, the brand decided to create a special watch, right in the middle of what was known as the “quartz crisis”. Swiss brands needed to reinvent themselves, making necessary and often, disruptive changes. This is when the Vacheron Constantin 222, a true luxury sports watch, was born – a watch that would later become an icon under the name Overseas. A new trend emerged: the luxury sports watch. Playing on this newly developed category, Vacheron Constantin created its own vision of what could be a mechanical, steel, ultra-thin sports watch worthy of the name printed on the dial, as an answer to its two main competitors (the two other members of the Holy Trinity; Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet).

The Overseas is a piece of exceptional watchmaking with incredible detailing from the maltese cross signature and iconic brand feature on the bezel and bracelet to the intricate dial and gorgeous caseback.

This is an elegant sports watch with a 150m water resistant factory rating and both anti-magnetic and shock resistance. The original Jorg Hysek design emerged in the late 70’s as Vacheron Constantin’s gentleman’s sport watch offering, standing shoulder to shoulder with the Royal Oak from Audemars Piguet and the Nautilus from Patek Philippe – both of which have become unaffordable and unobtainable to most collectors.

So “Congratulations” – this is your chance to get on board. You could soon be the proud owner of this high-end watch from a Holy Trinity brand that will surely become increase in collectability and appreciate in value over time.

Quick message from the seller.

“We believe a watch is far more than just a simple teller of time. It is a real-life companion that will emote feelings of happiness and joy through your life journey.

It is a mechanical life form that has spirit and personality and will inspire, motivate and generate positive energy from within.

If one day gifted to that special ‘someone’, a treasured watch will pass sentiment and meaning to the hands of others like few other gifts can achieve”

Our mission here is to spread ‘Watch Happiness’ around the world and promote the feelings of joy that come with buying a new watch.
