Amid all of the releases appearing from Watches & Wonders Shanghai 2020, one of the clearest trends has been the pairing of increased gold or pink cases with blue dials. When done correctly, it may be a showcase for both striking high contrast and luxury materials function, and many brands have shown variations on the subject since the trade show’s opening. Among those highest-profile entrances into this burgeoning section comes in Replica Vacheron Constantin Travelling Exhibition, which attracts this sumptuous high impact combination to the three-hand incorporated bracelet Overseas using a new pink gold case. While this isn’t the first time pink gold was utilized in the Overseas series (a set of pink golden Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin variations were published in April 2020), the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding in pink gold handsomely brings this colour combination to the centerpiece of this line.
The 41mm instance of the new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding utilizes 18k 5N pink stone, which from first images seems to toe a middle ground between more common rose or red gold and classic yellow gold. It seems to be a delicate, blush-like tone which helps to emphasize the brushed finishing on the main case body. Outside the new material, this instance maintains all of the hallmark elements of the Overseas series, like the unique gear-like bezel, the integrated lugs, and little unguarded screwdown crown. Vacheron Constantin Replica carries a sapphire display caseback and certifies the case with a 150 meter water resistance rating.
Like the scenario, the dial of this new Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self-Winding follows the traditional Overseas formula with a new interpretation that is vibrant. The blue sunburst surface appears in pictures to be a deep royal blue, with a comparatively dramatic shift from light to dark shades at different angles. This deeper tone looks to offset the slightly lighter shade of pink used in the event and dial hardware, providing these complementary colours with further contrast. The 3 o’clock date window will not noticeably disrupt the general visual stream, however, and also a no-date version may be a cleaner choice in the future.
