    Looks striking, the VCO blue dial has one of the best hues.

    Sorry, nice watch from a great horological house, but looks out of place in this picture. This watch is not a water-watch, more dress, cocktail/dinner party piece IMHO. And, integrated bracelets are not for me. Certainly, Vacheron are truly a great manufacture, but in general, they are sublime pieces with some wonderful complications, but not 'tool' watches.

    Nah, that’s the patrimony etc, the overseas is their stated “sports watch”.

    Agreed : it's a sports steel watch

    That’s a cracker. If only they made a sub-40mm I would be a happy man

    A watch with 150m WR is not a water watch? The overseas 3rd Gen comes with both steel & rubber straps, the Bracelet is one of the best out there (Better then the Rolex ones).

    I don't get how this is not a a water watch as the overseas is not a dress watch even on leather.

    I've gone running with both my 3 hand & duel time recently with no problems, Naturally watches of this price bracket are hard to class as "tool" watches people have desk diving subs for those.

    They are however meant to be used on a daily basis, much the same as expensive house are not just countryside retreats.

    Great picture!

    Funny to hear complaints that this doesn’t belong underwater on its interchangeable rubber strap - probably so many of us baby our watches, we forget that they’re designed precisely for this. After all, the Overseas, the RO and Nautilus are all about different engineering solutions to create a thin and elegant watch with a decent depth rating. As well as reflecting the VC logo, the shape of the bezel is determined by where it’s screwed down from the back, to make it possible to swim in something elegantly slim. Or at least, the first generation was slim, and even had an engraving of a ship on the reverse to make the point that it’s designed for a life at sea. Overseas or under seas, the clue is in the name!

    An excellent pic. Clearly someone who doesn’t think that steel sports watches are just for desk diving, or keeping in an unworn condition.

    Im going to have to join the majority here and say that the VC looks perfectly at home underwater.
    It's a big sturdy chunk of stainless... certainly not "dress, cocktail/dinner party".

    Vacheron Constantin seem to have seen a huge boost in popularity this past year or so.

    I'm not sure how you could be more wrong, it's their steel sports watch, designed for exactly what it's being used for in the picture. The general idea being a watch you don't have to take off to go swimming.

    PANIC!!! Water Resistant Watch getting wet!!!!

    Why is it generally thought fine to get a watch that looks like a Divers watch wet, but not a dress watch, even if the WR level is the same?? I rather like the idea of something being that slightly bit out of place.

    The best way to join the holy trinity

    Love the overseas. I think it has a balanced sports and dress look. Happy in either environment. This watch is a great way to join the holy trinity without selling the car and kids and still having some stealth about it. The price of these are only going to go in one direction.

    luckily for buyers, it’s the direction in their favour. Which I think is as it should be. The RRP meanwhile continues to climb in line with the weak pound against the Swiss franc.

    Yes down like most VC's but that wouldn't stop me buying one either.

    Absolutely lovely, and everything about it suggests that it's designed for activities like swimming, arguably excepting its replacement cost.
