Vacheron Constantin redesigned the Overseas collection in 2016, and this week they added two new versions with black dials. One is a three-hand watch and the other is a chronograph, the latter of which has a reverse Panda dial.

The three-hand model comes in a steel case that measures 41 mm x 11 mm. The chronograph also comes in steel and measures 42.5 mm x 13.7 mm.

Both versions have a black lacquered dial with a circular satin-finished flange and 18K white gold hour-markers and hour and minute hands. The latter also has snailed counters.

The three-hand watch is powered by caliber 5100, an automatic 4Hz in-house movement with a 22K gold oscillating weight, and the chronograph is powered by caliber 5200, which is an automatic 4Hz movement with a 22K gold oscillating weight.

Each variation has the options of a steel bracelet or integrated black rubber strap.

There is a not a lot to see here, basically just new black dials. The chronograph, in particular, is interesting in that it now has a white-on-black reverse panda configuration. Will be interesting to see if they ever go with a true panda dial, which I think would be amazing.

These will be available in July. Retail is $30,300 in steel for the chronograph.
