Amid all the releases emerging from Watches & Wonders Shanghai 2020, one of the clearest trends has been the pairing of rose gold or pink cases with blue dials. When done correctly, it can be a showcase for both striking high contrast and luxury materials function, and several manufacturers have shown variants on the subject since the trade show’s opening. Among those highest-profile entrances into this burgeoning section comes in Vacheron Constantin, which attracts this sumptuous high impact combination to the three-hand integrated bracelet Overseas using a new pink gold case. Even though this is not the first time pink gold has been utilized from the Overseas series (a set of pink golden Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin variations were released back in April 2020), the new Vacheron Constantin Grande Sonnerie Wristwatch Overseas Self-Winding in pink gold handsomely brings this color combination to the centerpiece of the line.
The 41mm case of this new Vacheron Constantin Replica Overseas Self-Winding uses 18k 5N pink stone, which from initial images appears to toe a middle ground between more common rose or red gold and traditional yellow gold. It seems to be a delicate, blush-like tone which helps to highlight the brushed finishing on the primary case body. Outside the new material, this case maintains all the hallmark elements of the Overseas series, such as the distinctive gear-like bezel, the integrated lugs, and little unguarded screwdown crown.
