What we have here is the very first tourbillon ever to join the Overseas collection. It’s stainless steel, in keeping with this ranges roots, and, coming with extra rubber and alligator straps, it features Vacheron’s easy strap change system. The tourbillon caliber used for this new watch is the in-house caliber 2160, which features automatic winding via a peripheral rotor and a massive-for-a-tourbillon 80-hour power reserve. Viewed from the back, this is a nice looking movement thanks to the peripheral winding system, which ensure that the winding mechanism never blocks the tourbillon. It’s also a relatively new caliber that debuted just last year in gold and platinum executions in the Traditionnelle line, which I enjoyed wearing when I reviewed it last year. It also joins GMT, chronograph and perpetual calendar options in the Overseas range, signaling that Vacheron is intent on building out its sports luxury line with a wide range of features and complications.
