A perpetual calendar wristwatch is a type of watch that tracks and displays the date, day of the week, month, and leap years. The display usually features a moon phase indicator as well. What sets it apart from a regular calendar watch is its ability to automatically adjust for the varying lengths of months and leap years, without the need for manual adjustment. This means that the watch will accurately display the correct date even during leap years and won’t require adjustment until the year 2100, which is a non-leap year, considering that the watch will run continuously until then.


As a watch enthusiast and journalist, I am often asked: “Which one is your favorite?“. With my face blushing at the sight of the pieces that I love the most, my heart pounding at the sight of horological complications, and my mouth drooling over exceptional finishes, it is hard to pinpoint my favorite every year. As a (sometimes) pragmatist, I understand why certain watches are loved, desired or bought more than others. It is like asking the mom or dad of a family with several children which is their favorite child – in theory, all of them are, but they might still recognize that they have a favorite.


When it comes to elegance in sports watches, the Overseas collection from Vacheron Constantin stands out. With clean and precise lines inspired by historical models, the Overseas is the go-to choice for both ladies and gentlemen collectors. Easily recognizable from afar for those in the know, it still remains fairly neutral for the large masses accustomed to more mainstream brands and models. This year, the Grande Maison has released two new, more delicate sizes: a 34.5mm version, available in steel and gold with a blue dial, and a gem-set 35mm version available in a pink gold case with a blue dial, and in a steel case with a pink dial.
