The Overseas collection welcomes a perpetual calendar ultra-thin skeleton in 18k pink gold, a high-complication addition that carries on the travel-inspired spirit of the range.

Much appreciated by collectors for its reliability, its extreme precision and its performance, the extremely thin 4.05mm selfwinding Calibre 1120 QPSQ is now joining the Overseas collection in a new guise. Entirely openworked, which is a feat in itself, it reveals its mechanical intricacies beneath a sapphire crystal. The transparent caseback also stages a fascinating watchmaking show starring the gear trains and the NAC-treated oscillating weight with its segment in 22K gold, which is also openworked as to highlight its stylised design shaped like a Maltese cross. All components of the 1120 QPSQ calibre have been hollowed out, finished and decorated, so as to exalt the functional beauty of the mechanism.

To fully match the style of Overseas, the movement has benefited from special finishing work, entirely performed by hand. An anthracite grey shade obtained by means of a NAC electrolytic treatment gives the mechanism a very modern face. The dial bears applied 18K 5N pink gold hour-markers, the Maltese cross emblem as well as day, date and monthcounter rings. This design ensures that the watch is perfectly legible while allowing the gaze to roam freely through the heart of the movement.

Like all models in the Overseas collection, this exceptional watch offers a modular touch via a simple and convenient bracelet/strap interchangeability system. Fitted with a gold bracelet whose satinbrushed half Maltese cross-shaped links underline the elegance of the timepiece, it also comes with two additional straps in blue alligator leather and blue rubber.
