Following the success of "The Overseas Tour" by Vacheron Constantin in Shanghai earlier this year, it's Hong Kong's turn to celebrate the Genevan watchmaker's new watches. The Overseas collection, first launched in 1996, has been reinterpreted for the 21st century. In collaboration with Vacheron Constantin, legendary photographer Steve McCurry travelled to 12 mystical destinations around the world to capture the spirit of travel and the passing of time in a series of captivating images. The exhibition opening party on 13 September welcomed Hong Kong celebrities, entertainers and collectors to debut "The Overseas Tour".
Geneva, India, China, New York, Japan, Russia, Scotland, Ethiopia, France, Uzbekistan and Morocco - now you can experience these 12 destinations around the world - through "The Overseas Tour" images shot by famous photographer Steve McCurry for Vacheron Constantin, in a special exhibition from 17 to 23 October at Harbour City, Hong Kong, and from 1 to 30 November in DFS Galleria, Macau.

Do you know that Vacheron Constantin is the world's oldest Genevan watch brand? Uninterrupted in its production ever since the brand's establishment in 1755 in Geneva, Switzerland, the Overseas collection was launched in 1996, and has been continuously developed since.
The 2016 Overseason collection, including the Overseas World Time references pictured above, is powered by in-house movements certified by the Hallmark of Geneva
The 21 innovative references are the perfect tribute to one of Vacheron Constantin's founders, François Constantin, who travelled tirelessly around the world to forge new markets. His business acumen and adventurous spirit, interpreted through the lens of celebrated photographer Steve McCurry, truly come alive in the exhibition.
