Vacheron Constantin Overseas vs Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph 5980/1A 5500V/110A-B148

Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Watch collectors and watch buyers have asked, and now we’ve answered with the much-anticipated comparison of the Vacheron Overseas Chronograph and the Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph. Vacheron Constantin’s Overseas generation three offers unrivaled features and value in the ultra luxury sports watch class, but the Patek Philippe Nautilus – especially the discontinued steel Nautilus Chronograph – remains a point of reference for watch buyers in this marketplace. Today, we pit the Overseas Chronograph against the Nautilus Chronograph in a battle of stainless steel Swiss sports watches of impeccable pedigrees! The stainless steel Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980/1A bowed at Baselworld 2006, but it has been discontinued for half a decade. This 40.5mm flyback chronograph embodies Gerald Genta’s classical design language with a Patek Philippe manufacture caliber CH 28-520 automatic chronograph movement. It employs a vertical clutch and column wheel for crisp and refined operation, enjoys 120-meter water resistance, and offers a practical 60-minute chronograph display. A Patek Philippe stainless steel bracelet offers rich hand finished polish, satin graining, and a secure clamshell closure. Vacheron Constantin launched its third generation Overseas Chronograph at SIHH 2016. The chronograph measures a substantial 42.5mm in diameter, and this robust sizing makes the Overseas an equally viable rival to the Nautilus Chronograph, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph, and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. Each Overseas Chronograph in stainless steel ships with a full bracelet, a rubber strap, an alligator leather strap, and a steel deployant clasp for use with the straps. Quick release lugs allow watch collectors to swap straps and bracelets on their Vacheron Constantin sports watch without resort to tools. A Vacheron caliber 5200 automatic movement powers the Overseas Chronograph 5500V. The movement is Vacheron’s first in-house automatic chronograph movement, and it boasts a 52-hour power reserve. The Geneva Hallmark and five-position adjustment assure both beauty and precision; a vertical clutch and column wheel match the Patek’s refinement. Remarkably the Overseas Chronograph is both water resistant to 150 meters and secure against magnetic fields of up to 25,000 amperes per meter. Despite this rugged reinforcement, the Vacheron Overseas Chronograph sports an expansive sapphire display case back. Ultimately, this Vacheron Constantin Overseas costs $26,000 U.S. when pre-owned; the discontinued Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph 5980/1A-001 costs $90,000 U.S. Which one would you pick with and without price as a consideration.
