    Question Vacheron Constantin Overseas question

    Hello, I have a burning question. I have a Vacheron Constantin Overseas watch and it has a among other dials one that puzzles me the most. It is written antimagnetic on the bottom half and automatic on the top one. What does that mean? Why it moves from one to the other during the day? And on what is based it\'s movement (i mean what does it indicate)? I know what antimagnetic means but why does that dial move from antimagnetic to automatic ?

    Seeing a picture of the dial would be a huge help. The "Automatic" and "Antimagnetic" just describe the watch itself and not the function of the dial. If the dial moves from one side to the other from day to night it is likely a 24 hour dial (Makes one full revolution in 24 hours), useful when traveling.

    Post a pic of the watch on your wrist ...

    I can't believe someone would have the funds to purchase that watch and not know the answer.

    drster,
    Maybe it was a gift, or an heirloom passed down.

    Artanis,
    these are two different qualities that watch offers.

    It uses an automatic movement for time. Meaning, you don't need to change batteries, as long as the watch is in motion it will keep on ticking.

    The watch is antimagnetic, meaning that the magnetic fields found in parts around the world will not effect the telling and running of time, when you are in these locations

    Hope that helps.

    Okay to answer all the questions this watch was given to me as a gift and I never seen such a dial before. I didn't even knew what anti-magnetic is. The watch is like in the image above.

    Thank you all for your help.
    After further inspection of the watch, DoctorC was right
    The "Automatic" and "Antimagnetic" just describe the watch itself and not the function of the dial
    .
    The dial makes a full revolution in 24 hours just as DoctorC mentioned.
    I thought if it's written on the dial must mean something or that the watch has some kind of fazes under witch it operates, but I was wrong it's just the function of the watch written inside the dial :oops: (silly me).
