A piece that I haven't posted in a while. Minimalist elegance paired with a spectacular movement.

Despite the vintage vibes of the sector dial it feels contemporary and can certainly be a daily wearer. When it was released some compared it to LF because of the dial. I don't think that's fair - such sector could be found on vintage watches and there are plenty of differences. Not to mention that beyond the dial the two watches look totally different.

I don't think the price was unreasonable, 15K at the time.

A bargain considering what happened in the past few years ...

I say it's overpriced.

... but it might just be that other models are undervalued. I paid a very similar amount for one of the new Quattro 42mm (which reminds me to post a picture here) models in white gold with the Geneva Seal. These Jubliee/Revolution QF models are very attra... 

You are right that a lot of LUC pieces are totally undervalued in the secondary market.

The quattro is a great example. But I was thinking of last year's 1860 as a comparable and that's a 25K watch. If I want sector dial no date, high end micro rotor movement then I need to go to PP or LF which are at completely different price level.

it's amazing that these are so cheap

www.chrono24.com Almost all your criteria.

I agree - totally crazy!

Some people don't like a date, but still Chopard certainly had marketing issues, most people knew of the happy diamonds ladies watches. Or the jewelry. Only after Alpine eagle things slowly stated to change and their timing with the 1860 was lucky - exact... 

Yes, really nice one.

Thank you! Indeed pretty rare, and I am a bit sad about it being so limited.

The design is so good - more people should have been able to experience it.

Lovely watch!

You have at least a couple of chopard pieces that are equally special!

I do appreciate how they can always do something unique, whatever type of watch it is.

That is true indeed! Enjoy yours!

Lovely dial...

...my only issue is the odd high-up placement of the seconds hand...

Never seen this watch but it’s a

STUNNER! WOW! I’d go for that in a New York second. Great catch!

Thank you very much - it is truly a watch ready for any occasion!

Except swimming of course! But East river should best be avoided anyway ...

You are a really lucky man.

Beautiful execution, one of the best sector dial around. And going for what, $15,000 at the time this limited edition came out? It’s as good, or better, than watches going for twice the price.

Love this

When it was first announced I remember going into MUST HAVE IT mode... but I didn't get it... and moved on. Hope these photos don't drag me back in!

Beautiful dial

And a great movement. Chopard did very well on that reference.

Wonderful piece !

I recall vacillating on purchasing it when I had the chance, and still regret not having pulled the trigger. Congratulations, it looks fantastic.

A truly lovely piece indeed 👌🏻👍🏻
