Am not sure I will be able to resist this one!

I got confused by the intense lighting at the AD (see lat two pictures) which is likely not the typical experience for normal lighting…but boy it’s a nice fit on the wrist…also love the “monochrome” feel of the dial color.  Even if this is marketed as a 41mm, it wears more like a 39mm

That’s one handsome wristwatch. Cheers Kurt.

Thanks Kurt!

That dial is nice in every variation 👌🏽

Is this steel or titanium? I believe there is a titanium version also with grey dial.

👍

Steel and it feel good with a nice weight!

I will sleep on it but strong chance to join the stable!

Very nice watch…

That looks great on your wrist ! 👌🏻

Thanks!

Agree that it looks small in these pictures.

 
 By: Lankysudanese : December 17th, 2022-18:22
But the ecologically-sourced stainless and dial are 👌🏿

Thanks! The fit is really good! Will see 😉

The date at 4:30 was always a no-go for me…

Even when this version of the Cadence came out..I was not able to move out of my comfort zone. Then came the Maritime Seaside Blue and now I have 2 watches with this date cutout. When I took a lume shot, seeing all the indices light up, unlike the usual d... 

Totally 💯, how difficult is that right and so many brands didn’t even bother…

All the AE variants have matching date wheel, kudos to Chopard.

Spot on

I drive myself crazy wondering why a watch with a white dial, blue numbers has a date window with black numbers, ie my UN Classico for example. I liked it and thought it want a big deal but can’t get over how easy and inexpensive it would be just to print... 

Indeed the date window here is not too bad ☺️

Well I am pretty much looking at this reference because of you!

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 17th, 2022-22:25
In the flesh it is very impressive in terms of feel, size and quality. The green dial in an also a possibility until I can get a limited edition 😉. Which would you pick between the green dial and this one?

I would pick the green if I am to choose between grey and green…

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : December 17th, 2022-23:07
What’s not to like when these are made available to us today…wait till like AP or PP when we can’t get any?

Thanks! I still like both but if I can’t get the green I think this grey is cool too!

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 17th, 2022-23:54
I am getting a blue dial oversea after Xmas and hopefully a green dial relic OP as well so this grey would be different!

The green should be available at their boutiques but I understand you should stick to your AD....

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : December 18th, 2022-00:03
Congrats on your blue dial overseas....I can see they are showering you with love )

I am planning to add a few more VC in 2023 😎😉

When this line was released

 
 By: aWtchslvr : December 17th, 2022-18:57
it left me a bit cold until I saw them and n the metal. They are beautiful. I think this is the Ti version, 21k. Maybe too much money for not being a LUC, imho.

Gorgeous dials on these!

 
 By: vallura : December 17th, 2022-19:16

Indeed!

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 17th, 2022-22:31

That dial is certainly something!

 
 By: KCLQMULKU : December 17th, 2022-21:36
I know what you mean about sizes which ultimately depends on the actual size of the dial minus the bezel (IMHO). I had a similar experience with my 5146G which looked much smaller in person than what the size suggested. A great looking watch and will be p... 

Since you are open to the green dial…

 
 By: ArmisT : December 17th, 2022-23:00
then the one reservation I have against this grey dial is that it’s monochromatic compared to the nuanced contrast of the green dial. Don’t get me wrong, I love love grey dial pieces including this one; but their green is a nice hue that contrasts just en... 

Makes total sense! Will see if the green is an option from an availability perspective and decide after

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 17th, 2022-23:57
I also like the monochromatic aspect of grey but the green would be cool too

Nice size for your wrist.

Thanks buddy!

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 17th, 2022-23:57

Why not!!!

 
 By: amanico : December 18th, 2022-00:50

Indeed! 😎

I am pleased to say that Mrs E and I both got on the Alpine Eagle train when it first came out - his and hers in the blue dial. I’m wearing mine now, about to travel for a month. It’s a great watch - and lovely to see that it’s starting to get some recogn... 

I must say in the flesh it’s a spectacular watch and the movement performs really well also…still hesitating between this grey and the green (trying to see if I could get the green)..

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 18th, 2022-13:01
But surely it will be one of these two. I am missing some full metal watch in my collection

got mine in green yesterday

 
 By: perregaux1 : December 18th, 2022-15:45
...  

Indeed I noticed that too when I tried

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 18th, 2022-15:57

Congrats! It looks stunning

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : December 18th, 2022-15:56

Congrats - wear it in good health!

 
 By: Esharp : December 18th, 2022-17:18
The green is nice, very subtle. Best E.

Congratulations
