My first Chopard

Jul 28, 2021,16:48 PM

L.U.C Classic 1937 with Silver Dial, black Alligator. Ordered extra strap Green Alligator from Kaufmann Straps. Fascinating and elegant watch with Roman numerals. After 16 watches in 7years I ended with my number 17 here. A lot of watch for not to much money. Will it be a keeper for me? - I just hope. 
Regards, Daniel

Thanks for your welcome. Chopard really knows how to make beautiful watches! So many people don't recognize this brand.

Hands and numerals are top-drawer...

...but I'd prefer it without the date.

Date window

I will always miss it, if there is no date window.

Simply nice

Cool choice

Too bad Chopard is not more successful amongst collectors, their movements are certainly top notch from what I can see Here is one that has been on my mind for many years: quite a perfect daily dress watch if such a thing exists. Credit Timeandtide ...  

Great choice!

I've long had an interest in this watch, but never handled one in person. At 42mm with a thin bezel and expansive dial, I've always held back, thinking it'd wear too big for me. What do you think, size and feel wise?

Great choice, yes !

The watch is 42mm and 10.66mm, weight is 80gr. For my arm of 18cm it is just nice. Not heavy, very comfortable. But I don't want it to be bigger, to be honest. Watches of 43mm and more I don't like on my wrist. At last it depends on the style of the brace...  

Just perfect on your wrist..
