Presenting what may actually be my ‘exit watch’. Arrived today
What I plan to do is get down to a core ‘collection’ of 4 watches, a tough task to be sure. There really isn’t much out there I’m interested in, but always loved the Quattro since it’s introduction in 2002. The ability to store 9 days of PR in 4 stacked barrels, and still active chronometer certification, is pretty impressive to me. That, and keeping it thin, are all high notes for me. In choosing this watch, it ticks a lot of boxes for me and I was happy to find a brand new example at a dealer in Switzerland.
Limited edition of only 50 in the world
Rose gold with brushed case flanks
‘Fairmined’ ethical gold standard
case designed, gold smelted, and produced in-house
9 day PR
8.8mm, nicely thin for this power reserve
43mm diameter. I like larger dressy watches
hand engraved caseback
Vertically brushed silver dial with blued hands and indices for excellent contrast
Chopard’s superb alligator straps with alligator lining
In house produced brushed and beveled tang buckle
Last but not least, the confidence I have in Chopard for the friendly and outstanding service I’ve gotten in the past; that means a lot to me.
All-in-all, a superb piece and one that I’ll be happy to enjoy for many years to come
