38mm CS question

Feb 07, 2024,18:02 PM

I have an appointment next week to try on a platinum 38mm CS with silver guilloche dial. I know the 38mm with silver guilloche also came in a rose gold case. My question: was the 38mm CS ever made with the flat white non guilloche dial? Because of my small wrist size, I likely wouldn’t be able to manage a 40mm CS. Thank you.

From my understanding that does exist but only around a handful where made with the flat dial.

You are lucky to find any 38 mm CS. They only became popular when they got discontinued and were never popular when available so quite scarce. Collectors who have them tend to hang on to them.

For sure uncommon to see these 38mm pop up.

Hopefully the one I’m going to see doesn’t sell before I get there.

That is my understanding as well

But for my money, the guilloche dial is the way to go! I'm not just saying that because it's the one I own. I think the painted numerals on the guilloche dial are far preferable to the applied numerals on the flat dials. I think of this watch as a ship's ...  

Lovely pics, thanks for posting.

I really like the guilloche and am looking for a slightly more casual and less dressy vibe.

My main issue with the 40mm would be the L2L which is a bit over 46mm I believe.

Whereas it is less than 45mm with the 38mm version.
