My goal for 2022 was to consolidate and get a JLC Duometre Chronograph

I have sold 3 watches in 2022 with one more to go. I almost pulled the trigger a few weeks ago on a Duometre in rose gold. Then I came across this and I just couldn’t resist. It’s really an unplanned purchase but I feel given its rarity I won’t have anoth...  

Thank you!

What material is the case?

This is the first gen of 1858 Rattrapante in bronze.

I never owned a watch with bronze case before so this is the first one.

Wow! Super congrats!
