Contemplating a 36mm 5800 (pre-Swatch) on a bracelet

It has a JLC 889 inside, I'm interested in the yellow gold case and bracelet. Dial versions include this yellow guilloche, a more usual silver guilloche, and a rare mother of pearl dial. What do you think about this yellow version?
This was the first Breguet that caught my eye, back in the early 90s.

I think I like it in WG better, but the yellow is rich and beautiful. This design was by the Chaumet Brothers when they owned Breguet and resurrected it as a matchmaking concern. Prior, Breguet merely serviced their historic pieces and now and then had a piece unique made by outside firms for special customers. When InvestCorp purchased Breguet from Chaumet it kept some of the latter's designs-this one included, I believe.
