Some reworked photos of this beauty belonging to our dear Don Justino ( well, you guessed, from the strap. wink  )







They don't make watches like this anymore...  Just superb. 

Best,

The hands are beautiful as well!

I don't think I've ever seen it before....

Fantastic watch!

Interesting, unusual, stylish, and, at least IMHO, not overdone, not too much at 37mm and white dial. For comparison look at this 43mm MOP dial - rather different story, IMHO. ...  

Whatever happened to the Bulletin D’Observatoire?

Are they still offering their chronometre-check services?

No one is…

This is not my type of watches. I'm a lover of simplicity.

But here it works so good. The layout of the dial is fantastic, and the case very sensual. I think this watch is clearly overdone, but this is its charm, its baroque charm, in such a tasteful way... just superb. 😍

😀 I see what you meen and agree

but it is fun to see words "clearly overdone", "tasteful way" and "just superb" in one sentence. I would rather say "strong but tasteful style", but it is just me and English is not my mother tongue.

Same for me. ;)

English isn't my mother tongue either.

Perhaps overdone isn't the right word. 🤔 But I think we are understanding each other. 😃

Sure!

A gorgeous RD

I totally agree.

So hard to read but I really don't care...

...as the case is one of the greatest cases ever. The only case/dial better for RD is the one where the crystal follows the contours of the case.

Mamma mia!!!
