We showed you this watch a few months back, but I thought you’d like to take a look at some in-the-metal shots. This 42mm triple calendar chronograph with moonphase has a really vintage feel to it, and is actually based off a 1970s model. It of course uses the El Primero chronograph, coupled with full calendar – I’m not really sure why more companies don’t produce this combination of complication. The watch is great, though not without fault. The proportions of the dial are clearly off, with tiny little day and month apertures squeezed almost on top of the chronograph registers, which are themselves very tightly packaged in this case. The watch is not as nicely proportioned as the original, but is still handsome. Further, the price of this watch, $10,600, is very solid. Actually, it’s more than solid. So, not perfect, but a step in a great direction and reasonably priced for an in-house chronograph and full calendar. More on that here.
