  • DIAL: I JUST HAVE TO SMILE WHEN I LOOK AT THIS FACE. THIS IS SO PAINFULLY 70s IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS. CHECK OUT THAT HORIZONTALLY BRUSHED DIAL WITH SOME GORGEOUS WARM TONING PATINA! THE ASYMMETRICAL CAL.15 SETUP GIVES THIS A SUPER FUNKY ATTITUDE. THE POWERFUL STEEL/BLACK HANDS MAKE FOR SOME WICKED LEGIBILITY AGAINST THAT LIGHT COLORED FACE. THE DATE AT 6 IS SUPER COOL!!! 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS RACY BABE IS POWERED BY THE LEGENDARY CAL.15 CHRONO MOVEMENT WHICH IS A BUREN MICRO-ROTOR AUTOMATIC WITH A DUBOIS DEPRAIS CHRONO MODULE BUILT ONTO IT. A CLOSE COUSIN TO THE CALIBER 11 AUTOMATIC CHRONO MOVEMENTS DEVELOPED IN 1969 BY HEUER, BUREN, HAMILTON, AND BREITLING. THIS ONE WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD RECENTLY SERVICED THID ONE IN 2018. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK SMOOTHLY AND THIS ONE IS RUNNING LIKE A DREAM!!

 

  • THIS CARRERA IS MOUNTED ON A HODINKEE 20mm BROWN PERFORATED STRAP WHICH LOOKS BOSS. THIS IS ONE OF THE LEGENDARY CHRONOGRAPHS OF THE EARLY 70s.
