That Bucherer is quite something. There's a bit of the Lange about it in the balance of Day and Date displays somehow. Cannot be a bad thing :)
Really gorgeous piece any way you strike it.

I like this, but my first steps in to the world of omega would probably be the blue 39.5mm PO which is, coincidentally, the watch that I’m dreaming about :D

Czapek & Cie ... Took me a while to find that out. I'll take a blue dial, and that movement ... nice! :thumbup:

The integrated bracelet market is certainly picking up.

Now, Neil.....
You do have a knack for finding beautiful things I can't afford. I'd want the centre links brushed though.

That Bucherer is still plenty nice. Plenty.

The first one did instantly make me do a little "phwoar" under my breath, so that must be a good sign! An absolute belter. And I'm not going to look up the price because that will just spoil things! :)

Those two are limited edition, so probably slightly more than the normal colour dials.

Chap on TZ-UK recently did a great review of his blue dial on bracelet model.

I think they are about £11k on a bracelet, which with a discount would bring it to under £10k. Preowned even better. :thumbup:

Or put another way - less than the likely proceeds from selling a couple of preowned Rolex...

40mm case, with a lug to lug of 48mm.

Glad to have been of help. :)

I did a little one of those too - I just couldn’t spell it! This watch is beautiful and handsome at the same time. I would absolutely wear it as a daily wear watch. Those square pushers! :thumbup:
