Breguet 3237 Chronograph " Tuxedo " Onyx dial.

We can objectively say that the 3237 with this Onyx dial is rare. I only saw 4 during all these years, 3 in photos, one in person, which led me to take some photos to share with you. It seems that there is a 5th one hidden in another collection, as well as at least one in yellow gold. 

The 3237 Onyx was issued in 1994 / 1995. Typically Breguet with its " coin " side case, which is 36 mm big, while the next one, ref 5237 was 2 mm bigger.

Isn't that small? I don't think so:

The best part of this watch is, of course, its dial, silver hand guilloché, with an outer ring made in Onyx. Elegance, strength, class, this combination is just sublime.

The movement is well known, here, the Lemania 2310 which we find some popular chronographs such as the Patek 5070, the Vacheron les Historiques and / or Malte Chronographs, and if my memory serves me well, in a Roger Dubuis from the same era.

Class, elegant, rare, refined, this is the kind of watch which gives off some strong feelings when you see it in person. That is exactly why I wanted to share it with you, here.

I haven’t ever seen this watch before.  Thank you for sharing. I could see it be an inspiration to the early FPJ perpetual that had a similar football shaped inner dial.

Watches and Wonders 2024: Some thoughts and wishes about the CHOPARD MILLE MIGLIA CLASSIC CHRONOGRAPH JX7.

Chopard comes with a new version of the MILLE MIGLIA, called CLASSIC CHRONOGRAPH JX7, which is a limited edition of 250 pieces Nothing really new under the sun, with the exception of a superb deep dark blue dial and a nice decoration on the case back. Even if I would have preferred a solid case back for some reasons I will mention below, mainly because of the movement. As for the dial, I would have gone for a " no date " version. At 4.30, this date kills the purity and the symmetry of this very cool looking ...
