Let me say, this watch simply oozes class.
I bought this new from the Westfields boutique in White City London last week and have worn it every day since.
This will become a fixture on my wrist for a while I think. It wears well as dress or casually and does not fail to attract passing glances from others.
It has a little more depth than my 2014-2 and is a little heavier than my Cal 17 Grand Carrera. You do not forget that this is on your wrist and yet it remains comfortable to wear due to the Carrera bracelet which in my opinion ranks amongst the best in looks and feel. This is a class watch.
In terms of accuracy, it gains around +3 regardless of on the wrist or crown down resting at night. The seconds sweep due to the small hand is 'spring drive' smooth and the chrono sweep is smooth and consistent across its 360 degrees. The crown has a very high quality feel when winding and the pushers have a lovely weighted action.
The hour markers on the dial catch the light beautifully and the case reflects day and night wonderfully across its polished surfaces.
Overall, I am super thrilled with this Carrera and I should have bought one a while ago already! Pictures do not do the watch justice and anyone who has been thinking of looking at this piece should not hesitate but try one on - you will not be disappointed.
