While I await the 1938 chronograph black, I wanted to share thoughts on 1938. I have owned the watch for over a year and I have enjoyed wearing it. There are many things to like about this watch, but two things stand out:
Pink gold tone hands and embossed dial: The color varies under different light conditions but it is such a warm color. Under the sunlight, glistening bronze reminds me of the sun's rays making that gold shine in the dark-age clocks around Prague. The bronze color make the dial come alive. I love the combination of polished case with the bronzed dial which is versatile for both jeans and suit. Although, the 1938 black looked better with the suit
Subtle bicompax design: The bicompax design is so subtle and minimal that your focus remains on the numbers and hands. Both the seconds counter and 30 min. register sit recessed in the dial. As a result, the dial looks uncluttered and it also makes the numbers more prominent.
