aj_del - i have not seen that Chopard before. what model is it? i love its simplicity re: the Christopher Ward watches, i admit i was floored at seeing an automatic with a Swiss movement watch in such an appealing package for such a low price. but is the Sellita movement any good? who has experience with this?

Its the Chopard LUC Mark III Classic in steel. IMHO one of the most VFM watch out there.

Kudos.

Nothing wrong with a Selita movement. It's a quality movement.

Well said re: CW watches, audiophilia.

This watch has the 3.96 which I think is the less sophisticated cousin of 1.96 in the sense that it does not have the Geneva seal and the breguet overcoil. The 1.96 can only be found in watches with gold cases and those are substantially more expensive.

I paid around 5000 USD for this in HK and am very happy to get a watch of this finishing in that price.
