    Perhaps, but on a Sub (which I am not a fan, but admit is an absolute classic) I am reading the time and on this the text, as with the rest of the design, just seemed a bit much - busy.

    One of my favorite watches ever since I saw it about a year and a half ago.

    I do wish that it were the same size as the chrono version as I guess I've fallen for the larger watch fad.

    Very, very nice though!

    This watch was a gift from one of my clients. Not something that I would have picked out but it's get's some wear from time to time. Anybody familiar with Jean Pierre Lepine?

    Does this dial really say:
    Tag Heuer
    Grand Carrera
    Calibre 6?
    Automatic Chronometer
    Offically Certified
    Swiss Made

    ?
    on one watch dial? They seem to be substituting text for complications
    Busy, and in 2 tone - busy.
    Meh



    A counter-point to all the text on the dial

    I've never heard of it but I love it. Where could I get one?

    Nice, I had the Richeville version. I regret letting it go. [​IMG]

    After I received it, about a year or two ago, I emailed the company to get some info. From what I can remember they did not have a US distributor at the time. They did not have a problem shipping to the US though, the total cost would be about $3400.

    Beautiful watch, if they add breguet hands on that Richeville, it would be the perfect watch for me. For some reason those hands seem out of place on that elegant dial.

    Richeville is an understated, classic watch - very nice.

    ^^ Just to clarify that the square one is 'Vintage 1945' and the barrel shaped one is the 'Richeville' one.

    Artoftime seems to be have the quoted the 1945 while commenting about the Richeville or vice versa by mistake

    Artoftime has simply had too much Bordeaux for one evening and may have indeed quoted on the Richeville while illustrating the 1945...alas, realizes both the 1945 and the Richeville to be both - elegant pieces.
