I almost drooled on this watch, but I didn’t. Oh, also, it is in pristine condition and has a balance of the factory warranty, although you shouldn’t need it since this piece was averaging 0 seconds of gain or loss with no position outside of COSC specs on a full power reserve (36-38 hours BTW). This brand doesn’t apply for COSC certification, but I think you would be right to expect those results from a brand of this prestige and quality.
It has been over a year since we have seen a 36mm Explorer. Having learned the lesson of the GMT Master and the Submariner, collectors seem to be holding tight to these discontinued models. This piece is in top condition (Like New) and complete with Box and Papers. If you are collector without a 36mm Explorer, this piece would make a great addition to your collection.
We happen to have two nearly identical 03-92 Carbons side by side, but this one is clearly the better deal since a factory rubber strap is only $125 from the Bell & Ross E-boutique and this watch comes on an awesome $585 shagreen (stingray) strap.
We don’t always carry Baume & Mercier, but the Capeland Chrono is a model we will almost always happily buy and sell in good condition. The design is timeless and simple, not too large or small and the Valjoux 7750 movement makes it reliable as can be. This version of the Capeland was made in the early 2000s, but don’t fret, this specific piece was babied (Like New condition) and we just had it serviced, so it will carry a year of warranty from the watchmaker.
One thing we’ve always liked about Jean Richard is the quality of complications you get for the price. You’ll enjoy watching the retrograde seconds on a regular basis. The strap and buckle are not original to the watch, but are matched well to the model and brand new.
