Not as dressy, but this one is nice too. Unless you count the bezel as a complication.

I still have good eye sight :-) and therefore it is a non-issue for me.

Then there is all the details about the Breguet signature design elements in this watch, from the star wheels to the shock absorber to the frosted dial/movement plate
Thanks for your thoughts. It's been a model I've been eyeing for some time. Think it definitely represents great value on the grey market.

What is your wrist size? I am sure with some adjustment of the bracelet it would fit better.

How about two hands and a date (no seconds function)?

Many thanks! I think it might be my favorite dial I've ever seen in person (including the CB). The color is very dynamic and the fume gradient is executed perfectly.

Every once and a while I'll smile...but then I frown knowing there are so many more fume dial colors that I don't own.

My time-only triumvirate. Grand Seiko 4520-8000 36,000bph Hi-Beat, Lord Marvel 5740-8020 36,000bph Hi-Beat, and the King Seiko 4420-9990 Chronometer.

Seiko was absolutely killing it in the late '60s.
