I was fortunate enough to have this watch loaned to me for review by Jerome Pineau of Clerc watches.

I really wanted to like this watch but in the end I was disappointed. This is a heavy watch, almost too heavy for normal use. I found the case too large and if you are going to have a date wheel, I would like to be able to see it. The date is far too small and useless in the opinion of this reviewer.
