Basel News - Clerc

Postby boscoe » February 18th 2011, 11:42am

One of my favorite brands! Though this one looks a bit funky. Hate the crown guard.


Image

The Odyssey S is made from materials derived from aerospace industry research, such as its silicon regulating organ. The Manufacture-made calibre is equipped with twin barrels ensuring a six-day power reserve. A dial opening at 10 o’clock provides a view of the balance-spring and balance, protected by a blue-tinted sapphire crystal, while the countdown is read off on the inner rotating bezel, and the three-dimensional dial provides an admirable stage-setting for the various displays.
Movement Automatic, Manufacture-made, twin-barrel Calibre C201, 45 jewels, 28,800 vib/h, black gold-plated bevelled bridges, six-day power reserve
Functions Hours, minutes, seconds, retrograde date and power-reserve indicator
Case Stainless steel and grade 5 polished titanium, 44 mm
Inner rotating bezel
Exclusive sliding protective mechanism for the pushers and crown
Sapphire crystal with anti-glare treatment, front and back
Water-resistant to 100 m / 10 ATM
Dial Openworked with balance visible through a blue-tinted sapphire crystal
Retrograde date between 1 and 4 o’clock
Power-reserve indicator at 6 o’clock
Bracelet/Strap Black alligator leather with folding clasp
Seriously expensive!

I just picked up my first Clerc, should get here Monday. Basically a trade for my Oris from WoW. Looking forwards to it. My wife thought it was a little bold, we'll see.

Nice looking watches. I agree with you Boscoe about that crown guard. A bit much for the watch but still a nice looking one.

To be honest, Its hard to say. Only because I've never seen one in person. Three yrs ago while I was at TJ Max I bought a Gc watch I'm wearing it as I type this. I got it for $120 at first I had no idea what Gc stood for, So I did some research and found out it was made by Guess. Gc= Guess Collection Swiss Made watches. I got a steal for mines because retail is around $350. It took me a week to realize it was Swiss Made LOL. Here's a pic

So would I call Clerc a Boutique Brand probably not, My Gc yes because of the name.

Thank you sir. For some reason, it's the only "dive" watch I own that I actually dive/snorkel in. Rugged with good lume.

Yes, I bought it a few years back from SWI. They stopped producing them in 2004-05 as I recall.

I would go Clerc Hydroscaph over Panny Submersible all day long, but that's just me. I like Clerc but just one AD in the US (Kenjo in NYC) just isnt going to cut it for me.
