I am absolutely in love with this watch. I especially love the 60 second sub-dial, the index markers for the numbers, and the case and face of the watch. I was wondering what the general opinions about Claude Bernard are? This watch is selling for around 400 US$, for a Swiss Made Quartz, which I feel is pricey for a Quartz. (I am partial to automatics!) Is there anything with similar styling keeping it under 1000US$? Or is this a fairly good deal for the money? I am looking for general opinions, advice, and suggestions so feel free to comment! Thanks in advance!
The Official Description
Complete your sophisticated look with the striking execution and enduring craftsmanship of Claude Bernard. The Classic begins with a round silver-tone case and fixed bezel crafted from high polish finished stainless steel. Completing the sleek 8mm thick build, a textured push and pull crown puts control at your fingertips.
Set beneath a sapphire crystal, a round dial in your choice of black or silver-tone displays silver-tone stick index markers at all hour positions on the chapter ring. The textured inner dial displays a date window below 12:00 and a seconds subdial above 6:00. Dauphine-style hour and minute hands, and a silver-tone subdial hand find their power from a precise Swiss Made Ronda 6004.B Quartz Movement.
A handsome crocodile embossed leather strap comes in black with the black dial, or in brown with the silver-tone dial. Tapering from 20mm wide to 18mm wide at the last hole, the strap fits up to approximately an 8-1/4" wrist and secures with a logo etched silver-tone buckle clasp. Keep classic Swiss made style by your side with Claude Bernard.
