Hi Guys and Gals,
How many versions of the MB NICOLAS RIEUSSEC are there?
I dont mean material variations as in steel, gold etc. I mean models like home time, rising hour etc.
A few months late to this thread but I've been looking at Rieussec models for about a year now and lately mulling over the idea of selling off a Seamaster to get one - specifically your model, the 111012.The build quality, fit, finish, timekeeping, power reserve are all A+. The mono-pusher is the smoothest and most precise "click" I've ever had on a chronograph. I'm not in love with the nipple-shaped crown -- it doesn't offer much grip -- and the printing on the date wheel is quite a bit darker than the printing on the dial, but I'm just getting nit-picky. For a pen company, they make a pretty good watch.
I'm so happy to have a chance to discuss this wonderful watch.A few months late to this thread but I've been looking at Rieussec models for about a year now and lately mulling over the idea of selling off a Seamaster to get one - specifically your model, the 111012.
Are you still enjoying the watch or now that its been awhile, have you found it getting less and less wrist time?
And speaking of wrists, does it sit well on yours? I know it's a bit chunky but I've got a 44mm Panerai that wears well - its definitely the max though.
One hesitation I've had is, should I ever want to flip it for something else, it would be difficult.
Do you have any regrets with it or is it as nice as all the photos lead me to believe?
Re: the chronograph, yes, I usually keep in running in lieu of an active seconds, as I feel the same way about having a seconds hand. It's a nice subtle motion on the dial, adding one more charming quirk to this watch.One final question - can you really leave the chrono running indefinitely?
When I heard that it's possible with this movement, it completely erased my concern for a missing seconds hand.
I have my doubts but I believe the source of the info to be reputable so I want to believe it.
Excellent watch and much thanks for the insight.
I might seal the deal soon!
