Love the dagger (alpha) hands

Very nice watch. Actually, I really like the dagger hands used in the old Chronometre Royals.  I am not a big fan of the pear hands on the current historiques CR.   The Batman model is of course very cool, but I pretty much like the aesthetics of the 47022 (although I am not too sure about the date window, and the smallish proportions). Best regards, Kazumi
Beautiful CR!

Hello Sciabbolleta, Thats a beautiful watch.  I am quite biased because I have a similar one, ref. 6110, made in 1955.  I think the only difference is the case, mine has different lugs.   I love to hear stories about vintage watches.  Can you tell us how you got the watch?  Has it been in your family for a long time?  Or did you find it at an antique dealer?  Were you specifically searching for one or did it just appear?  No matter how you got it, I hope you receive as much enjoyment from yours as I do mine. I haven't had time to take more and better pictures of my watch, but when I do, I'm sure I'll post them. Best Regards, Dan
