    Agree with you the first is really nice
    The dial is really exciting
    My only regret is the calibre 18: sellita SW300 + Dubois-Depraz module
    It's not really innovative regarding the( crazy ) price announced in europe : 4600 euros

    you missed this one just hot off the presses




    I'm a little in two two minds about these.

    The narrow bezel and high dome crystal look fantastic but I have a fear for those crystals. hey last time they used them, they were a horribly expensive replacement piece and they are very exposed on these watches.

    But they do look really good here too.
    I've said elsewhere but the Calibre 7 (that's 2892/SW300) could well be the first non-chrono Carrera that I could see myself really liking; the 2892/SW300 makes it that little bit more interesting.

    Back to that crystal for a bit.

    The last time I checked the numbers, an official dome crystal for the older Carrera was something like a 500 part and that one wasn't a proper double dome like this one looks to be. It'd be interesting to find out how much a replacement for this one would cost.

    You can see the dime a little better in this other shot from David @Calibre11

    I love that panda dial. I bought one for my Speedmaster but I can't seem to convince myself to put it in there.
