First of all, I wanted a 6542 for many years, as I was always seduced by the lack of crownguards, on this reference, which gives a distinctive look to the GMT.
Like with the GMT, the no crownguard version gains in purity, in my opinion, even if some crownguards Subs and GMTs are sublime.
Then,TAG Heuer Link WAT1417.BA0954 Watch, once I knew I had to get one 6542, I still had to decide which one to get, which is indeed a more complicated matter.
Gilt dial, or matt?
Bakelite bezel, or SS?
Things are awfully complicated.
In the absolute, the gilt dial / bakelite bezel is THE combination to go for,replica frank muller iron croco, of course, but you’ll have to face two major problems: The bakelite bezel are as rare as they’re fragile, and finding one in good condition is not an easy thing.
The price is another issue, as this ideal combination has reached the sky, and they are not always in nice condition.
So, a bit like on a Vintage Ferrari, once you’ve done the effort to get one perfect 6542, you alaways have the risk to see Dream turning into Nightmare, if you break the bezel, which is,richard mille rm 036 price, sadly, a very possible hypothesis.
I could also opt for the gilt Swiss dial and a metal insert,Patek Philippe watches, which is, historically, a correct combination ( end of production 6542 ).
Or, a correct service dial with a correct bezel and a metal insert…
I tried several 6542 these last months, and I took the time to cover all the situations / Combinations.
And I finally made my mind on the most reasonnable ( but not less exciting ) solution,Montblanc Villeret Watches.
