Jacques Lemans Chronograph
The main hands of this watch are in a pommes de Breguet
style - a very classic one, and they match the classic appearance of
this watch very well.
All hands are painted(?) in shiny dark blue, looking exactly, as if they were heat blued. Only under a large lens, you can see, that they aren't. Perfect work.
All hands are just of the correct length. Although being a little bit longer would not have hurt, they just reach the dial markers, which ensures good readability.
4 out of 5 points for the hands.
The readability is a drawback of this watch. Since there are so
many hands (four hands alone in the center, two of them mostly static)
and all subdials have got two or more functions at the same time, it's
quite hard to capture the time(s) on a glance. You have to look in
details, sometimes even to count markers of the dials to read the
But to be honest - who doesn't want to look a little longer on such a beautiful watch. If you don't want to, a pilots' watch would be the better choice, but then you wouldn't get a 7751.
