BUCHERER 1970s 40MM STAINLESS MANUAL LEMANIA 1873 CHRONOGRAPH SILVER PATINA DIALBucherer
For auction is an exceptional Bucherer 9651 40mm stainless steel yachting chronograph caliber Lemania 1873 (same as an 861) tri-compax chronograph with great unusual patina dial. The silver portion of the dial has turned a darker color from aging of the dial lacquer; it creates a texture effect that is very appealing. A great mod shape it has very modern proportions: the 40mm cushion is massive especially mounted on a 22mm strap. The original polish case still has some sunburst finish left on the bezel and reads beautifully.
