Here is my De Luca (first series), black dial, ofcourse El Primero movement.


I prefered the first series because of

- the plexi dial. Sapphire might be better in the way that it does not scratch but doomed plexi can be so beautifull
- the text on the dial. I wanted as less words as possible so only the first series did not mention 'El Primero' and 'chronograph'
- the hour markers that are rectangular and not the rounds dots
- the hands which are very nice on this black version. I did not want the Rolex style Mercedes hands.
The hands on the first series white dial De Luca are also nice ( AP RO and PP Nautilus style) but the dauphine are imo the most beautifull on this piece
- no screw down pushers on the upper and lower pusher



AFAIK these De Luca watches were made between 1988 and 1996. Since this is a first edition it must be from 1988 or 1989. I also found more about the production numbers on the net
the 01.0042.400 (mine) was made in 1055 pieces in total. 375 in 1988 and 680 in 1989.






















nice patina !
