Here's a rare Bucherer Hardlife that does not appear to have had one. It’s an "Anakin"-style chrono with a hard metal tungsten case in near mint condition. They don't get any better than this and you don’t often see this perfection since the cases had a tendency to chip.

Even more amazing — the metallic-blue dial with chrome-framed subdials and bright orange seconds hand. The white tachy ring is in mint condition and the thick mineral crystal is perfect, like the day it was made.

This beast is 44mm wide and 50mm from lug to lug. Under the hood is a Lemania 1872 winding movement, keeping excellent time.

Can you resist?
