Dear everyone, Quite some time since I last visited the Calibre11 forum, but I hope that you give me just a nice welcome this time as I was offered when I once begun seeking information on TH watches! Nonetheless, I'm pleased to see that you guys keep the forum up and running with plenty of interesting reading for me to catch up on. Quite some years ago I saw a watch on the TH website that sparked my interest; the Carrera Calibre 7 in 18ct yellow gold. Fast forward a couple of years and I'm still quite intrigued by it. When it was still available it was way too expensive for me and if truth is to be told I better spend my hard-worked money on something else, but you know the drill. For me it seems to be somewhat of a perfect fit: a bit smaller, no thrills; time only, and most importantly; GOLD and a nice alligator/crocodile strap. Perfect! But since I don't earn those "Wolf-of-wallstreet" kind of money it's still quite a bit. However I've managed to find one site that has a price of around 6000euros. Therefore I was wondering whether this watch has a case of solid 18ct gold or whether its "capped" or some similiar method to shrinken the price. I've had a couple of gold capped watches before and I'm affraid the Carrera would also loose some of its gold over time and instead show spots where steel would be seen. As we all know, everything becomes better with pictures, so here's something to look at, kudos to the initial blogpost of Calibre11.
