PROPERTY FROM DESCENDANTS OF HM MOHAMED LAMINE BEY
The present lot is fitted with one of the rarest dials Rolex has ever produced. This stunning lacquered and gilt dial, set with 6 diamonds, is a rarity usually found on triple calendars models such as the reference 6062. What is interesting to note, is that the present example set with 6 diamonds instead of the usual 5 and is the first example seen at auction with this rare combination (refer to lot 154 ref. 6105 which only has 3 diamonds). The historical provenance relating to his Highness Mohamed Lamine Bey adds to the exclusivity of the piece.

The present watch was the only one kept by Bey of Tunis from his personal collection as mentioned in the hand written letter from his direct descendant.
