Provenance

The present watch No. 02/07 remained in the hands of the original owners family until now. This limited edition, of which seven examples were made, was purchased through Robert Darblay who commissioned them for himself and other members of his family.

It is very interesting to notice that this example has remained in its original condition with all its accessories. Being No. 2 of the seven pieces made and bearing the initials 'RD' makes this piece a very rare item for collectors.
