Catalogue Note

Introduced in 1940, reference 1491 stayed in production until 1965 and was predominantly cased in yellow or pink gold. With its unusual "scrolled lugs", the reference quickly catches attention. This particular example further comes in unpolished condition with raised, hard enamel signature on the dial.
