Catalogue Note

This quintessential day-date has a couple of special features that sets it apart from its contemporaries.  Immediately noticeable is the Arabic date and day disks and the Arabic inscription to the case back.  The inscription reveals that the watch was a gift, awarded to an employee of the Arabian American Oil Company for his 30 years of service.  The watch is further retained in very nice and original condition.
