Catalogue Note

The present stainless steel example is not only rare due to the discontinuation of the reference in 2000, but also because of a small detail of its 6 o'clock register. The 6 o'clock graduation is indeed upside down. Collectors particularly value this dial, considered a rare variant of a future vintage classic. Furthermore the watch was overhauled in the second quarter of 2019.
