Catalogue Note

This watch with its ribbed bezel and tapisserie dial, a technique also repeated on the case back, epitomises the style of the 60s. The dial is particularly special as it is signed Gubelin above the subsidiary seconds. What is more the applied baton and square indexes have, with time, oxidised elevating the character of this already very charming timepiece even further. Exceptionally rare, the watch has been retained in very crisp and original condition.
