Sotheby's New York, April 2004, lot 317

Reference 725 was introduced in 1940 and produced until approximately 1964. Very few examples are known of the straight line or American Calendar perpetuals. It is also the watch that inspired the new wristwatch with straight line perpetual calendar reference 5236P.


The present watch has been retained in a excellent state with lovely dial and a very crisp case.
