According to the Archives of Montres Breguet, the present calendar wristwatch no. 1039 with yellow gold case, pink gilt dial, subsidiary seconds and moon phase was made in 1951 and sold to Mme Ferry on 16 December 1952, sum not mentioned.
Watch no. 1039 is a very fine example of one of the exceedingly rare triple calendar wristwatches made by Breguet between the late 1940s and early 1950s. Believed to be part of an extremely small series of possibly only around five of such calendar watches, the appeal of the present specimen is furthermore enhanced by the pink gilt dial, rendering it a most unique appearance.
