    Saleroom Notice

    Please be informed that this watch is not a reference 3 model as stated in the printed version of the catalogue but a reference 2.

    Le numero de reference de cette montre n'est pas 3 comme stipule dans la version imprimee du catalogue mais 2. Par consequent elle n'a pas de reserve de marche non plus. Uniquement 55 exemplaires de la reference 2 en platine ont ete fabriques.
