Lot Essay

This watch is accompanied by a Gay Freres stainless steel link bracelet. Gay Freres of Geneva specialized in jewelry, but had a tremendous reputation for producing high quality bracelets for wristwatches. While Gay Freres produced bracelets for many manufacturers, they are strongly associated with Rolex and Patek Philippe.

The design of this watch draws strongly from the Patek Philippe reference 96, calatrava model.
