Lot Essay

The present example of the extremely rare, collectible and aesthetically charming “Panda Paul Newman” is offered for sale by its original owner, who purchased the piece during a holiday in Switzerland in the 1970s. The watch has always been carefully looked after and properly serviced throughout the years: that is the reason behind the superbly well preserved dial. The bezel was exchanged for a metal one (belonging to ref. 6265) for aesthetic reasons on request of the client during one of such services.

This piece, bearing serial number 3’048’260, has an additional layer of appeal in being one of the last Panda dials produced: indeed, Panda Paul Newman dials will cease to be produced exactly around serial number 3’000’000 – and Paul Newman dials altogether will follow suit soon enough, at around 3’200’000, probably as a result of their limited success with the public.
