Lot Essay

Consigned by an important private collector, the combination of features that appear on the present specimen is hard to beat. It is distinguished by the blue dial with diamond indexes, a most elegant variant, and the calendar indications in Arabic scripture, both for day and for date. Preserved in very good overall condition, the case back retains the original protective sticker.

A primordial region for fine watchmaking, the Middle-East has encouraged manufactures throughout the years to create special order timepieces for Royal families or wristwatches with characteristics tailored for the region. Symbol of luxury and prestige, the model was often presented by the rulers as gifts or token of esteem.
