Notes

 Acknowledged in 1962 for launching the famed bivouac model which allowed climbers to get both altitude and humidity using a mechanical gauge. Made in 3 different versions, one with a plain silver dial and 2 different blue dial versions, this example has been kept in excellent overall condition.
