Notes

First presented in 2002, the Octa Calendar gained quick fame when it won the Special price of the Jury at the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie. When it was launched to the public, the earliest examples, such as this one, featured a brass movement before being replaced by the 18k gold movements.
These were produced during 3 years only and have become icons in the collecting world as approximately only 2000 of these were produced.
