Signed on dial and case, same number on the movement and case. DIAM. 46 mm. THICKNESS 7.5 mm. A very elegant slim watch. HAAS NEVEUX watches in platinum cases are rare. Digital perpetual calendar watches were introduced by Haas to the design of ROBERT CART. This one is particularly interesting because it also has a digital time display.
