Notes

Made in small quantities, the "De-Luxe" version of the Carrera was made in 18k yellow gold. Found with both baton and dauphine hands, this particular example is only 3 case numbers away from a previous 2456 sold by Antiquorum in 2009 that beared all the same characteristics as the present model. Worn very little it has remained in excellent overall condition.
