The gold version of the reference 5161 is an extremely rare timepiece. Housed in a wonderful 39, it is equipped with the legendary 13ZN with a central-minute counter for the chronograph. Probably made as a special order for a doctor, it is even more unusual by the fact that it has the retailers signature confirmed by the extract delivered to Cuba.
