HANDS Original


Launched in 1973, this reference was produced in a limited edition of 2000 examples, comprising five groups of four hundred watches each. Each watch bore an individual number, for example ?E 400?. The letters A through E designated the group, while the number indicated the watch?s position within the group. These numbers, very lightly engraved, tend to disappear during servicing or with wear. The present watch bears the number ?G 369? and remains in excellent, almost untouched condition.
