Notes

 Few of the limited editions bring such envy and excitement to collectors as the Apollo Soyuz. Made in 1976 for the Italian market in 500 pieces (as confirmed by the extract from the archives), this example was made within the first 100 pieces and has been kept in close to mint condition. From the crisp engravings to the caseback, the correct specific bracelet reference 1168 and its original larger pushers, its overall condition can only please the most demanding collectors.
