Notes

Available in mostly steel, versions of the reference 3903 in precious metals are extremely rare and platinum are almost never seen. In fact this is the first platinum example to surface on the market to the best of our knowledge and the fact that the dial is fitted with baguette diamonds further increases its desirability combined with its well maintained case still exhibiting 2 very nice hallmarks to the case.
