Notes

Property of an important Italian family. Produced in 244 examples from 1981 to 1986 with the caliber 27-460 QPB, the majority in yellow gold, very few in pink or white gold. First series: leap year display in red on the dial. Second series: leap year display in Roman numerals on the dial. Made in very few examples with sapphire crystal back. Kept in all original condition, this example impresses by its mint dial condition as well as its sharp cases still exhibiting both crips hallmarks to the side of the case. According to the consignor this example has not been worn in the past 20 years.
