Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 41 mm. THICKNESS 14 mm. Property of the Original Swiss Owner After buying the watch in 2008 and preferring the esthetics of the new black dial launched in 2013, he sent the watch back to the factory for a standard dial exchange including a new set of hands at a cost of CHF 2'200. Now discontinued since the launch of the stainless steel in 2014, the black dial is certainly the rarest of the dials.
