Notes

Released right after the reference 16750, the so called “Fat Lady” reference 16760 was nicknamed due to its thicker case. Early versions, such as this 8 million serial, places it in its first year of production and exhibits a beautiful patina to the indexes and hands. Kept in excellent condition, still with some rests of the caseback sticker, it has the rare particularity of not having the word “Date” on the dial, which was rapidly introduced thereafter, making this early 16760 sought after, especially with its original box and punched warranty.
