Notes

Consigned by the son of the original owner, this beautiful example of a bubbleback has been very well maintained and was retailed through the famed Rolex retailer Philippe Beguin in Geneva and even more surprising has a fully original black dial and the Geiger counter still reacts strongly confirming the original lume on the dial.
