HANDS Original


Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 36 mm. THICKNESS 14 mm. This 6075 is considered by many as the BIG BUBBLEBACK due to its impressive size and THICKNESS considering it was produced as early as the late 1940's. This example is impressive by its condition, a super thick mint case, deep hallmark on the caseback, original super Oyster crown, wonderful cream color dial, original all red date wheel, this has to be one of the nicest examples ever offered at auction.
