Notes

Favoured by specialised collectors, the reference 6262 is basically an upgraded 6239 featuring the new movement reference 727. Produced during one year only, this niche reference can only follow its sister references in ranks of collectablity. Kept in wonderful condition with a case indicating less than average polish, its original dial is in wonderful condition with all original luminous plots still present.
