Notes

Originally consigned by the family of the original owner, our collector was lucky enough to acquire this watch 6 years ago as one of the key pieces in his collection. Wanting a piece in exquisite condition it took him years before he found what he was searching for: a beautifully conserved 6263 Paul Newman with its original papers and sold new at Bucherer in Lausanne. Now looking to consolidate his collection, it is the great opportunity to acquire a completely original grail piece with all lume plots present perfectly matching to the hands and mounted on its original bracelet.
