Notes

Part of the line of dress Explorers, these early references 6152 almost all have the same characteristics such as the crossed out reference 6150 inside the caseback and the number 18 stamped on the lug. These dress watches lack the word explorer on the dial and this particular example ticks all the boxes in terms of collectability. Not only does it feature its original bracelet dated 1954, its honeycomb dial is in mint condition, its DEPTH is written in red and has the very rare retailers signature from Joyeria Riviera. What more can a collector ask for?
