HANDS Original


Dial, case and movement signed. DIM. 26 x 34 mm. THICKNESS 4.5 mm. Although not marked CELLINI on the dial, there is no doubt that this elegant rectangular dress watch could have integrated that line easily. Rarely seen at auction and featuring a screw-down back, an interesting watch made bigger in its size by its tank-like design case.
