HANDS Original


Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 36 mm. THICKNESS 13 mm. Approx. overall length 160 mm. Property of the original Swiss owner Bought new by the current owner in Switzerland, this first generation Evil Nina has been kept in excellent all original condition. Still mounted on its original Gay Freres Universal bracelet dated 1967, the watch has been worn on rare occasions which still explains its crisp case and reference numbers on the outside caseback.
