Notes

 Property of the original French family 
 Consigned by the original family, this pink gold Tri-Compax is in a rare state of conservation. Despite some oxidation to the dial, the case shows little wear with sharp angles and small pin holes, crisp French gold hallmarks and an almost never seen original warranty dated 1956 and matching instruction booklet, what a find.
