Notes

 Provenance Antiquorum, November 13, 2011, Lot 388 Never seen at auction before its appearance in 2011, this Aero-Compax has the rarest configuration of the black dial with the signature around the top sub-counter as it is often the case on the earliest versions. Never seen with a stelline dial, it was probably made on custom-order.
