At the time of its creation, this watch was photographed by the Manufacture, which proves the importance that was given to this kind of jewellery model.
These photographs are now kept in the company’s Heritage Department, and some of them have been reproduced in various books on the world’s oldest watch manufacturer; this is particularly the case in the book published in 1992.
